Huevos Rancheros with Roasted Salsa Verde

Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends!

We’re celebrating with a big batch of huevos rancheros topped with a favorite recipe from the archives: Roasted Salsa Verde.  The crispy, crunchy tortillas topped with a few runny eggs go perfectly with a generous spoonful of green tomatillo salsa.  Eat it for breakfast if you like, or make it tonight and call it dinner; we won’t judge.

Charring the tomatillos, onions, and chilis in a dry skillet when making the salsa gives it the most delicious smoky flavor.  You’ll be licking it off your plate for sure. 

Avocado, feta cheese, tomatillos, limes, cilantro, and chilis… so many favorites in one recipe.
