Huevos Rancheros Recipe

Huevos Rancheros

Originally served out on the range, this ranch-style breakfast dish is a combination of eggs served on fried corn tortillas smothered in a cooked salsa or sauce. A favorite “morning after” dish that starts the day with a zing – this hearty dish can be enjoyed any time of the day! We serve ours with a side of refried beans and rice.


6-8 tbsp. vegetable oil to fry tortillas
8 6-inch corn tortillas
1 (16 oz.) jar of La Posta Chile Co. Green Chile Sauce
8 eggs
½ cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese


(1) Preheat oven to 250°F and place four serving plates in preheated oven to warm.
(2) In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat sauce until bubbly, about 5 minutes and then reduce heat to low.
(3) In a medium skillet, add oil and heat on high for 1 minute or until oil bubbles.
Using tongs, carefully dip each tortilla into the oil, turning once, until the tortilla
bubbles and is heated through, about 10 seconds per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
(4) In another skillet, scramble or fry eggs separately, as desired.
(5) Place 2 tortillas slightly overlapping each other on a warmed plate. Plates will be hot – use caution. Place two eggs on top of tortillas on each plate and smother with warmed sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.
(6) Return to oven and heat until cheese is slightly melted, 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately. Great served with refritos, rice and Mexican slaw!
