Huevos Rancheros Recipe

Super easy to make, it made we wonder why I never made Huevos Rancheros before. Hungry and wanting something filling, but quick to make since it was for lunch on a work day, I decided to made my own version of Huevos Rancheros for Patrick and me, based on what I had in the pantry. It was really good, devoured in minutes and left us feeling very satisfied.


1 can of black beans

Corn tortillas

Shredded Mexican mix cheese (plain shredded cheddar is fine as well)


½ medium onion, diced

1 TBS sofrito

Egg (1 per tortilla)

Sour cream (optional)

1 TBS cooking oil

1/2 cup water

Now What?

Heat the oil in a small saucepan/pot.

When hot, add in diced onion and sauté until somewhat translucent.

Add in the sofrito and mix well.

Add in water and black beans. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the water is pretty much gone.

While beans are cooking, fry your eggs (to your liking) in a separate pan. People usually prefer the egg yolk to be runny. Set aside when done.

Mash the black beans.

Heat the corn tortillas. Now begin assembly.

Spread a good amount of the black bean mixture on each tortilla.

Top with salsa.

Top with shredded cheese.

Top with egg.

Serve with sour cream on the side.
