They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not start your morning right with homemade huevos rancheros? This easy-to-make Mexican dish is packed with flavor. Huevos rancheros gets its delicious flavor from the homemade spicy tomato salsa served with fried eggs and warm tortillas. It's a comforting, satisfying dish that will keep you full of energy for hours. There are loads of tasty ways to customize your huevos rancheros. Add beans, avocado, cheese, chorizo, or sour cream for the ultimate huevos rancheros experience.


Tips for Making the Best Huevos Rancheros

Use the freshest eggs you can find for the best flavor.

If you don't have fire-roasted tomatoes, regular crushed tomatoes will do. You can also use 1 to 2 fresh ripe tomatoes. Broil them in the oven to get that delicious fire-roasted flavor.

If you're not a big fan of spice, use bell peppers instead of chilis.

You can leave out the additional spices or add extra for more kick.

If you don't care for cilantro, swap it out for parsley instead.

Extra toppings to add to your huevos rancheros include chorizo, nopales, cheese, black beans, refried beans, avocado, and Mexican rice (arroz rojo).

How to Store Huevos Rancheros

Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp

fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
1 15-ounce can
green Anaheim chiles, diced
1/2 6-ounce can
chipotle chili powder, adobo sauce, and ground cumin (optional)

How to Make Huevos Rancheros

Pour the oil into a large skillet and heat over medium. Add the onions and cook for several minutes, stirring occasionally until soft and translucent.

Stir in the tomatoes with juices. Break up any larger chunks with your spatula.

Stir in chili peppers, chipotle powder, adobo sauce, and ground cumin if using.

Let the sauce simmer, then turn the heat down to low. Cook for 10 minutes, then keep warm.

Preheat your oven to 150F. Put oven-safe plates in the oven. Pour oil into a large skillet. Fry the tortillas one by one for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Place cooked tortillas on a plate in the oven.

Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Crack each of the eggs into the skillet and cook for a few minutes until they reach your desired level of doneness.

Take the plates out of the oven. Add two tortillas, then top with some salsa and fried eggs.

Garnish with parsley.
