Huevos Divorciados – Mexican Divorced Eggs

Huevos divorciados, or “divorced eggs,” is a Mexican breakfast featuring two fried eggs separated by a column of chilaquiles (although sometimes, refried beans with tortilla chips are substituted) or served on a crisp fried tortilla. Typically, one egg is covered in salsa roja or salsa asada, while the other is covered in salsa verde, giving them distinct and complementary flavours.

Ingredients
For salsa asada
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cored
  • 1 large shallot, peeled
  • 1 serrano chilli, stemmed
  • ¼ cup chicken broth or stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
For salsa verde
  • 5 tomatillos, husked and rinsed (substitute with green tomatoes)
  • 1 chilli, halved (Anaheim, if available)
  • ½ small onion
  • 1 clove garlic, unpeeled
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
For huevos rancheros
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 (12 - 15 cm) corn tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • salt
Instructions
For the salsa asada
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes, shallots and chilli to the dry skillet and char on all sides, turning occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Transfer the charred ingredients to a blender, add the broth and process until smooth.
  3. Return the salsa to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the salsa turns a bright red colour, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
For the salsa verde
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatillos, chilli, onion and garlic to the dry skillet and char on all sides, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes.
  2. Peel the garlic. Transfer the charred ingredients to a blender and process until smooth.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
For the Huevos Rancheros
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the tortillas, 1 at a time, and cook until crisp-tender, 30 seconds per side.
  3. Remove the tortillas to a piece of aluminum foil and wrap tightly to keep warm.
To assemble
  1. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same skillet and fry the eggs until just set, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
  2. Unwrap the tortillas and arrange them flat on 2 serving plates (1 tortilla per plate). Top each tortilla with 2 fried eggs and spoon about ⅓ cup warm salsa asada over 1 egg and another ⅓ cup salsa verde over the other egg. Serve immediately.
