For a festive Mexican breakfast, we do chorizo and huevos rancheros. Add refried beans and cheddar, and serve everything in bowls made of tortillas. —Paul Williams, Fort Mohave, Arizona

  • 2 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup refried beans
  • 4 ounces fresh chorizo
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mild salsa
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Spritz both sides of tortillas with cooking spray. Press tortillas onto bottom and up sides of two 1-1/2-qt. ovenproof bowls. Bake until edges are just browned, 8-10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes; remove from bowls. Cool completely.
  2. Microwave beans, covered, on high until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Spread half in each tortilla bowl.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, cook and crumble chorizo over medium heat until cooked through, 4-6 minutes; spoon half in each tortilla bowl. Wipe out skillet. Add eggs; scramble, cooking until thickened and no liquid egg remains. Meanwhile, microwave salsa, covered, on high until heated through, 1 minute.
  4. Spoon eggs over beans; top with salsa. Sprinkle with cheese.
