Add the tomatoes(undrained), chili peppers, garlic, and chili powder. Bring to a slow boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 5 to 10 minutes or until the rancheros sauce has thickened slightly.
Meanwhile, place tortillas on a baking sheet and brush lightly with oil. Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees or till lightly crisp. One at a time, break an egg into a measuring cup and carefully slide the egg into the simmering sauce. Repeat with remaining eggs or huevos. Cover and simmer slowly for 3 to 5 minutes or till the whites have set and the egg yokes begin to thicken but are not hard.
Place each flour tortilla on a plate, top with 2 eggs, spoon rancheros sauce over top of eggs and sprinkle with cheese. Serve these huevos rancheros with a Mexican hot pepper sauce or salsa.
