Whether you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo 5 months in advance, or just hungry for a Mexican breakfast that is just about as easy as it is delicious, my easy Classic Huevos Rancheros recipe is sure to hit the spot. If you can open a can of beans and fry up an egg, you can make this simple recipe. You can use store-bought salsa to make life easy, or go the extra mile and whip up some homemade salsa. (Spoiler alert, look for that recipe later this week.
Classic Huevos Rancheros
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups Medium Salsa (plus more for serving)
1/2 tsp salt
8 corn tortillas
4 eggs, fried over medium
- In a medium sized skillet add black beans, 1 1/2 cups salsa and salt. Stir mixture and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook until most of the liquid has absorbed, about 5-7 minutes.
- In a dry skillet set over medium heat, warm each tortilla until soft and edges begin to brown.
- On a plate add tortillas, top with 1 cup of the bean mixture and a fried egg. Garnish with additional salsa, cotija cheese, cilantro, avocado, and hot sauce if desired. Continue with the remaining servings and serve warm.
