2 medium roma tomatoes
2 jalapeños
1 tbsp – salt
1/4 cup – water
1 packaged Queso Fresco Ranchero Cacique
4 eggs
1 cup of your favorite Vallarta Salsa


1. Begin by roasting your jalapeños and tomatoes until they are slightly charred and softened.

2. Once roasted, transfer the jalapeños and tomatoes to a small molcajete. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and a splash of water to the molcajete.

3. Gently mash the ingredients in the molcajete until they are well combined, creating a flavorful salsa.

4. Cut the queso fresco into small strips or cubes.

5. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. There’s no need to add oil.

6. Place the queso fresco strips in the hot pan and cook them until they turn a beautiful golden color, flipping as needed. This will create a crispy exterior and a gooey interior.

7. In a separate pan, fry your eggs to your desired level of doneness.

8. To assemble your dish, place the queso fresco strips on a plate. Spoon the roasted jalapeño and tomato salsa over the queso fresco.

9. Add your fried eggs on top of the salsa.

10. Optionally, garnish with your favorite Vallarta Salsa for an extra burst of flavor.

Enjoy your delicious meal!
