I grew up with my mom making my sister and I huevos rancheros as a child. I replaced the eggs with pan fried tofu. It is a quick and easy breakfast dish to make; savory, spicy, simple, and delicious!
On another note, my good friend Krystal surprised us with an iron skillet, and I’m obsessed. You use less oil, it’s chemical-free and boosts your food with Iron! It’s pretty cool stuff! (Thanks Krystal!) If you don’t have one, I definitely recommend one.
