Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

Skip the restaurant lines this weekend and make your own delicious brunch at home. Huevos Rancheros is a satisfying dish that comes together faster than you might think. Not only will you save money by staying in, but you’ll also get a mouthwatering dish that’s a lot less greasy than restaurant versions.

You’ll first start by cooking the spiced tomato and chili salsa in a pan. When it’s close to finished, start frying the eggs. Warm tortillas will serve as the base, then top the with salsa, egg, and sprinkle with toppings like red onion, grated cheese, and cilantro.

If you happen to have leftovers, they’re best stored separately. You can reheat the components, then assemble right before eating. If you store the Huevos Rancheros pre-assembled, the tortilla shells will be soggy the next day.

These healthier Huevos Rancheros nix the deep fried chips in favor of a single baked tortilla topped with a rich red chili sauce and a single sunny egg.
