My friend Rachel loves Huevos Rancheros, which she calls Wavy Rancheroos. This breakfast pie is a nod to her favorite dish.

Spicy, flavorful and very satisfying, these fluffy Rancheroos are great any time of the day. I top mine off with a little salsa and sour cream.... mmmm, good!

Ingredients For wavy rancheroos

  • 3 sm
    flour tortillas
  • 6
    large eggs
  • 1/2 c
  • 1 1/2 c
    cheddar cheese, shredded (I use Cabot 50% reduced fat jalapeno)
  • 1/2 can
    green chiles, chopped (4.5 oz)
  • 1/8 tsp
    ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp
    ground red pepper

How To Make wavy rancheroos

  • 1
    Preheat over to 350º. Arrange tortillas in a 10" deep dish pie plate.
  • 2
    In a large bowl beat eggs and milk together, adding chiles and spices.
  • 3
    Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese on the tortillas. Pour half the egg mixture over the cheese. Add 1/3 more cheese, then the remainder of the egg mixture. Top with the rest of the cheese.
  • 4
    Cook for 30 - 45 minutes, until the tortilla crust is browned and the egg mixture is golden and set. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving - it will deflate a bit - and serve with salsa, sour cream or guacamole.
