Huevos rancheros may be the best breakfast.

Fried eggs, hot crispy tortillas, refried beans and salsa come together in a beautiful blend of flavors and textures. So satisfying and truly the best way to start the day.

Like most breakfast darlings, there are many ways to make huevos rancheros and each family has its own way. That being said, all huevos rancheros dishes include: fried eggs, salsa, and tortillas. This iteration is our best huevos rancheros and is absolutely one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. Making huevos rancheros from scratch is one of the most satisfying breakfasts you can make, and it’s so easy whether you use freshly made or store-bought salsa.

What are huevos rancheros?

Huevos rancheros is a Mexican breakfast consisting of lightly fried tortillas, refried beans, fried eggs, and salsa. It can be spicy or mild and topped with cheese, avocado, cilantro, and any additional ingredients. Huevos rancheros means “ranch style eggs” and is essentially a super hearty breakfast eaten by ranch/farm workers to stay strong throughout the day.

How to make Huevos Rancheros

Most good breakfasts (just like French toast or chilaquiles) are a smart way to use up leftovers in a new dish, and huevos rancheros are no exception. It’s great in two ways. First, because you are using ingredients that are already in your fridge. And second, since many components are already ready, it helps to get breakfast on the table even faster. Of course, you can take the more complicated route and make everything from scratch too. I will review both methods so you can choose your own adventure with huevos rancheros.

  1. Prepare the sauce. In a saucepan, lightly brown the diced onions and add the roasted tomatoes, diced bell peppers, broth, cumin and oregano. Cook over low heat until slightly thick and aromatic.
  2. Fry the tortillas. Lightly brown the tortillas in the hot oil until golden brown and crisp around the edges.
  3. Fry the eggs. Fry fried eggs with firm whites and creamy yolks.
  4. Assembler. Roll out crispy tortillas and top with hot sauce.
  5. add a fried egg and garnish with even more sauce.
  6. Finish with some fresh cheese and cilantro and add a side of refried beans.
  7. Enjoy. Dive in, be sure to have a bite of everything – crispy tortilla, flavorful salsa, and creamy egg!

Ingredients Huevos rancheros


Salsa means sauce in Spanish and for the huevos rancheros you can use any sauce you like, store bought or homemade. I like to make a simple homemade ranch sauce with canned fire-roasted tomatoes, onion, and roasted green chiles simmered in chicken broth, but store-bought sauce works too. Note that salsa here means sauce. The sauce can be red (red), green (green) or both (divorced/Christmas). If you have leftover red chile or green chile in your fridge, they are a delicious option. If you’re buying store-bought salsa, I recommend cooking it a bit on the stove with some cumin and oregano (Mexican) to deepen the flavors.


Refried beans are optional, but often seen on the plate, either in tortillas or served on the side. They are not essential, but I love the combination of creamy beans with salsa, eggs and tortilla. It is totally up to you! If you want to go all out, you can make your own refried beans, use leftover refried beans you have in the fridge, or just store-bought.


The huevos rancheros come with small, lightly fried corn tortillas on toast, but if you only have flour tortillas, you can use those as well. Or, if you’re in a hurry, you can also use store-bought toast. Frying your own corn tortillas at home gives you control over how crisp and soft they are, and the combination of crispy edges and a tender center is key.


You can’t have eggs without eggs! The sunny side is classic. I love mine with crisp lace edges and a gloriously sunny creamy yellow.

Garnishes and accompaniments

  • Avocados (sliced ​​or guacamole)
  • Cheese (Queso Fresco is the way to go here)
  • Mexican rice
  • pico de gallo
  • sliced ​​jalapenos
  • Cilantro

Truly the sky is the limit. You can keep it as simple or as complicated as you want!
