Hueros Rancheros- Baby Style!


This is one of my favourite breakfasts and I have it regularly so wanted to find a way to adapt it to suit The Lambs dietary needs.

The recipe below is my adapted recipe, suitable for babies. I have also noted the original recipe, incase you also want to try that version for yourself- both are yummy!
(Tip- the original is a fantastic hangover cure! ;))

Serves 2 adults and 1 little person and costs around Β£1 per serving:

1 red pepper
1 medium courgette
1 small white onion
1 clove of garlic
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2 and a 1/2 wraps
2 handfuls of grated cheese
Dash of sunflower oil
2 or 3 eggs (3 if you want an egg for your little one), preferably free range
(FOR THE ADULT ONLY VERSION: tsp chilli powder, tsp Spanish paprika, 1/2 tsp chilli flakes, pinch of salt and pepper)

You will also need a frying pan with a lid. Failing that another frying pan to place on top or a plate to cover- if you use a plate be warned, it will be hot so use a tea towel to remove.

1. Finely chop the garlic clove and onion. Chop the pepper and courgette into 1cm cube sized pieces.
2. Heat a frying pan over low to medium heat, add the sunflower oil and the garlic and onion. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
3. Add the peppers and courgettes and cook for a further 2-3 mins, until the veg has softened slightly and turned a little golden.
(ADULT ONLY VERSION: Add tsp of chilli powder, a tsp of Spanish paprika and 1/2 tsp of chilli flake- omit the chilli flakes if you want a milder meal- add a pinch of salt and pepper and stir)
4. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes and stir, turn the heat up to medium and cook until the sauce reduces to a “stew like” consistency, around 3-4 mins.


5. Make small wells in the sauce and crack your eggs into it. Put the lid on the pan and leave to cook the eggs to your preference. (If you’re doing an egg for your little one, make sure you cook it until the yoke is cooked all the way through)
6. Place the vegetable stew on a tortilla with the egg on top and finish with a sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese!

There are two ways you can serve this to baby; the first option is to cut the wrap in half, place the vegetable stew mix on one side and sprinkle some cheese on top, then fold the other side over and slice the wrap into manageable strips.


The second, my favourite, is to cut the half a wrap in half again and make tiny burritos!


If your serving with an egg, you can cut the egg up and add to the mix inside the wrap or cut up and serve on the side. I omit the egg as The Lamb doesn’t like the texture of cooked egg white yet, so only likes egg in a scrambled form!

Be warned: this is pretty messy!

But it’s worth it!
