Huevos Rancheros

I usually update the blog on Wednesday because I don’t have work until later in the day, so it works out perfectly. I really love my Wednesday mornings. They’re relaxing. I get to cook breakfast for myself and snuggle my pup. It’s great.

Except this Tuesday night I went to bed and felt like I had something in my eye. I flushed my eye like 6 times with different things and I just couldn’t get it out, so I finally went to bed. I woke up and my eye was still really bothering me, so I called the doctor and made an appointment. Of course that means I spent my entire relaxing Wednesday morning in the doctors office. They found that I scratched my eye and said to give it a few days to heal, otherwise I have to go to the eye doctor. It still is bothering me, so it looks like I’ll be spending my day at the eye doctor tomorrow. BLAH.

Since I enjoy my Wednesday morning breakfasts so much, I am always looking for fun things to eat. Anthony made these huevos rancheros one Saturday morning and I have been obsessed with them since then. They are so good. You need to try these now. I feel like this recipe is basically just telling you what ingredients to put together, but you really need to make these.

Huevos Rancheros

Yields – 2 servings

Prep time – 15 minutes

Cook time – 20 minutes


  • 4 small flour tortillas
  • 1/2 a can of refried beans
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 a yellow onion
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of salsa verde
  • splash of hot sauce
  • scallions to garnish


  1. Heat oil in a medium pan over medium high heat. Fry each tortilla one at a time until they are crispy.
  2. Chop all your veggies.
  3. Sauté the peppers and onions in a pan until they are softened.
  4. Fry each of your eggs however you like them. Anthony wants his over easy and I like mine scrambled, so that’s how we did ours but you can cook the eggs however you like.
  5. Heat the refried beans in the microwave until they are warmed.
  6. Place the beans on top of your tortilla, then top it with your eggs, then the peppers and onions, then the salsa and hot sauce and garnish with scallions.
