Breakfast Recipes


Butter Both sides of tortilla and brown both sides in a skillet. 

Add 2 TBSP oil and 2 Tbsp  Butter to the same pan. Cut red potatoes in circles and fry both sides Salt and pepper both sides of your potatoes. Move to a paper towel when done to remove excess oil. Drain oil and wipe pan with a paper towel. Next Sautee your onions. You can do both together but I didn't.

Add your favorite thick and chunky salsa to the pan, wait till bubbly and add your eggs. 

Note:  I don't like sunny side up eggs, so I placed a lid on till they were the way I wanted them, but my son loves them so I would do them without the lid for him. It's just your preference.

Ranchero Huevos is a dish with Mexican origins, typically featuring eggs served with a spicy tomato-based sauce. While the basic concept remains the same, there can be variations in ingredients and preparation. Here are some different types of Ranchero Huevos you might come across:

  1. Classic Ranchero Huevos: This version features fried or poached eggs served on a bed of sautéed potatoes, topped with a spicy tomato and chili pepper sauce, and garnished with cilantro and queso fresco.

  2. Huevos Rancheros with Refried Beans: This variation adds a layer of creamy refried beans to the plate alongside the eggs and is often served with warm tortillas on the side.

  3. Huevos Divorciados: "Divorced eggs" are two eggs served side by side, each with a different sauce—one red (spicy tomato-based) and the other green (made with tomatillos and green chilies).

  4. Breakfast Burrito Ranchero: This version wraps the Ranchero Huevos in a flour tortilla with additional ingredients such as avocado, cheese, and sometimes rice or beans.

  5. Ranchero Huevos with Chorizo: This variation adds crumbled Mexican chorizo sausage to the tomato sauce for an extra burst of flavor and spice.

  6. Ranchero Huevos with Guacamole: Instead of plain avocado slices, this version incorporates guacamole as a topping for the eggs.

  7. Baked Ranchero Huevos: Eggs are baked in the spicy tomato sauce, creating a one-pan dish that's perfect for feeding a crowd.

  8. Ranchero Huevos Benedict: A creative twist that replaces the traditional English muffin in Eggs Benedict with cornbread or a tortilla, topped with poached eggs and the spicy sauce.

  9. Vegetarian Ranchero Huevos: This version omits the meat and adds additional veggies like bell peppers, corn, or zucchini to the sauce or as a side.

Remember that the specific ingredients and preparation can vary depending on regional and personal preferences. Whether you like it spicy, mild, with meat or vegetarian, Ranchero Huevos offers a delicious and versatile dish to suit a variety of tastes.
