Easy huevos rancheros

    20 min

    This is an easy to make Mexican-style breakfast or brunch dish of baked eggs. It's not exactly the same as the real thing but it's still delicious and it will definitely satisfy your hunger until lunch. Try crumbled Mexican cojita cheese instead of Cheddar if you like.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 soft plain tortillas
    • 225g spicy refried beans
    • 1 teaspoon butter
    • 4 eggs
    • 140g grated Cheddar cheese
    • 8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
    • 120g salsa

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Heat oil in a small pan over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas one at a time until firm, but not crisp. Set on kitchen paper to dry.
    2. Meanwhile, combine the refried beans and butter in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook in the microwave until heated through. When tortillas are done, fry eggs in the pan until yolks are cooked but still runny. Add more oil if the tortillas have absorbed it all.
    3. Place tortillas onto plates; spread a layer of beans on them. Top with grated cheese, a fried egg, bacon pieces and salsa.

    I am mexican and these are not at authentic at all, however they are nice. But salsa is never optional, is the main ingredient.  -  25 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just wanted to put this bit of info out there for everyone, anything with Cheddar cheese is not authentically Mexican. If you want to reduce the fat in this dish you can just put a little bit of butter in a pan, then slightly toast the tortillas in the pan. It comes out just as good with less fat. Just a suggestion.  -  24 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I don't know whether this is authentic or not; all I do know is that this breakfast was really good! I added green onion, a little enchilada sauce and some shredded pepper jack cheese. Great Giamom!  -  27 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
