Huevos Rancheros

Huevos rancheros is a popular breakfast dish consisting of eggs served in the style of the traditional large mid-morning fare on rural Mexican farms.

The basic dish consists of fried eggs served upon lightly fried corn tortillas topped with a tomato-chilli sauce. Refried beans, Mexican-style rice, slices of avocado, or guacamole are common accompaniments.

Variations

As the popularity of the dish spread beyond Mexico, variations using wheat flour tortillas instead of corn and pureed chili or enchilada sauce instead of tomato-chilli salsa have appeared. Non-Mexican additions such as cheese, sour cream, and lettuce also have become common beyond the dish’s native range.

Huevos Divorciados, divorced eggs, are simply two eggs served in the usual style, but with a different sauce for each, usually a red and a green chilli salsa.

Somewhat similar dishes are Huevos Motuleños of Yucatan and New Mexican Enchiladas Montadas.

Ingredients
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 medium jalapeño pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic ( 1 chopped, 1 crushed )
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 x 440 g can black beans, drained and rinsed (see black bean glossary entry for more information)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 x 15 cm corn tortillas, warmed
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh coriander
Instructions
  1. Prepare the salsa: - Set a grater in a large bowl; grate the tomatoes and onion into the bowl. Add the jalapeño, chopped garlic, Tabasco sauce, cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Heat a medium skillet over low heat and add 2 teaspoons olive oil. Fry the salsa in the oil until it thickens slightly, 3 minutes. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the beans to the same pan along with the smashed garlic, ½ cup warm water and a pinch of salt; cook over low heat until warmed through, smashing slightly with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in another skillet. Fry the eggs sunny-side up; season with pepper.
  4. Place 1 warm tortilla on each plate. Divide the beans among them, then top with a fried egg, some salsa and cheese. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with the remaining salsa.
