Hangover Huevos Rancheros

This started out as a conversation about New Year`s Day food traditions.  My husband asked me if we had any, and I said it's really about hangover food, isn't it ? When I think about what I want after over indulging,  I think greasy or spicy. When I proposed these options to my spouse,  he chose spicy, and here we are.

I started soaking the beans before we left for the evening festivities.  When we arrived home in the wee small hours, I put them in the crock pot with some spices, and set it to low. We woke up to some completely cooked, spicy beans, which we topped with cheese, sour cream, salsa and over easy eggs. Oh, on top of tortillas as well, in case you are in no shape to use utensils.

Hanogover Huevos Rancheros
1 pound dried pinto beans
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Presoak beans overnight, rinsing, then covering with water, about 2 inches over the top of the beans. Soak 6-8 hours. Roughly 8-10 hours before you will be ready to eat,  rinse beans and place in crockpot. Add spices, and cover with water, about 8 cups. Turn on low, and let cook until beans are tender.  Turn off the crockcrock, and mash with a potato masher.

To assemble:
6-8 flour tortillas
6 eggs
Sour Cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
When ready to eat, place tortillas between two paper plates, and heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Cook eggs to your liking, and serve with salsa, sour cream and cheese.
