Easy Huevos Rancheros Recipe
Huevos Rancheros or Rancher’s Eggs, “que decir de estos Huevos Rancheros?” What to say about these Huevos Rancheros? ¡Mucho! A lot!! First, they are spectacular and if you have never had Huevos Rancheros, BOY OH BOY are you missing out! They are so delicious and are such a different twist on breakfast. This Easy Huevos Rancheros Recipe is truly a breakfast for champions!
Believe me, I love my waffles and eggs, my pancakes and bacon, eggs benedict with ham, poached eggs on toast are fabulous, but a Mexican breakfast such as this one, is truly a special treat!
Out of all of the mexican breakfast recipes out there, like huevos rancheros with chorizo, huevos rancheros casserole, omelet recipes, and Chilaquiles, this is certainly one of my ultimate favorites.
Here’s the thing, I’m always very busy 7 days a week so for me to take 30 minutes to make a special breakfast for my family during the week, is really hard. But I always try to make time on the weekends no matter how busy my schedule is to make them a fully enjoyable breakfast.
I literally go all out with my breakfast. I make waffles, pancakes, poached eggs or fried, home fries (my favorite), bacon and sausage, biscuits and gravy and whatever else my family asks me for. Whatever, their beautiful hearts desire.
But every so often I throw in there my easy huevos rancheros recipe and surprise them with this awesome egg concoction.
Huevos Rancheros (Rancher’s Eggs) are very simple to make and the combination of corn tortillas, eggs, spicy sauce….oh my goodness!
You see, Huevos Rancheros are served very common place in Mexico, it’s considered an authentic mexican food with sides of refried beans, rice, avocado, guacamole, potatoes and other delicious treats! But this delicious mexican breakfast has also become so popular here in the States because word of any delicious food travels fast!
So what makes these eggs so good or one of the best mexican foods? MY personal opinion is that firstly is, anything spicy adds a level of deliciousness especially when you can still retain the original flavor of the main ingredient but yet enhance it’s taste….in this case the EGGS with the ranchero sauce!
Note: If by chance you do not like anything spicy just exclude the serrano peppers from the ranchero sauce.
Huevos Rancheros Salsa-Ranchero Sauce
Ranchero sauce is made up of very simple ingredients of which you can add additional condiments too, to add variety to your sauce, but traditionally, ranchero sauce for eggs is just tomatoes, garlic, serrano peppers (click to try this serrano sauce made with serrano peppers and jalapeno peppers, you will love this sauce with steak or chicken from a fellow blogger, Natalie at Vanille Verte) or jalapeno peppers and onions blended together and poured over the eggs with the base of the eggs being the corn tortillas…simple!
