Huevos rancheros are also known as Mexican fried eggs. Freeze any remaining tortillas - they can be used for pizza bases.
- To prepare the sauce, heat a little oil in a heavy saucepan and saute the onion and garlic until soft. Drain the tomatoes well and chop. Add to the onion together with the chilli. Simmer until thick.
- Heat a little more oil in a frying pan. Fry the tortillas until just beginning to crisp. Drain on a paper towel and keep warm. Add a little more oil and fry the eggs until just cooked.
- Place a tortilla on each plate, top with the eggs and the sauce. Garnish with the avocado, black pepper and basil leaves.
