Throwdown!

Do you watch Bobby Flay's Throwdown? I love that show.

One night last week he made Huevos Rancheros and I couldn't be satisfied until I had one on my plate. I have never made them but think of trying often. I started my search for a good recipe on The Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen site...I mean if you can't find what you are looking for there, it doesn't exist. I found two good looking recipes and kinda combined the ingredients that I had on hand to form a recipe of my own.

The flavor was perfect and satisfied my craving (for the time being).
This is going to become a regular at my house.







I fried corn tortillas for just seconds on each side.
Spread refried beans on tortillas, then sprinkled with shredded cheddar.
Heat salsa (I used store bought).
When salsa is hot and coming to a boil, break eggs in a salsa, cover and let cook until desired doneness. Kind of like poaching an egg in salsa. I let my yellow get a little too done...it didn't run like I like it to do. Spoon eggs and salsa on tortilla, add more cheese and top with cilantro....yum, yum!

This even got a good review from the resident critic...only request was to add some meat of some sort!! ugh.

Tonight is the finale for The Next Foodnetwork Star! Who do you want to win? My favorite, Brad is gone....but I still like Herb and Tom. I think the judges have been for Aarti since day one...they have had several opportunities to send her packing but never do. It's a great show and fun to watch the competitions. The pressure would make me pack my knives and go home from the very beginning/ha

That looks good, Nanny.... I don't watch any of the 'cooking-type' shows on TV... Just not an interest of mine, even though I love to eat... We watch alot of drama and I love sports.. We also watch Fox News.

Hope you had a good weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sounds deeeee-licious!

I didn't read Eat, Pray, Love - one of the few people who didn't, I know. Jerry is ok with an occasional chick flick if it's a good one. He seemed to be up for it, so we'll see. I'll keep you posted...
