Huevos Rancheros




Huevos Rancheros

Huevos rancheros are over-easy eggs on top of lightly fried corn tortillas and topped with chunky salsa made with green chiles, tomato, and onion. It is a very popular Mexican dish and you will find it on just about any breakfast menu at Mexican food restaurants.


3 small tomatoes, finely chopped

1/2 onion, finely chopped                                                                              

handful of fresh jalapeno, finely chopped  (I used roasted green peppers)

1/2 cup water

corn tortillas ( 2 per serving)

eggs (2 per serving)

cooking oil

salt and pepper to taste

– In a medium pan, heat about 1 tsp. of cooking oil and sauté chiles, tomato, and onions. Cook until vegetables are soft. Add 1/2 cup water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.

– In the same pan, add 1/2 tsp of cooking oil and lightly fry corn tortillas on both sides. Place them on dry paper towels to remove excess oil before plating.

– Fry eggs according to your preference, either over-easy or over-medium.

– Top with salsa and serve.

– Adjust seasonings according to taste

* You can use a fork to eat it or roll each portion like a taco and take a big bite! 🙂 Enjoy.
