Individual Skillet Huevos Rancheros

I have been super eager to try out my new Cost Plus World Market mini skillet.
 I know I have said that their store is amazing and you should check it out already but.... seriously you have to go!
While I have 2 other fun recipes that I am wanting to try with these lovelies I opted to making 
Huevos Rancheros. They were super easy to make another great thing about this recipe is that you can get creative with the ingredients you decide to use and while chose to make this for dinner you can make it for breakfast or brunch (best meal of the day)

Huevos Rancheros

I am all about easy meals and since it is still in the 100's here in AZ I don't really want to be in the kitchen for too long .

recipe huevos rancheros
cost plus world market
huevos rancheros

Prep Time: 15 Min
Cook Time: 15 Min 
Total Cook Time: 30 Min
Serves: 2
4-5 eggs
4 small corn tortillas 
8 oz can of organic pinto beans (drained )
1/2 diced onion 
1 cup of salsa 
1 diced tomato 
olive oil
salt and pepper 
shredded cheese 

1. Preheat oven 400F. In an oiled pan onions saute for about 5 minutes then add pinto beans and any other veggies and S&P until they are cooked through ( In this case I added my salsa and tomato ) 

2. Lightly oil the skillets wit olive oil ( also coat the edges ) place either 1 4x6 tortilla on the skillet or 2 smaller ones like I used overlapping them a little. Oil the tops of the tortillas. Divide your bean and onion mixture in half and add to the pans. Now with a spoon make 1-3 small round indents (this is where your eggs are going to go ) Crack your egg into the little indents. Sprinkle eggs with S&P and shredded cheese. 

3. Finally add skillets to the 400F preheated oven for about 12 Minutes. When you see the eggs whites turn white and the yolks are done to your likeness go ahead and take them out garnish with cilantro and your done! 

4. *Bonus Recipe* Chipotle Sour Cream

sour cream and siracha 

Combine 3 Table Spoons Sour Cream and 3 tea spoons Siracha. Mix
Add mixture to the inside corner of a small plastic bag cut tip off and zig zag through the top your dish ! 
(Don't be afraid to go fancy with your design) 

I can't wait to make this recipe again for friends and family. 
If you made this simple dish let me know how you enjoyed it ♥

Blue Lemon

I have always been a fan of clean eating. Needless to say when I saw Blue Lemon
I knew I had to try it! 

Christopher and I have been a handful of times and every time we try something new but we always get the 
sweet potato fries (so good )
I go for the salad and Chris goes for the sandwich or tacos so it evens out
On the Left: Grilled Steak Tacos
On the Right: Raspberry Chicken Salad 
 Drink: Frozen Lavender Lemonade 

The inside is so very simple chic they have these big blue coaches for seating with modern chandeliers hanging above. 

Blue Lemon is located on Baseline Road in the Gilbert Area 
If you are looking for a great clean eating menu 
this is for sure the place!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 
I'm doing a wine and craft night with some friends tonight..and I still don't know what to make !

Grey for Fall

grey jeans
 I have been on the search for the perfect pair of grey skinny jeans. When I saw that old navy had a some I went straight there. I tried these on and fell for them instantly. They were a perfect fit this petite lady loves old navy! I love how grey looks with fallish colors as in (mustard, maroon, and olive) 
I paired these amazing jeans with a lighter maroonish top from LOFT and my favorite faux leather vest from aeropostale. I was thinking about wear black booties but opted for these lovely ones from DSW (Qupid) the burgundy color is so eye catching .

Putting on cut off shorts and a loose tee well I'm sold but to give it that extra something I love adding something as simple as chucks and a black blazer.
