Best ever easy huevos rancheros recipe

Huevos rancheros are the perfect nourishing meal. This traditional vegetarian Mexican breakfast is also known as “rancher’s-style” eggs, typically featuring crispy corn tortillas, black beans, and fried eggs topped with warmed salsa. I absolutely love this hearty meal and grew up eating it at least once a week (it was my mom’s favorite)!

To put my own healthful spin on this classic brunch and breakfast dish, I added some simple yet flavorful ingredients and topped these open faced breakfast tacos with feta cheese. Has anyone else tried feta cheese with huevos rancheros? Because let me just tell you, it is probably the best combination ever.

Anyways, I cannot wait to hear what you think about this healthy breakfast recipe! You can prepare you eggs sunny side up, over easy, and even scramble them. It is by far one of my favorites since its light, packed with protein, balanced with healthy fats, and super filling.

Ingredients in huevos rancheros

This deliciously light and fresh authentic huevos rancheros recipe calls for a handful of simple, good-for-you ingredients. This breakfast recipe has two easy parts: preparing and cooking the homemade pico de gallo and cooking the sunny side up eggs. To make this easy ranchero egg dish you’ll need:

homemade pico de gallo:

  • Vine tomatoes
  • Green onion
  • Red onion
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime
  • Habanero pepper
  • Salt and black pepper

huevos rancheros ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Refined black or pinto beans
  • Corn tortillas
  • Optional garnishes: crumbled feta or cotija cheese, sliced avocado, guacamole, and hot sauce

Best ingredient substitutions

If you find yourself missing an ingredient or two for these ranchero eggs and salsa, try these! I recommend substituting no more than 1-2 ingredients.

  • Fried eggs: easily swap out for a soft boiled egg or omit if you are vegan.
  • Refried black beans: I love refried black beans, but you can substitute them with refried pinto beans, whole black beans, kidney beans, or pinto beans.
  • Homemade pico de gallo: short on time? Just use store-bought pico de gallo or salsa!
  • Corn tortillas: swap corn tortillas with flour tortillas or your favorite grain-free alternative!

How to make 10 minute huevos rancheros

This healthy Mexican breakfast recipe is so easy to make! You’ll only need a saute pan, a knife to cut the vegetables, and a pot to warm the beans. So don’t worry, clean-up is going to be super easy. We’ll start by preparing and cooking the fresh pico de gallo salsa, followed by finely dicing the tomatoes and veggies, and, finally, cooking the eggs and plate everything up! Here is how you make healthy huevos rancheros:

First, heat a large nonstick skillet to medium heat and add in all the pico de gallo ingredients. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 4 – 6 minutes, until liquid reduces. Once done, remove from the heat and set aside in a clean bowl.

Meanwhile, heat up the refried beans in a small saucepan over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or place in a microwave save bowl with a damp paper towel on top for 60 – 90 seconds, or until warm. Taste and add desired about of salt and pepper.

Then, clean and place the large nonstick skillet back onto the stovetop on medium heat. Lightly coat with nonstick spray or add a dash of olive oil. Fry eggs to your desired doneness.

Meanwhile, in a small dry skillet over medium heat, warm each tortilla until soft and edges begin to brown.

To plate, add the tortillas to a plate. Top each tortilla with refried black beans and one fried egg. Evenly spoon the warmed salsa onto each egg, avoiding the egg yolk. Garnish with cilantro, feta cheese, avocado, and hot sauce if desired.

Enjoy this delicious vegetarian egg breakfast!

Are huevos rancheros healthy?

Yes, huevos rancheros are most certainly a healthy, balanced, and nourishing meal. In fact, each serving has 16 grams of protein! The eggs are rich in omega 3s and vitamin B12. The corn tortillas are packed with fiber and magnesium. The fresh tomatoes are an incredible source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. You’ll not only love the flavor and taste of this Mexican breakfast recipe, but you’ll love the health benefits!

Meal prepping huevos rancheros

Even though huevos rancheros is typically a breakfast and brunch dish, I absolutely love enjoying it any time of day, especially as a meal prep lunch or dinner! To do this, simply prepare your pico de gallo and black beans per the directions.

Then, store each component, including the toasted corn tortillas, in individual containers or separate sections of your Tupperware. When you are ready to enjoy, heat everything up on the stovetop or in the microwave, top with feta or cotija cheese, avocado, and freshly cooked eggs. If you go into the office for lunch, you can soft-boil or scramble your eggs ahead of time too!

How to store and reheat ranchero eggs

Storage: Simply store leftover pico de gallo and black beans separately in individual airtight containers in the fridge for 3 – 4 days. Warm the tortilla and fry the egg just before serving.

Reheating: For the best results, reheat the pico de gallo and black beans on the stove top. If not, you can use a microwave and place a damp paper towel while heating.
