Making Passover a little zestier. OLE!!!


 

Who's to say that passover eats have to feel super jew-y? I mean, a Mexican flare sounds like a fantastic approach to the holiday to me.

 

One day, I was thinking about tacos. I'm sure it was a deeper thought but for the sake of painting a picture, picture a cartoonish thought cloud over my head with a taco emoji in it. That was me. Somehow I got to thinking about crunchy versus soft tacos. I always go the soft route. Simply put, I like the mouth feel better. Which led me to think that I think the last crunchy taco I had was in college. So weird. It wasn't a conscious decision, it just happened. I started thinking about the scenario where I would want a crunchy taco and really couldn't land on one. UNTIL PASSOVER! I could replace the crunchy taco entirely with matzoh. The wheels started turning and huevos rancheros came to mind—correction, "huevos mat'cheros"! The rest is history!

1. TO PREP YOUR INGREDIENTS. preheat your oven to 350°.

Line your baking sheet with your silpat.

Season your chicken breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder and red pepper flakes.

Place your seasoned chicken on your lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or till your chicken is 155° (your chicken's temperature will keep rising after you take it out of the oven to the desired temperature of 165°)

Transfer your chicken to your cutting board and use your two forks to pull your chicken apart until it's all shredded.

While it's cooking, pour your chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, 1/3 of your jalapeño slices, juice from 1/3 of your lime and chopped garlic into your saucepan and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.

In your frying pan, combine your sliced onions and red wine. 

Use your wooden spoon to occasionally move them around as they cook down until softened—about 3 minutes.

Set your red wine onions aside and clean out your frying pan.

Coat your frying pan with butter. 

Fry your four eggs with salt and pepper over medium heat.

Scoop your tomato mixture onto your matzoh.

Scoop on your black beans.

Add on your shredded chicken.

Place your fried eggs on top.

Place your red wine onions on top of your fried eggs placing them between the yolks.

Place about 10 cilantro leaves on top of your red wine onions.
