Huevos Rancheros

huevos rancheros

I know, I know. Hell apparently has frozen over. I’m blogging! Crazy, right? Just know that I’m going to start making more of an effort. I promise.

Now, let’s get back to the food. If you’ve ever had huevos rancheros at more than one restaurant, you’ll know they never taste the same twice. They can include a multitude of ingredients. And be served many different ways. Since I’m too lazy to find out how you’re really supposed to make them, I went with a pretty fool proof recipe. I’m pretty sure this recipe isn’t exactly authentic, but you know what? When it tastes this good, I’m not too concerned about how authentic it is.

Huevos Rancheros
(serves 2)
Ingredients:
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
12 oz ground chorizo (since I didn’t go hunting for chorizo, I used spicy Italian sausage, out of the case, diced into small chunks)
1/2 can refried beans
1/2 can fire roasted tomatoes (which you can find at any grocery store on the canned tomato aisle)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 corn tortillas
1 tbsp butter
5 eggs
1 tbsp milk

Additional:
sour cream
mexican cheese blend
(3 skillets)

The original recipe can be found here, on Life’s Ambrosia, but again, I switched a few things up.

To make:
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 of the diced onions and cook until softened. Stir in sausage/chorizo. Cook 5-7 minutes until sausage is cooked through. Stir in refried beans. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

In another skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil. Add in remaining onions and cook until softened. Stir in fire roasted tomatoes and add salt. Cook for 5 minutes over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low.

Heat last remaining tbsp of oil in yet another skillet. Cook tortillas for 30 seconds on each side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Once tortillas are cooked, drain oil from skillet. Melt butter over low to medium heat. Meanwhile, scramble up eggs using the tbsp of milk. Add to the skillet and scramble until eggs are done. Top with cheese and melt through. Remove from heat.

To assemble:
Place one tortilla on a plate, top with sausage/refried beans. Top with second tortilla. Add scrambled eggs. Spoon tomatoes over top. Add cheese and sour cream.

Enjoy!

  5. Getting your e-mail notification of a new post made me feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I was like, ‘Wahoo! I got a present!” I’ve missed you, Katie O. You could have posted a recipe for a dirt sandwhich and I would have still been excited. Thankfully for all of us, your huevos rancheros sound much better. Although, dirt sandwiches sound like a bad White Trash Wednesday episode. Oh, you have been missed!

  6. Woohooo I gotta agree with nanabread! I was so excited to see a new blog from you! Missed you bunches…

    Hi! I missed you!
    Other than a loaded omlette, this is my favorite way to eat eggs. Love how you layered everything. Looks so much neater than just mixing everything together (the OCD side of me likes this).

    • amy- I’m glad I didn’t take a picture of my husband’s dish. Hi was a hodgepodge of food. I’d seen it served the photo way at a fun little place in town called Urban Pl8. But there’s was tastier and was served with mimosas.
      ps. missed you too.

  11. Man this looks good. Everything about it!! I love fried tortillas.

  12. Don’t ever leave like that again. Do you hear me?

    :slaps you then hugs you tightly:

  13. Oh my god, I am never coming to your blog again if I am hungry.

    Keep that culinary magic away from my eyes until I am prepared for it.

  14. Congrats on making Foodpressed!!! Oh Katie how I have missed you so!!! That photo is so extremely incredible.

  15. Yum, what a great way to start your day!

    Love the photo!
    Huevos rancheros always remind me of vacation, because it’s one of the few times I go out to eat breakfast, and when I do I always get huevo rancheros! The chorizo sounds like a delicious addition…

  17. Wahoo! Just opened FoodPress.com and saw that your Huevos got featured. Congratulations!! S0 proud {sniff}…so very, very proud!

  18. wow that thing really looks delicious. Mmmmmm

  19. This looks SO good. How did you take such a pretty picture?
