Huevos Rancheros Salad

This is one of my go-to meals when I want to switch up the 'what's for lunch' slump. I always love a good salad, but sometimes there's just so much lettuce...and not enough flavor. Not here. If you like Mexican food, you will love this meal. And it really is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 
 I love using Chipotle chiles in Adobo. They come in a little can and are great for so many recipes. Here, they give my canned black beans that extra punch they need, making the beans taste smokey, like they'd been cooking all day.
 What can't you do with a runny egg??
 I like to make mine overeasy, that way the whites are for sure cooked and definitely not goopy.
You don't even need dressing on this salad because the yolk, salsa and beans create an amazing sauce. This meal is so delicious and truly good for you. You could easily double it to make a hearty dinner, or if you just aren't feeling the whole salad thing, swap the lettuce for a warm corn tortilla or two. YUM!

Huevos Rancheros Salad
1 egg
Handfull of your lettuce of choice
A few small tomatoes, chopped
1/4 C canned Black Beans, drained
1 tsp. of the sauce from a can of Chipotle Chiles in Adobo
a sprinkle of Mexican cheese
1/2 a ripe avocado
a few leaves of cilantro, torn
salt and pepper

Heat a small non stick skillet over low heat. Cook your egg in a dab of butter to your desired doneness. Salt and pepper to taste.
In another small skillet, or in a microwave safe bowl, combine the beans and chipotle chile in adobo sauce. Heat until warm, but not boiling.
In a salad bowl or plate, layer the lettuce, tomato, warm beans and cheese.
Top with your salsa of choice, the cooked egg and avocado.

So quick, easy and delicious!
