Huevos Rancheros

Breakfast at my Abuela’s house was always very delicious.  She made the best Mexican recipes, a lot of them began with breakfast, my personal favorite was eggs with chorizo.  As an adult, I became acquainted with the taste and textures of Huevos Rancheros.

Of all the ingredients, I think the refried beans bring this recipe together.  Normally I make homemade beans in my pressure cooker and that takes over an hour.  

There are four flavors including Traditional, Chorizo, Jalapeño, or Queso flavors.  I chose the Chorizo flavor just because I love it so much.  Let’s get started making this recipe favorite.

5.  Turn the same pan down to medium-low heat and add your two eggs.  Prepare like you normally would.

7.  Add 1/2 cup beans to the bottom of the plate then tortilla and egg; repeat.

8.  Add tomato sauce mixture to the top with a pinch of cheese.  If you would like it to be more authentic use queso fresco.
