Combine two delicious meals into one with these huevos rancheros enchiladas filled with a hearty mix of Mahatma® White Rice, savory chorizo, cheese and beans. Top each oven-baked enchilada with a fried egg, sliced avocado, cotija cheese and cilantro for a tasty and satisfying dish!
Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare white rice according to package directions. Let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet set over medium heat; cook chorizo for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Let cool slightly.
Spread half of the enchilada sauce in bottom of greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish; set aside.
Stir together rice, chorizo, 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, and beans.
Place 1/3 cup of the rice filling in center of each tortilla. Roll up tightly; place seam side down in prepared baking dish. Spread remaining enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining Monterey Jack cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 18 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through.
Place 2 enchiladas on each plate; top each serving with fried egg. Garnish with avocado, cotija cheese and cilantro.
Substitute poached eggs for fried eggs if preferred.
While huevos rancheros are a common breakfast or brunch meal, when you turn them into enchiladas they make for a great anytime meal for lunch or dinner too! Loaded with hearty rice and beans, chorizo, vegetables and egg you’ve got everything you need to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
Loaded with tasty ingredients, you’re guaranteed flavor in every bite! While authentic huevos rancheros are traditionally made with fried eggs served on top of corn or flour tortillas with salsa, avocado and refried beans, this version wraps everything together.
Starting with the filling, use your choice of spicy or mild chorizo, hearty white rice, Monterey Jack cheese and canned pinto beans to carefully spoon into your tortillas. We suggest using corn tortillas, however, flour tortillas will work just as well if desired. Once you’ve got your tortillas filled, they are oven-baked to perfection in red enchilada sauce and extra cheese!
Toppings can include (but not limited to): fried, poached or scrambled eggs, avocado, cotija cheese, cilantro and even salsa if desired.
