Easy Huevos Rancheros

I love spicy eggs for breakfast. This recipe is a simple way to make huevos rancheros at home. My recipe makes one large breakfast.


Huevos Rancheros. My breakfast.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup of fresh chopped tomato
  • 1/8 cup of chopped white onion
  • 1 or more tbsps of roasted, pickled, or fresh chopped jalapeno peppers
  • 1/8 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp of salt, or as much as needed
  • 1 tbsp of fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 cup of mozzarella cheese 


Ranchero Sauce

First, add chopped tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos to a warm non-stick skillet with a bit of olive oil on medium high heat. Allow everything to saute for two minutes. Then, add the water, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, and cilantro. Continue to cook for five to seven minutes or until the water and tomato paste form a thick sauce. 

Adding eggs

Once the sauce is thicker, make a opening in the center and add two eggs unbeaten as shown in the picture. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven for 5 minutes.

Adding cheese

Then, add mozzarella cheese along the top. Place pan back  in the oven for a 3 more minutes if you want your eggs soft/runny or continue to cook for 10 minutes for a hard yolk. 

Serve warm with a corn tortilla and garnished with fresh cilantro. Enjoy!!
