Huevos Rancheros

A homemade breakfast that’s every bit as good if not better than at a restaurant!

Huevos-Rancheros

If it were up to me, any time is the right time for Mexican food.  My favorite part about Mexican food are the crispy tortillas.

Crispy tortillas are super easy to make and can really make a recipe taste like something out of a really good Mexican restaurant.  I almost always have a small skillet on the stove with canola oil in it because I make Mexican food so often.

This huevos rancheros recipe is delicious and the egg can be cooked however you would like it.  In this recipe the egg is cooked over easy but it can also be cooked over hard if preferred.

It’s made with a quick and easy warm salsa but if you’re in a pinch for time, your favorite prepared salsa can be used instead.

This is a great dish to make for dinner too.  Perfect for one of those breakfast-for-dinner meals.

So here’s to Mexican food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
