You may have noticed from my Instagram feed that I love Mexican food. Huevos rancheros is one of my favorite dishes, but it’s rare that we make it out to breakfast. Sometimes I get lucky and find it on the menu for lunch also or weekend brunch. With only a few ingredients, it’s pretty easy to make huevos rancheros at home. I actually like making it at home so I can guarantee the yolk of my egg is fully cooked. Cutting into an egg at a restaurant can be stressful if you’re worried about gooey yolk flowing all over your delicious breakfast. Of course if you like gooey yolk, feel free to make this dish with a sunny side up egg.
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup black beans
- pinch cumin
- pinch chili powder
- pinch garlic powder
- pinch salt
- 1 corn tortilla
- 1 ounce Mexican crumbling cheese
- 2 tbs tomatillo salsa (or enchilada sauce)
- Cook egg as desired - sunny side up, over easy, fried, or scrambled (I did over medium and broke the yolk to make sure it was fully cooked)
- Mix beans, spices, and salt
- Push egg aside in pan and cover with tortilla
- Heat beans over medium heat for 1-2 minutes (on the other side of the pan)
- Lay warm tortilla on plate, top with egg, beans, cheese, and sauce
What kind of eggs do you prefer in huevos rancheros?
