  • Mix the beans with the salsa. Heat in a pan or in the microwave oven until warm. While beans and salsa are heating, cook the eggs in your favorite way—poached, basted or fried.
  • Distribute the salsa-bean mixture onto four plates and place an egg on top of each portion. Immediately sprinkle with the crumbled cheese.
  • Serve the huevos rancheros topped with the cilantro, olives and two slices of avocado per portion.

* The 13 grams of carbohydrate in this recipe is partially from the 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) of beans per serving, which provides 3 grams of healthful carbohydrate. If you can handle the carbs, it may be well worth the texture, flavor and added antioxidants and fiber. Otherwise, simply eliminate the beans from the recipe.

1¼ medium-fat meat, 3 fat, 1½ vegetables
