His and Hers Huevos Rancheros

Hi lovely friends 😀 Good morning! Hope your day is going well so far.

After a loooooong day of traveling, we made it into Tucson last night, with the fam waiting for us.


(my bro tore his medial meniscus! poor buddy)

I bet you can guess who was happiest to see the Pilot…


Bella went INSANE. Her tail was shaking her entire body!

Everyone came over to our temp townhouse, where my madre and nana had tons of food and goodies waiting:food

(lots of shrimp- they know us well)

+ fresh flowers <3


It was pretty much the best thing we could have come home to.

I can’t even say how lovely it felt to sleep in a REAL bed after a week of different hotels, and to make a real, homemade breakfast this morning.

His and Hers Huevos Rancheros

All ya need:


-Sea salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, cayenne

-1/2 large onion, diced

-can of each of the following: diced tomatoes, black beans and green chiles; all drained extremely well

1. With a little organic butter, in a small saucepan, cook the onion and green chiles  on medium heat. Season well with sea salt, pepper, 1/8-1/4 t cayenne, 1/4 t garlic powder, 1/2 t cumin, and add in the black beans and *most* of the tomatoes.


2. Continue to cook on medium heat while you prepare the eggs.


3. Place some of the bean creation onto a plate and plop said eggs on top.

The Pilot enjoyed his with 2 eggs over easy, and two tortillas:

(I’m sure he would have loved cheese, too, but we haven’t been to the store yet)

I enjoyed my bfast with 1 egg, brown rice toast, green tea and a simple salad with dressing and ground flax

Such a hearty, flavorful bfast and it took about 15 minutes to put together!

Feel free to get creative with this one, too- crumbled tortilla chips, avocado or guacamole, fresh cilantro, bell pepper, and cheese would all be lovely on top of the bean mixture.

Let me know if ya try it 😀


We’re off to walk Bella and look at a few houses before it’s time for me to get to work.

Have a fantastic day and I’ll see ya later this afternoon!

Something to think:

    I bet the family was so happy to the Pilot again, Bella is so cute, I can only image what she might have been thinking 😉

    Congrats on being home! I’m a few weeks new to your blog and love it! I have a question, though… I can’t open the raw food, workout gear or yoga under “reviews.” The drop down on “giveaways” gets in the way. Is it my computer (MacBook?)?

    • Fitnessista on March 23, 2011 at 9:18 pm

      welcome to the little blog 🙂 it’s a prob with my drop down menu- that will all be fixed after a blog makeover that’s underway. sorry for the inconvenience!

    That breakfast looks incredible! My boyfriend is Cuban and I think making this for him is a MUST!

    I must admit I am not the biggest poodle fan but your Bella is pretty freakin adorable! I’m lovin the shaggy hair!

    • Fitnessista on March 23, 2011 at 9:17 pm

      she’s actually a maltipoo, but very different from other poodles ive met 😉

  7. courtney @ cupcakedynamite on March 23, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    spicy, mexican-like food in the morning is something I could get used to! 😉 ps, Bella looks SOO different with her long hair!!

    Your Momma ( I assume – holding Bella in the picture) – what a cute lady!!

    my first thought when I looked at your breakfast was MAN that needs some cilantro. great minds think alike!

    I’m so happy the pilot is finally home. You two look beaming in all of your photographs together and seem like such a lovely couple! So my question for you lovebirds is: Although you obviously totally adore one another, does your spouse have any *annoying* habits that maybe drove you a little crazy at first?

    bella is really beautiful 🙂
