Huevos Rancheros

aftertastesherry | Oct 31, 2007 09:11 AM

I just recently developed a strangely huge obsession with huevos rancheros. I've had it at two different restaurants now, but I have a feeling they weren't really authentic, even though they were amazingly delicious. Does anyone know what "traditional" huevos rancheros consists of?
One place I went to had a huge pile of tortilla chips covered in a plain egg omelette topped with beans, salsa, chili sauce, cheese, and sour cream. The other restaurant I went to had one large, crisp tortilla at the bottom of a cast iron dish and whisked some eggs, poured it on top of the tortilla, added beans, cheese, and salsa, broiled it and then topped it off with a lime wedge and some pickled red onions (a particularly lovely, unique touch).
So any recipe suggestions? I was thinking of winging one myself, but I'm curious as to what would constitute an authentic rendition of huevos rancheros.
