They are called "drowned eggs" because they are prepared with plenty of broth (caldillo) and / or sauce. The first time I heard someone say huevos ahogados I was just a little girl in my great grandmother’s house, trying to figure out why they were talking about eggs that had drowned. Being the nosey kid I was, I asked what they meant. My great grandmother was from Hidalgo. and was whipping up a batch of spicy tomato salsa to poach eggs. I watched as the salsa boiled in the pan as she carefully broke eggs into the hot mixture. She then explained to me those were the eggs drowning in the salsa. I’ve loved this dish from the first time she served me some…. till now. Make this simple dish for your family.
