Huevos Rancheros

This one’s a spicy Mexican dish, adapted to make sure you get a good intake of greens.


2 eggs,

4 lettuce leaves,

1 green chilli, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, sliced or crushed

pinch of paprika

extra virgin olive oil

Fry the eggs in oil.  In another pan, heat a glug of oil with a tablespoon of water.  Add the garlic.  Once that’s browned, add the onion, chilli and paprika.  Allow to boil then simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  When the eggs are fried to your liking, sit each one atop a lettuce leaf on a plate.  Add the spicy onions on top – they will cook the eggs a little more.  Cover with the remaining leaves of lettuce.  Enjoy 🙂
