Introduction: Huevos Divorciados

Picture of Huevos Divorciados

Huevos Divorciados is a famous breakfast dish from South of the boarder down in Mexico City, much like Huevos Racheros.

Here is what you will need:

½ cup olive oil*
2 corn tortillas
2 large eggs
¼ cup green salsa
¼ cup red salsa
½ cup pinto or black beans, cooked

All above ingredients are for one serving. Double or triple etc. the ingredients as to the number of mouths to feed.

*avocado oil is best to use as it has a higher smoke point. You can can heat avocado oil to 500 degrees without it smoking or the flavor changing or becoming toxic to digestive system. Olive oil has a smoke point  to 350 degrees. 

Step 1:

In a small sauce pan warm beans and set aside. Also be sure to warm the red and green salsas, set aside as well.

Yes I use butter. To cook a perfect egg..1 tbsp. or so of butter. Break egg into pan. Put 1 tbsp. water into pan. Place lid over pan. Timer on for 1 minuet. Slice egg onto plate. It is evenly cook all over including top.

If you don't mind the butter flavor, butter oil(ghee) has an equally high smoke point. I love my eggs fried in it. If you leave all the oil in the pan, you may not have to return it to heat. The larger volume holds a lot of heat.
