My family has been making these for years and while they seem rather simple, they are surprisingly delicious. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

  • Lightly oil a large skillet and place over medium heat. Place 1 tortilla in the skillet and top tortilla with 1/4 of the refried beans, leaving a space in the center of the tortilla. Crack 1 egg into the center of the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 of the onion, 1/4 of the Cheddar cheese, and 1/4 of the chopped green chilies over egg and beans. Place 1 tortilla over the top. Cook, turning once, until egg is set and each tortilla is browned and crispy, 3 to 6 minutes per side.

  • Transferred finished "pizza" to a plate and repeat process with remaining tortillas, beans, eggs, onion, cheese, and chilies.

As written I had trouble with this recipe. The egg was not cooked (runny whites and yolk) by the time the tortilla was crispy. The first one I transferred to a sheet pan and placed in a low oven which cooked the egg but left the tortilla a little 'chewy' instead of crisp. Plan B: I spread the beans onions green chilies and cheese on the remaining tortillas. Used the same pan I had cooked the onions in and made over easy eggs. Placed one over easy egg onto the loaded tortilla and topped with the other tortilla and cooked until they were crisp. This worked much better as the eggs were done at the same time the tortillas were golden brown and crispy. Thanks Brix for a new take on Huevos Rancheros. Read More

The egg did not cook at all so unfortunately we had runny eggs. I pre cooked the eggs on the last two and that worked much better. Read More
