Huevos Rancheros

My friend Deborah and I have made these often for weekend brunch. (Or after an adventure.) They are easy and fun to make and delicious. A traditional New Mexican dish.

The Recipe


  1. Grate the cheddar cheese.
  2. Heat the beans.
  3. Heat the green chile.
  4. Fry 1 or 2 eggs per person, fry to order (e.g. "over easy")
  5. Do the following for each plate, 1 plate per person:
    1. Put tortilla on the plate.
    2. Add beans on top or on the side.
    3. Sprinkle grated cheese on top.
    4. Spoon green chile over all.
    5. Put in microwave (or hot oven if plates will allow) and heat till cheese is melted and everything is hot.
  6. Put fried egg(s) on top of hot tortilla/cheese/beans/etc. (Try to time it so egg is done just as plate finishes heating.)
  7. If you have fresh tomatoes, chop and put those on top. Lots.
  8. Serve with salsa, sour cream, cilantro, etc.
