PREPARATION

To Make the Huevos Rancheros
1. For Sunny Fried Eggs: Divide the butter between 2 frying pans large enough to hold 6 eggs each. Set over medium heat. When the butter melts and bubbles, gently crack the eggs, and drop into the pans without breaking the yolks. Drizzle 1 tablespoon water all around the outside edge of the eggs in each pan. Cover the pans, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are firm, about 3 minutes.
2. To assemble the huevos rancheros, place 1 fried egg on a tortilla. Top with Ranchero Sauce and shredded cheese. Fold and serve.
To Make the Ranchero Sauce
1. In a food processor or using a chef's knife, coarsely chop the chili pepper, onion, garlic, and tomatoes. Transfer to a medium-size non-reactive skillet. Add the oregano, chili powder, salt, and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are soft and the onions are translucent, 12 to 15 minutes.
2. Divide the sauce in half. Purée one half in a food processor, food mill, or mortar. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining sauce. Serve warm, or cover, refrigerate, and use within 10 days.
