Huevos Rancheros

One of my favorite Mexican dishes! We had this delicious breakfast when we went to Cancun and its been my favorite ever since! I tried it out last Sunday, including making the rachero sauce from scratch and it turned out DELISH!! :) I cant believe how good it tasted! Raj loved it too!

Here is the recipe!


2 whole wheat tortillas
oil OR cooking spray to cook the tortillas
2 eggs
1/2 can of black beans
1 tablespoon spring onions
1 teaspoon of cilantro
3/4 cup grated pepper jack cheese

Ranchero sauce recipe:
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 onion finely chopped
3-4 finely chopped garlic
5 tomatoes finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
3 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
1 tablespoon sour cream


In a medium saucepan, at medium heat,add in the oil. Add in the onions and garlic and saute it till golden brown. Add in the tomatoes and let it cook at medium low heat for 5-7 minutes. Add in the salt,pepper, and cayenne pepper, saute it. Add in the chipotle peppers. Cook for 5 more minutes till you see that the mixture is mushy enough.

Put this mixture in the food processor and blend it till smooth! Remove it in a bowl, and stir in the sour cream till the sauce looks smooth and creamy.

Now, in a small saucepan, add in the black beans, cilantro and spring onions. Add in salt to taste. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes till hot.

In a pan, cook the tortilla one at a time with cooking spray or oil on both sides until light brown and a wee bit crisp. Remove it on a plate.

Now, on a plate, assemble the tortilla, and add half of the cooked black beans. Now cook the egg in a pan, in a fried egg style with cooking spray or little oil. Let it cook for a couple of minutes. Now add half of the cheese on the egg and cover the pan until the cheese melts. The egg is done! Now slip out the egg onto the black beans. Top it with the drizzles of ranchero sauce. Garnish with chopped spring onions!

Disfrutar!! (Enjoy in spanish!! )
