Easy Cheesy Huevos Rancheros
Have you tried the latest? Cooking in a mug? CorningWare Meal Mugs make memorable meals and are as easy as can be. Our daughter has done cakes in small mugs in the microwave but these Meal Mugs are lovely and big and definitely hold an entire meal, like this Easy Cheesy Huevos Rancheros. Kids will love these as well as parents cooking in them. Meal Mugs offer easy convenience and little clean up as they are made of a durable stoneware and go from freezer to pre-heated oven (they need even heating), refrigerator to microwave and are easily cleaned in the dishwasher. Got to love that simplicity!!
After I received four gorgeous mugs from CorningWare I got busy in making these Easy Cheesy Huevos Rancheros. You just need traditional ingredients and a spectacular meal is yours in no time at all!! Let’s dig into this recipe!!
I love Huevos Rancheros and everytime we are in Mexico I order it if possible. Some of the resorts offer a new dish each day. Something creatively arranged by the chef, mmm, heavenly. Have you had Huevos Rancheros before? It is a popular Mexican dish consisting of eggs, tortillas and a spicy tomato sauce. Sometimes other ingredients are added in to what is fresh on hand or an imaginative addition. For us we used the traditional refried beans, chorizo and lots of cheese to make an amazing meal in a mug!!
This dish can be cooked either in the oven or the microwave with similar delicious results. The non-porous surface of the Meal Mugs do not absorb food, odours, flavours or stains. So you can make these and then a cake right after!! For the microwave a patented vented lid comes with the mug to prevent splashing and keeps in the steam. The lids are not for the oven and are top-rack dishwasher safe.
