Happy Cinco de Mayo. I made you guys some Huevos Rancheros. Okay, so I took some liberties with it by making it a Huevos Rancheros casserole recipe. Traditional or not, this is a face-stuffing breakfast that you can stack as high as your belly can take.
By that I mean, this recipe is highly adaptable. A good thing in my home, since it’s full of picky eaters and everyone has their little likes and dislikes. It’s something I’ve come to embrace. And the reason why you see all those small dishes with all the fixings to add in afterwards.
Of course, I did make a one without the spinach, since Matt can eat that (although I’m not even sure he likes it). Funny thing, he is really getting into cooking, so it’s helping to open up his repertoire. But even with that, our house is split when it comes to savory food. It’s somewhere between being calorie-laden carnivorous dishes to what you generally see here–recipes that are usually non-meat and filled with veggies, since that’s more my speed.
Hit the jump here, to Better Homes and Gardens blog Delish Dish to see what all those add-ins are.

That sounds so amazing and so easy. I love using frozen potato products, they’re like the secret to an easy meal. Especially considering I can’t cook. 🙂
