Modified huevos rancheros.

The past couple of weekends, we've been frequenting our local Bubby's for brunch, craving their light and delicious huevos rancheros. Brunching out, while definitely enjoyable, is not always the most economical way to approach weekend noms.

When I woke up today at the crack of 11:30, craving huevos rancheros for the third weekend in a row, I decided to take matters (and some of my Super Bowl Sunday leftovers) into my own hands.

Modified Huevos Rancheros
Corn tortillas
Eggs, any style
Chili (leftover; substituted for black beans)
Guacamole (leftover; substituted for salsa and avocado)

I warmed corn tortillas in a hot skillet, two apiece. Spread piping-hot leftover chili on top of the tortillas, maybe 2/3 cup per plate. Two eggs, scrambled, atop the chili. Garnish with heaping a spoonful of Super Bowl guacamole, two slices of bacon, and serve.

Not as pretty as Bubby's, but a superb start to the day nonetheless.

Sir approved.

Meanwhile, caught kitty snuggled up with his little orange dude, a present from Auntie Rachel. I may or may not have staged these photos.

O hai, Sir Ian.

Lazy mornings filled with delicious noms - after weeks like that one, Saturdays don't get a whole lot better than this.
