Huevos Rancheros

Huevos rancheros combines a crispy corn tortilla with the creamy yolk of a sunny side up egg and the spicy freshness of salsa. This recipe is easy to make and will be ready in a flash!

Huevos Rancheros

Yield: serves 4


  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • ½ cup salsa or pico de gallo (freshly made or from a jar)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a small frying pan, heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Cook the egg sunny side up until the whites are hardened but the yolk is soft.  Add a pinch of salt and pepper on the egg.
  2. In a medium sauté pan, heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat and place a tortilla in it. After a minute or 2, turn it over and place the egg on top of the tortilla.
  3. Sprinkle about a teaspoon or so of cheese on top of the egg. The heat will melt the cheese. After the cheese is melted (about 1-2 minutes), remove the huevos rancheros from the pan and add about 2 teaspoons of salsa (or to taste) on top.
  4. Repeat for the other 3 tortillas.

Serve immediately.
