These “ranchers eggs” are such a great thing to wake up to. Huevos Rancheros also makes a great quick supper.

Huevos Rancheros

Although I grew up in Southern California, noshing on Mexican food all my life, there are some dishes that just weren’t in my repertoire until adulthood. Chimichangas and tamales and chile relleno were things I’d heard about, but not really tasted or knew how to make until I was older.

I’m still scared

I’d never even tasted Huevos Rancheros until last spring when we went out to brunch with friends, and FishPapa ordered it. I was really surprised how good beans, tortillas, and eggs tasted together! Who knew?

You will love this dish. It makes the perfect quick and easy breakfast, but is equally good for lunch or dinner. Serve a little bit of southwest style coleslaw on the side, like my Cumin-Scented Cabbage Salad or Creamy Cole Slaw that Won’t Go Soggy.

If you don’t have a plan for Cinco de Mayo yet, this should be it!

    That looks amazing! What kind of slaw is on the side? It doesn’t look like the other two slaws that you linked to. We will definitely be having this to eat soon! Thanks!

    These look amazing! I have a strange question: Do you eat this with a knife and fork or do you pick it up and bite into it like a tostada?
