Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 10 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Cup light cream
  • 8 Ounces Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 10-ounce can red enchilada sauce
  • 4 Ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 tortillas

Directions

Grease crock pot with the butter.

In a large bowl combine eggs, cream, Mexican cheese, pepper, and chili powder. Add the garlic and chiles and stir. Pour into the crock pot, cover, and cook on low for 3 hours and 45 minutes.

Top tortillas with eggs, and serve immediately.

Huevos Rancheros Shopping Tip

Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmers' market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Huevos Rancheros Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
