    Spicy huevos rancheros

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1 tbsp sunflower oil
    200g pack romano peppers, halved and thinly sliced
    28g pack fresh coriander, leaves separated, stalks finely chopped
    2 tsp ground cumin
    400g can cherry tomatoes
    400g can mixed bean salad, drained
    3 tsp Tabasco Sriracha Sauce
    4 large British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    100g feta cheese
    4 malted rye tortilla wraps, toasted


    1. Heat the oil in a wide frying pan over a medium-high heat. Soften the peppers for 5 minutes. Stir in the coriander stalks, sizzle for a few seconds, then add the cumin. After 1 minute, add the tomatoes, beans, 1 tsp sriracha and 50ml water. Season, partially cover, and bubble for 10 minutes, until the sauce is rich and the peppers soft.

    2. Chop ½ the coriander leaves and fold in. Make 4 wells in the frying pan and crack an egg into each one. Season the eggs, then cover and cook at a gentle simmer for 5-7 minutes until the whites are just set and the yolks soft.

    3. Scatter with the feta, zig-zag the remaining 2 tsp sriracha over the top, then sprinkle with the remaining coriander leaves. Serve with the toasted tortillas.

    Cook’s tip

    To toast your tortillas without having to use another pan, simply fold in half and then again. Put in the toaster and they’ll come out crisp on the outside and warm and soft in the middle.
