Jean Pope shared her version of huevos rancheros on Cooking Channel's Facebook wall. It has everything you'd expect from the classic Mexican breakfast dish—a corn tortilla, refried beans, a fried egg on top—but she pushes the flavor envelope with a couple surprise ingredients.

Her secret is Asian-style ground chili paste, which gives bright heat and intensity to the dish—"It lends a sharp, moderately spicy bite to whatever it accompanies," she says—and fish sauce in the salsa.

Jean's recipe is her attempt to recreate a breakfast she's never forgotten in Tulum, Mexico; the fish sauce "was the best way to replicate the savory notes of the tomato sauté." We salute you, Jean!

See the recipe on her blog. And check out more Mexican breakfast recipes on Cooking Channel.
