This morning’s breakfast, thought we’d pass it on.
Spray a small skillet with cooking spray (or use a small amount of vegetable oil or butter) and warm up the skillet. Heat a corn tortilla (corn tortilla, not wheat, to be authentic, and, if you will, gluten free) about 30 seconds on each side, until it’s just starting to turn brown. Set aside.
Fry an egg in the same skillet until the whites are set and the yolk is (if you care for it) still a little runny. During the last little bit of cooking, either heat some ranchero sauce (enchilada sauce works fine, salsa works fine), or just pour it in with the egg.
Assemble on the serving plate the tortilla topped with the egg and the sauce.

Right up front we need to clarify — there are two separate varieties of this product, with nearly identical packaging. The one pictured at left is gluten free pasta with dairy free cheeze. I’d have to classify it as a weak product, but it’s not Amy’s fault directly. The dairy free not-cheese is a tough sell for me. You get there, and you realize there’s just not really any There there. B-.
On the other hand, the dairy cheese, gluten free pasta version is fine. It tastes about like you’d expect from frozen mac and cheese. Not bad at all. The price is high, due to the high quality of the ingredients Amys is known for across all their products. It is what it is; there’s no vegetables, so you’ll need to add a side dish. Served that way, a definite B+.
Do be sure when you pick some up, if you are OK with consuming dairy, to read the top of the package carefully if you’re wanting the dairy version.
