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

    This was a hit!! My husband was so tickled by the presentation that he took pictures. It was so easy I felt guilty accepting his praise. Good and good for you, it was also just plain fun. Will break this out again. Especially for guests. Next time will make my spouse's with over easy eggs--his favorite.

    Everything is right about this recipe!Although, in my house we use spicy salsa, and sometimes cook the eggs sunny-side up.
