Do you love Mexican cuisine for breakfast?

Going out to be breakfast with all my guys, has to be my favorite.  

And, if Huevos Rancheros is on the menu, I’m all over it!

I don’t even know if I can pronounce it correctly… I’m a blonde with a Utah accent.  So, I’m glad I’m just typing this all to you!

Instead of going out to breakfast and ordering some Huevos Rancheros, you can easily make this recipe right up in your own little kitchen!

The tangy, spicy (or mild) sauce which lays under the fried egg and cheese is really what gives this dish pizzazz!  I love using simple tomatillo sauce for my Chili Verde Enchiladas recipe, too.  It’s great to whip up this sauce ahead of time and have in the refrigerator for a convenient and fast breakfast like this one.

These Huevos Rancheros with fried eggs, black beans, crumbled queso fresco cheese… and homemade tomatillo sauce is all really simple to make and bring all together.

  1. 4 corn tortillas
  2. 1 cup oil, for frying
  3. 4 large eggs
  4. 1 15 ounce black beans
  5. 5 ounces Queso Fresco cheese, crumbled
  6. 1 pound tomatillos
  7. 1 small yellow onion
  8. 4 ounce can diced (or fresh) jalapenos
  9. 4 ounce can diced (or fresh) chiles
  10. 1/2 bushel cilantro, chopped.
  11. 3 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  12. 1/2 lime, juiced
  13. 1 tablespoon cumin
  14. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  15. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  16. salt and pepper, to taste
  1. To prepare the tomatillos, peel away the husk and rinse off the stickiness under running water. Place all of the peeled tomatillos in a large pot of cold water. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Drain off water and place in a large blender or food processor. Add chopped onions, jalapenos, chiles, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, cumin, garlic and onion powder to the tomatillos and puree until completely blended. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a small frying pan on medium heat. Place one corn tortilla at a time into the hot oil for 1 and a half minutes on each side. Place on dry paper towels on a flat surface to drain excess oil.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter (or use any other non stick method you would like to use) in a large frying pan on medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into the pan. Put a lid on the pan as so the heat will cook the tops of the eggs without having to flip them.
  4. Drain and rinse beans with hot water.
  5. Place each corn tortilla on plates and layer them with the tomatillo sauce, beans, eggs, and crumbled cheese. Enjoy!
  1. Tomatillo sauce may be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

      You’ll enjoy these, Nicole! Especially the fresh tomatillo sauce. It kind of justifies the healthy part over the fried egg in butter and the tortilla shell fried in oil… lol. 🙂

    Gloria! I’m coming to your house for breakfast. This is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. There’s a little place in Palm Beach that we sometimes go to to grab breakfast. I usually get the Huevos Rancheros cause it’s so good..and it’s my fav!

    Love your recipe and your pics! Pinned.

    Oh wow, those look really delicious…MMM! 🙂 I have never made these but the recipe seems easy enough. My wife and I love these so I am printing your recipe so that we can try them. I grilled a skirt steak this weekend, grilled tomatoes to make a tomato salsa, grilled serrano chiles… etc. I think you get the pictures and we then used flour tortillas for tacos!! Yum!!

    Enjoy your evening!

    My husband and I have always wanted to try these for lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant, but we are always scared they will be too spicy! This recipe sounds so good and something we can do at home and make as hot or mild as we want. Thanks for sharing! Yum Yum!

      Jenny, that’s the best part about making them at home is that you can meter the level of heat. You and your husband would love this. My family loves it mild… but I like it spicy to where my eyes water! lol

    I was hooked by your first sentence, Gloria. Smothered in tomatillo sauce, black beans and topped with a fried egg. As I was nodding my head and before I kept reading, I thought that this dish would make for a great breakfast and lo and behold, that’s exactly where you were going, ha. You know I will be making this yumminess… 3 times a day :))

    this look amazing! I love the flavor combination and the fresh ingredients! Checking this out from the Party Bunch and really wish I was enjoying it with my morning coffee 🙂

      Ashley, my little one takes off the egg and eats without… and it’s his fave. If your husband is a saucy kind of guy, then he’ll fall in love with the sauce alone! Have a great Saturday!

      Cindy, you always make me smile! It’s so hard to pronounce something to a waiter…. so I usually just point to it or expect them to correct me. Still can’t get it! 🙂

    • says

      Andi, you’ll love these! I hate to admit, but now it’s hard to get this when we go out to eat… because I like mine better. Is that so bad to say?!

  7. says

    We are huge fans of Mexican cuisine and would go crazy over these for breakfast! Love your Huevos Rancheros, they look incredible and totally wishing I had these in front of me now for breakfast – pinning 🙂
