Yankee Rancheros

After my in-laws began affectionately referring to me as a Yankee, I decided I needed to learn to make a few Mexican dishes. These rancheros are super easy and make my Tex-Mex-loving family happy—even if they do come from a Northerner. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

    4 servings


  • 5 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes (about 15 ounces)

  • Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, mix beans and salsa. Microwave, covered, on high until heated through, 1-2 minutes, stirring once. In a large nonstick skillet, heat naan over medium-high heat until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes per side; remove from pan. Keep warm.

      This was delicious and would make a great light dinner too. I added a bit of cumin and garlic and chili powder along with some minced red onion to the beans and used salsa verde because I didn't have fresh read salsa. Pepper jack cheese. Great, simple, tasty recipe!

      These were AMAZING! I did our eggs over easy, because runny egg yolks and hash browns are perfection.Loved the refried beans on the bread. We will be eating this again.

      This was easy, satisfying, and it's easy to change up the spiciness level for different family members. We really liked having the rancheros on the naan bread!
