Being Canadian, the only time we were able to enjoy this dish was when we traveled to Cali. When searching for a recipe (including this site) I unfortunately could not find the perfect solution. There were so many different variations with either too many ingredients or missing things we love most. I'm a busy Mom and want EASY so I decided to wing it and came up with my own version. Top with sour cream if desired.

  • Arrange tostada shells on a baking sheet. Spread a layer of refried beans onto each shell; sprinkle each shell with about 1 tablespoon Cheddar cheese.

  • Combine chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, salsa, and 1 cup cilantro in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until warm, about 5 minutes.

  • Put black beans in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until warm, about 1 minute.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook each egg in the melted butter until white is firm and yolk is still together, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully place each cooked egg atop a tostada shell; sprinkle with remaining Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake tostadas in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

  • Place each tostada on a plate; top with salsa mixture and cilantro. Spoon black beans on the side.

Being a hot summer day I heated the tortillas in a cast iron skillet then added the refried beans and cheese then topped with fried egg and salsa. Worked fine!

Great recipe! I omitted the side of black beans As I felt the refried beans took care of business. I will definitely make this again

Made this for my husband this morning; he liked them. I am a whimp when it comes to spicy food therefore I seeded the peppers that were in adobo sauce used my favorite salsa verde and they were just right for my whimpy tastebuds. Would I make them again......absolutely.

This recipe was great! Very tasty with refried beans and everything! One thing I would change next time is just crack the egg right on the tostada and refried beans. I cooked mine beforehand as instructed and they came out with the yolks nearly fully cooked and I like mine runny. To each their own though! Also I just bought some fancy-ish salsa from Walmart and spooned it one the tostadas after they were done baking. Still good! Another thing I actually just bought corn tortillas instead of tostadas and put a little butter on the bottom of them then baked them. All of the tostadas at Walmart looked like they were already broken but with this method they still came out flavorful and crunchy!

Don’t need to make. This is the most ridiculous huevos rancheros recipe I’ve ever heard of. I’ve ate at a lot of authentic Mexican restaurants and have never had a variation like this.

Pretty great recipe. I'm only a fan of salsa if I buy it from authentic mexican markets. I don't like any of the name brand salsa stuff so if you're like me I suggest replacing the salsa with soy chorizo. It was very good made that way.

A fantastic base recipe for the huevos rancheros! I omitted the side of black beans I think the refried were enough beans for me:) YUM!
