Huevos Rancheros with Tomatillo Sauce

 Huevos Rancheros with Tomatillo Sauce
My husband and I visited Cuernavaca, Mexico, a year ago and had huevos rancheros for breakfast while there. There my husband loved it so much he asked me to cook it for him when got home. This is my version, which is suited to my family's preference for sunny side up eggs, but poached or scrambled eggs would also be good. —Cheryl Woodson, Liberty, Missouri
