I Love Juevos Rancheros... "Juevos Tolucanos"
Some weeks back I asked for help using up some masa harina. Since then I've been experimenting and have developed what I think is an interesting menu item for you to try.... When I get up in the morning I often get a craving for Juevos Rancheros but just as often don't have any tortillas on hand.
This morning I grated up a medium potato, mixed it with about 1/2 tsp. each of salt, pepper and onion powder, 1 tsp. cumin and about 2-3 TBS masa horina. I heated some oil in my cast iron skillet and spred the mix to about a 9" flattened circle. Once crisped on both sides, I assembled the dish as I would the "Rancharos" with egg, salsa, cheese and any other option that might strike your fancy.
I'm going to call this "Juevos Tolucanos" after the region I've learned to be the hub of native potato production in Mexico.
What do you think?
