There is nothing like the classic Southwest/Mexican breakfast, huevos rancheros (which simply means “ranch eggs”). It is one of those simple, elegant dishes that should be easy to do at home. There’s nothing like runny fried eggs, fresh (or store-bought) tortillas, various fun additions (beans, bacon, ham, etc.) to start the morning.
Our version uses the Serious Foodie Hatch Chile Sauce as a base – so all you need are eggs, tortillas, and your condiments of choice to make this fun, easy – and impressive – morning dish.
Huevos Rancheros – Serious Foodie Style
Recipe Type: Breakfast/Brunch
Serves: Serves 4
You can add a number of different, fun vegetables to the base, such as spinach, or small diced butternut squash. Whatever you think works with eggs and salsa verde.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup chopped white onion
- 1/2 cup julienne sliced red bell pepper
- 10 ounce jar Serious Foodie Hatch Chile Sauce
- 12 ounce can black beans (can use red beans or re-fried beans)
- 8 (5-inch) corn tortillas
- 4 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- Optional: crispy bacon, ham, cilantro, lime wedges, scallion, sliced jalapeno, chopped fresh cilantro
- Heat oil in a saute pan, medium heat. Add the onion and pepper, and saute until tender (you can caramelize the vegetables).
- Add about three quarters of the Hatch Chile Sauce to the pan, along with the black beans. Bring to a simmer, and hold for plating with the eggs.
- Prepare the tortillas (there are many easy make-at-home fresh tortilla recipes. Or use your favorite store-bought brand).
- Prepare the eggs. (We suggest fried eggs, but any version works). Salt and pepper to taste.
- Add some of the vegetable mixture to each plate, then add the egg. Add a tablespoon of the remaining Hatch Chile Sauce over each egg. Place the optional items on each plate according to taste, along with the tortillas
- (Note: you can start with placing a tortilla down on the plate, then add the vegetable mix and egg).
