Huevos Rancheros




This meal is two of my favourite things all mixed up together! Breakfast for supper? Amazing! Mexican food? Love it!  I can't wait to also serve this for breakfast very soon.



I found this recipe over on skinnytaste.com and it was so quick to make. I am ridiculously excited to have it again for supper tomorrow with the leftovers!


This recipe makes four servings, and is delicious served with some fresh avocado.


Huevos Rancheros
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1 tbsp green chiles, diced
  • cooking spray
  • cumin, salt, and pepper (pinch of each)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lettuce or mixed greens
  • shredded cheese
  • four 6" corn tortillas
  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, and then add the red onion and green pepper
  2. Cook the onion and pepper for a couple minutes, and then add the tomato, green pepper, jalapeno, and green chilies
  3. Cook all of the vegetables together for about 3 minutes, seasoning to taste with the cumin, salt, and pepper. 
  4. Remove the vegetables from the pan, and place them in a covered bowl (to keep them warm)
  5. Lightly spray the pan with the cooking spray, and then place a tortilla in the pan. Give the tortilla a quick spray and then cook on both sides until bubbly and it starts to become crispy. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and set aside
  6. After all of the tortillas are cooked, use the same pan and cook the eggs until sunny-side up, or until they are cooked how you like them best :)
  7. Place each tortilla on a place, and then top each one with one egg and then with the tomato mixture, lettuce, and cheese
  8. Enjoy!
