1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp chopped garlic

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Huevo Rancheros
1 corn tortilla (I used flour)
2 tbsp fat free refried beans
2 egg whites
1 tbsp low fat cheddar cheese
fresh cilantro

To make the sauce heat the oil in the nonstick skillet. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes. dd the garlic and cook for a minute longer. Add the tomatoes, coriander, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, and chipotle powder and cook for a minute longer. Carefully transfer the sauce to a food processor ad blend briefly. The finished sauce will be chunky. Stir in the cilantro.

To make the Huevos Rancheros warm the tortilla and refried beans and set aside. Coat a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add the egg whites and cook until nearly set. Turn the eggs and cook for a minute longer. Place the tortilla on a plate, top with beans and egg whites. Top with 1/2 cup of hot ranchero sauce. Garnish with cheese and cilantro.
