What to Eat Wednesday: South of the Border

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Yum! Huevos Rancheros that won't kill your meal planLove Mexican food, but not the high amounts of starch, fat and calories you have to deal with when you eat it? Then you’ll love this better-for-you recipe I discovered from the American Diabetes Association.

Huevos Rancheros

Ingredients

4 corn tortillas

1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, drained

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 large eggs

1 ounce shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese or reduced-fat feta cheese

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Place tortillas on baking sheet and bake 3 minutes on each side.
  • Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, cumin, cayenne, and salt in a medium nonstick skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, covered, 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Break one egg into a measuring cup. Carefully slide egg onto the tomato mixture. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Simmer gently over medium heat, covered, 2 ½ to 3 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks just begin to thicken slightly.*
  • Place a tortilla on each of four dinner plates. Top with the tomato mixture and eggs. Sprinkle with cheese and cilantro.
