Huevos Rancheros

The best Mexican breakfast ever!

25 minutes prep time | Serves 6

What You Need
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 jalapeno chiles, seeded and minced

  • 1-1/2 c tomatoes, chopped, with their juice

  • 2 tsp chili powder

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 6 whole-grain tortillas

  • 1 can (15 oz) refried beans

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil or cooking spray

  • 6 large eggs

  • Shredded Monterey Jack cheese, optional

  1. To make the sauce: Heat oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add jalapeno chiles, tomatoes with juice, and chili powder. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes or until tomatoes soften. Add salt and pepper to taste and remove from heat. Stir in cilantro. Set aside.

  1. Warm tortillas in oven on a very low temperature so that they’re warm all the way through but still soft.

  2. Warm refried beans in a small pan over medium-low heat.

  3. Coat a large skillet with a small amount of oil or cooking spray.

  4. Fry eggs without flipping for about 1 minute, or until they begin to set. Cover to finish cooking, about 1 to 2 minutes.

To serve, place a warm tortilla on each plate. Spread with warm refried beans. Place an egg on top of tortilla and top with the warm tomato sauce. Add shredded cheese, if desired.
