365 Project #261 Huevos Rancheros

When we decide we'd like a special treat we go to our current favorite Mexican restaurant, El Bracero in Kingsland, TX and order Huevos Rancheros. We've ordered it in many restaurants, but, being cooks we had some definite ideas as to what we consider perfect.

We had a 'day of rest' after a 2-gig day yesterday and Don had shopped for the ingredients for what we consider the best version we've cooked yet. I made Perfect Bacon and then he fried parboiled potatoes with no seasoning and set them aside as a side-dish. 

He rough-chopped a large sweet onion, red bell pepper, 3 jalapeƱos, garlic and 3 Roma tomatoes. I stir-fried the red pepper, jalapeƱos, onion,  and garlic just until they were cooked but still sweet and crunchy and then added the tomatoes and cooked until they started to release their juices but still maintained their shape. He fried the eggs in bacon grease to our desired doneness. 

Fried eggs were laid on the plate first with veggies on top, potatoes and bacon on the side. We are happy campers.
