- To make salsa, stir together tomato, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro, and pinch of salt in small bowl.
- Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs into skillet, cover, and cook until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken, but are not hard, 3–4 minutes.
- Place 1 tortilla on each of 2 plates and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place 1 egg in center of each tortilla. Spoon half of salsa over each egg. Sprinkle eggs with remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges.
- Per serving (1 huevo ranchero)
For a colorful and delicious accompaniment, serve the eggs with a bowl of sliced mango and papaya tossed with lime juice and sprinkled with a pinch of cayenne.
