"Authentic" Huevos Rancheros?

Boston_Otter | Nov 5, 2012 06:28 AM

Years ago, I drove through New Mexico and ate a ton of huevos rancheros with lovely smoky, spicy sauces and toasted corn tortillas with fresh guacamole, buttery fried (or poached) eggs, cilantro, corn... a great breakfast or lunch or dinner.

I've had the most bizarre versions of it around Boston. The Friendly Toast gave me a pair of fried eggs next to a stack of texas toast covered in melted cheese with a blop of Trader Joe's Avocado's Number guac. Redbones served me a plate of BBQ hash and bacon with a trio of fried eggs next to it and a wedge of unripe avocado; when I asked for corn tortillas, they said no -- but when I pointed out that the menu describes it as "mexican style eggs on corn tortillas" they brought some on a plate.

I know, I know, I'm ordering huevos rancheros at the wrong places. Where can I get the dish the way it's made in the Southwest?
