We continue to frequent Toast mainly because of our friend, Sarah's, obsession with their huevos rancheros. I don't think I've ever been there with her, and she hasn't ordered it. Whenever she is in town, it is an imperative that we meet one morning at the restaurant for breakfast so that she can have her fix of her beloved dish. I have yet to try the dish because it is so rich and unappetizing to my early morning tummy. One of these days I'm going to work up the nerve though, because I am certain I'm missing out on something fairly spectacular, spectacular.
Until that time, I have created my own huevos rancheros dish to hold me over. It is a very simple dish to make and quite healthy for you, full of protein (something I can never get enough of).
Start off with a corn tortilla. Warm it up a little with some oil in a frying pan over low heat. You want it to be a little crispy. Place it on your serving plate. Add a couple spoonfuls of warmed black beans and a fried egg. Next comes a bit of salsa, homemade, or I like Pace's medium chunky on just about everything Mexican. Sprinkle on a bit of either cheddar or jack cheese. A generous helping of guacamole sits on top, crowned by a dollop of sour cream.
