Huevos Rancheros

It’s hearty, filling, and easy to prepare. Huevos Rancheros is a breakfast staple both in Mexico and the United States. There are many interesting regional versions of this dish. In New Mexico the tortillas are blue, in Oaxaca, they serve fried bananas on top, and in Arizona, they eat huevos divorciados (separated eggs), where one egg receives a green salsa and the other egg a red one. In the Mexico City area, people love to spread refried beans between the tortilla and the eggs, it's my favorite way.

For This Recipe you will need:

  • Eggs: Large eggs
  • Corn Tortillas
