Can we just talk about how easy that was? But don’t let the simplicity fool you, these breakfast tacos are jam-packed with FLAVAH! (because flavor and FLAVAH! are two different things).

What Is Huevos Rancheros?

My friend, you are in for a treat! This traditional Mexican breakfast features corn tortillas topped with beans, fried eggs, and fresh pico de gallo. It’s savory, fresh, and oh so delicious. It takes no time to prepare and I can never resist runny egg yolk action.

Whether they are served in the morning, noon, or at night, I’ll eat these any day, anytime! My favorite way to serve them though is breakfast for dinner, which is one of my favorite meals to make, I just let the kids think it’s for them.

Huevos Rancheros Translation

Huevos Rancheros simply translates as – rancher’s eggs, this dish got its name from the typical egg breakfast served throughout rural Mexico.

Originally it included fried eggs on corn tortillas smothered in warm salsa but over the years newer versions have made it with fresh salsa, beans, and cheese. Change isn’t always a bad thing and both ways are delicious but to save you and I time I went with the newer version. Plus, I love fresh salsa.

The Taco Tuesday cookbook is filled with classic taco recipes made easy so you and I can enjoy them without spending half the night in the kitchen. You’ll find recipes like carnitas made in the slow cooker, carne asada made fast in a skillet, and fajitas baked on a sheet pan. Same epic flavors, just an easier way to make it happen.

What to put on your Huevos Rancheros

Aside from the beans, eggs, and salsa I also top mine with sour cream, avocado, and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. If you’re a veggie lover and feeling fancy, add sauteed veggies like bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. This is your taco Tuesday and I’m just happy you’re celebrating so you do your thing!

What type of beans to use in huevos rancheros

Again, this one up to you. I used regular black beans but these also taste pretty scrumptious with refried black beans or regular refried pinto beans. The possibilities!
