How To Prepare Huevos Ahogados

A food processor, a good, reliable skillet, a slotted spoon & a rubber spatula are all the equipment that will be needed in order to prepare Huevos Ahogados. However, if you have several ramekins, one egg may be cracked into each then added to the salsa for cooking to keep them contained. Accompany with a simple cheese quesadilla or Homemade Corn Tortillas that are wonderful with the salsa mixture.
