If you have never tried huevos rancheros, you’re in for a treat! This dish is spicy and rich and can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
What is huevos rancheros?
This is a dish with baked or poached eggs served on a bed of refried beans on a tortilla. Smothered in ranchero sauce and topped with cheese, it’s rich and delicious!
What is ranchero sauce made of?
Ranchero sauce is a tomato based sauce spiced with peppers. To substitute you can use red enchilada sauce (this is a great recipe!) or red chili sauce.
No time to make your own sauce? Use storebought that’s what I did. No judgment!!!
Grocery List for Easy Huevos Rancheros Recipe
- Eggs from Egglands Best
- corn tortillas
- refried beans or black beans
- red enchilada or red chili sauce (canned works just fine!)
- cheddar, cojita or pepper jack cheese
I love making this in a cast iron skillet. It’s pretty enough to go right from the oven to the table for brunch. If you’re serving a large crowd, use your favorite casserole dish and double the ingredients.
