Huevos Rancheros

Mexican Style Sunnyside-Up Eggs and Salsa

When you need a hearty breakfast, you can’t beat authentic huevos rancheros, a dish prepared with two sunnyside-up eggs on fried tortillas covered in spicy tomato salsa with refried beans on the side. This dish is served throughout Mexico, and for good reason. It’s delicious! The name huevos rancheros translate as “rancher’s eggs.” When preparing, keep it simple and traditional. You don’t need to fancy-it-up with toppings like sour cream, chopped tomatoes, green onions, or avocado. You can if you want, but I might get a little bent out of shape. Each bite should be a balance of rich salsa, egg, and corn tortilla. The other stuff just gets in the way.

How to Make

Gather Your Ingredients

You will need:

  • 4 eggs

  • 3 Roma (plum) tomatoes

  • 1 or 2 serrano chiles

  • 1/4 white onion

  • a clove of garlic

  • 1/2 tsp. thyme

In Mexico, the salsa is made very hot. This recipe calls for 1 serrano chile which makes a milder salsa. Add 1 or 2 more chiles if you want it hot. You probably already have all the ingredients necessary in your pantry.
