Back in the 1970's and 80's eggs got a really bad rap - and not for very substantial reasons. Much of what happened in the late 1960's that laid the groundwork for the egg's poor reputation wasn't based on sound science, but over the last 30 years research has shown that for most people, dietary eggs and cholesterol is not a problem. The truth is that the amount of trans fat and saturated fat in your diet has much more impact on your cholesterol levels - and therefore your risk of heart disease - than the amount of cholesterol you eat. Eggs are good for you!
There are hundreds of variations on Huevos Rancheros, and this one is based on the dish my friend Anita Corey used to serve in her restaurant. It is great topped with salsa. If you are going to choose a bottled salsa, look for one with less salt. The sodium content of the national brands like Old El Paso and Pace is really high. Often the smaller, local brands are better tasting and low in sodium.
For example, I used Old San Antonio Tomatillo Salsa on my Huevos Rancheros. It's delicious and has only 100 milligrams of sodium per 2 tablespoon serving.
