Huevos Rancheros

I haven't done a post on a breakfast dish for a while, so I thought I'd share one of my favorites--Huevos Rancheros.  They're fast and simple, filling and delicious.  And no, I'm not a purist who says you have to make your own salsa for them to be great.  There are lots of good salsas at the supermarket, especially in the refrigerated case.  Pick one that has ingredients and the heat level that you like and call it good.  My husband is very particular about his eggs; consequently he cooks all the eggs at our house :).  They are always done to perfection.  For scrambled eggs, he adds just a splash of fresh cream towards the end of the cooking.  Mmmmm.

Huevos Rancheros

2 eggs per person (or more for big eaters)
Grated cheese (optional)
Sour cream (optional)

Scramble the eggs in a little butter; salt and pepper to taste and add a little cream at the end if you wish.  Put on a warmed plate and top with salsa (warm it for 15 seconds in the microwave so it doesn't cool the eggs).  Top with sliced or diced fresh avocado.  You can also add some grated cheese and/or a dollop of sour cream on top, if you like.  Serve immediately.

Personally, I like the fresh taste of the salsa and avocado unadorned, so I usually skip the cheese and sour cream, but I know those who think it's incomplete without them, so you choose! 

With a slice of your gluten free bread toasted and some fresh fruit, you've got a complete, nutritious, weekend-worthy breakfast ready to go!


  1. My hubby loves to put this in the center of 2 corn tortillas that have been warmed in the microwave for a few seconds. It is his favorite breakfast.

  2. Another great gluten-free way to eat this huevos rancheros! Thanks for your comment!
