Salsa Ranchera

  5. Season with salt to taste and the salsa is ready.

Bacon and Egg preparation

  1. To begin with the recipe, put the bacon in a non-stick frying pan in a single layer. Top with another heavy pan or frying pan that fits snugly into the pan on top of the bacon. If it’s not very heavy, top with another pan, or anything heatproof and weighty.
  2. Fry on a medium-low heat for 10-15 mins until golden and super-crispy. Check the bacon halfway through cooking – increase the heat slightly if there’s lots of liquid in the pan, and flip the bacon over. Keep cooking until the bacon is uniformly golden and crisp.
  3. Drain on kitchen paper to soak the excess grease.
  4. To prepare scrambled eggs, place a skillet on the gas stove on medium low flame and add butter to the skillet. Allow the oil to heat up for about 2 min. Then turn the pan to low flame. Beat the eggs with water vigorously until it becomes smooth. Let the water evaporate and the eggs to turn out fluffy without adding any milk.
  5. Now add the beaten eggs to the skillet, and gently move the eggs around the pan with a spatula. When the eggs start to firm up, turn off the heat, and leave them in the skillet to keep warm until you are ready to serve.
  6. To serve the dish, place chorizo and add a spoonful of scrambled eggs on a plate. Then add salsa ranchera sauce and dip 2-3 corn tortilla chips in the sauce. Enjoy the dish hot and fresh.
