Ranchero Sauce for Huevos Rancheros

Posted on March 23, 2014 at 8:25 PM

This morning I got a late start to the day and decided to spend my afternoon creating my ideal huevos rancheros. This sauce is made from a few simple ingredients and produce you may already have in the house. On a spicy scale of 1-10 this sauce ranks a 7 or so. If you like a little less heat, leave out half of the jalapenos.
