Did you hear the news? Our beloved ice cream brand will finally be returning to stores today across Texas! Having been without my favorite Homemade Vanilla for this entire pregnancy, I am one happy six-month pregnant Mama! You may not fully understand the magnitude of this problem if you’re not a Texan. We take our ice cream, our Tex-Mex, and our state pride seriously!
This past spring we visited a small town in the Texas Hill country to attend the Bluebonnet Festival. (Bluebonnets are the Texas State Flower). It was SO beautiful to see them sprawling across the fields as we drove through the roadside.
After we took pictures of the girls in the bluebonnets and shopped at the festival, we decided to stop in town for brunch. James had the most delicious Huevos Rancheros and I knew I needed to recreate them for him at home.
When I found these Lone Star Eggs at Walmart I decided it was only fitting to use them for this recipe. Lone Star Eggs are “fresh off the ranch” and laid by Texans, for Texans. I told you, Texas pride. It’s real. And these Huevos Rancheros are real delicious. Packed with protein and full of flavor this recipe is perfect for breakfast or brinner!
We’ve been on a flour tortilla kick since I used them in my Green Chile Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas, but you could certainly use corn tortillas if you prefer. Serve them up with homemade queso, homemade restaurant style salsa, slices of avocado, or sour cream!
