Huevos Rancheros literally means rancher’s eggs in Spanish. Huevos rancheros is a popular Mexican dish consisting of fried eggs served over lightly fried tortillas with a tomato chili sauce, refried beans, Mexican style rice, and avocado or guacamole. Of course there are many versions of this, my version here is a bit simpler mostly because I’m not a fan of refried beans, so I just served my eggs over my lightly fried tortillas with a tomato chili sauce, and some cheddar cheese.
Now having said all that, I have to admit that this was the first time I ever ate huevos rancheros. I’m so glad I finally tried this popular Mexican breakfast, it’s so much fun to eat and it’s so delicious. I’m a big fan right now. Really really love it, but I’m a big fan of great big breakfasts, especially on weekends. These eggs certainly exceeded my expectations.
If you think the tomato sauce is too complicated to make you could always use salsa, but I loved making this sauce, I used these Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce which is my latest favorite ingredient, there is so much flavor in that pepper, but it’s very spicy too so be careful.
