At Casa de Fox Valley Foodie, we eat lots of Mexican food. I may use my wife's Latino ancestry as the reason, but really, she is about as authentically Mexican as McDonald's breakfast burrito. Our penchant for cooking Mexican food has more to do with our equally shared love of bold flavors featured in dishes like Huevos Rancheros with Chorizo Sauce, rather than continuing any type of culinary heritage.
I'm drawn to Huevos Rancheros with Chorizo Sauce in particular because I have a mild obsession with egg dishes. I have eaten an egg sandwich every day for the past couple of weeks, so it was probably time I switched up the flavors a little bit. Huevos Rancheros with Chorizo Sauce features a sunny side up egg resting on a bed of refried beans and a crisp tortilla with a rich chorizo sauce ladled on top. There is not a bad bite on the plate!
You'll be juggling a couple pots and pans on the stove while cooking this dish, which is why I love the multiple pot sizes in my Calphalon Contemporary Cookware Set. However, I also keep separate nonstick pans on hand for cooking eggs. As a matter of fact, the nonstick pans are still Calphalon Contemporary as well. I am a big fan of their quality. The only brand I ever cooked with that I feel is higher quality is All Clad, but I hate the feel of their handles and the price tag is a little painful too.

We're on the same wavelength! I just posted an egg and sausage dish, but mine is Italian. 🙂 I have a special place in my heart for chorizo though, because I first tried it in Rhode Island when I met my husband. I've never tried huevos rancheros though. I need to make this happen!
