Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros is a traditional mexican breakfast that consists of a corn tortilla, black beans, salsa, guacamole and a fried egg. This is one of my most favourite breakfasts ever and is super simple to make and lovely on a sunny summer morning like today!!! 

Huevos Rancheros
serves 3 

Tomato & Corn Salsa 

extra virgin olive oil 
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/3 red onion, finely chopped
1 cup roughly chopped cherry tomatoes 
1 level tbsp balsamic vinegar
Few sprigs of coriander, roughly chopped + extra for serving
1 tbsp good quality tomato paste (I used the brand mutti) 
corn kernels of 1/2 small cob of corn, cooked lightly   
salt and pepper 

Grilled Black bean and Corn Tortilla 

3 large corn tortillas 
1/2 can black beans, drained 
3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
salt and pepper 


Flesh from 1 avocado 
squeeze lime juice 
salt and pepper
1 small garlic clove, crushed 

3 eggs
oil for frying
Sour cream to serve 

Firstly make the tomato and corn salsa. Heat a glug of the oil in a small fry pan and add the onion and garlic. Fry for a few minutes or until they start to golden. Add the chopped tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, coriander and tomato paste and simmer for a about 2 minutes or until the juices start to thicken up slightly. Add the corn kernels and season with salt and pepper. Cook for a further minutes then take of the heat and set aside. 

For the tortillas, mash the black beans slightly then stir in the grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spread it on half of the tortillas and fold over to sandwich together. Place in a toastie machine and toast until they are nice and golden on the outside. 
Meanwhile, mash together all the guacamole ingredients to make the guacamole. 

Heat a little oil in a large fry pan and fry the 3 eggs until cooked, keeping the egg yolk runny. Place each tortilla on a plate, top with the fried egg and divide the salsa and guacamole between each plate. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped fresh coriander.
