huevos rancheros or not

all of a sudden i had this craving for huevos rancheros but if you want to eat the real deal then it's quite cumbersome to do, i mean i need to make guacamole, i need to have nachos/tortilla and refried beans to make it really authentic.

i've resolved to just having "baked" eggs or something similar since i've seen some blog posts of a similar dish. so finally, i gave into my craving months after.

saute some chopped onions, put some canned chopped tomatoes (you can use any type of canned tomato in my opinion the key here is to have something saucy enough. you can even use tomato sauce and fresh chopped tomatoes but i was going for this certain effect so canned chopped tomatoes it was), put some seasoning i've used jalapeno, cayenne and oregano (the specks you see on the top of the eggs) maybe you can use other spices to make it either italian or mexican like basil or cumin, salt and of course the eggs. cover it if you want a certain level of doneness, for this dish i like my eggyolks a bit done on the outsides and just soft and creamy inside. i also topped this with cheese afterwards. perfect with garlic bread or any crusty bread heck you can dip your nachos in this as well.
