Mexican Take-In

2 posts already on Sunday? What is going on? ;) Usually, it’s all I can do to get one post up at night after dinner.

The sun was out a minute ago, but it looks like it went back into hiding for now. At least the rain has stopped!

My original plan for lunch today was to have leftovers from what would have been our dinner last night. But since we went to that potluck last night, I didn’t make a dinner for us, so there were no leftovers!

While I didn’t have anything quick to heat up, I did have the stuff to make an easy meal.

I know my dad will love seeing this meal :)  He loves huevos rancheros! And so do we.


I had a salad with romaine, scallions, black beans, corn, and a little ranch dressing alongside my tortillas.


For the huevos, I just took 4 corn tortillas (2 for each of us) and put them on a baking sheet. I heated the oven to 400 degrees and mixed some fat free refried beans with some garlic, dried cilantro, and cumin.

Dollop a little of the bean mixture on each tortilla and top with a little cheese. Put the baking sheet in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Once those were almost ready, I cooked some eggs on the stove top with some salt, pepper, and ancho chile powder, and then just topped the tortillas once they came out of the oven.


I also had some TJ’s green salsa, red salsa, and a little scallion on mine.


Roxy is already staring me down for dinner and that’s not happening. I’ve got some laundry to work on and some One Tree Hill to watch  :)

I have a fun dinner planned to use up some leftovers – can’t wait!
