4 huevos rancheros


  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • ½ cup chopped yellow onion

  • ¼ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 corn tortillas

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans, heated

  • ¾ cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped

  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves, or to taste

  • ½ avocado, sliced


  1. Heat 1/2 of the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomato, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes more. Set salsa aside.

  2. Heat about 1 teaspoon oil in a pan. Add tortillas one at a time; cook until heated through, about 20 seconds each. Keep warm.

  3. Heat remaining oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Pour in eggs. Cook until set to your desired consistency, 4 to 6 minutes.

  4. Spread a thin layer of refried beans onto each tortilla. Add a spoonful of salsa. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Add a fried egg and sprinkle some more cheese, chopped jalapeno, and cilantro on top. Serve immediately with avocado and remaining refried beans and cheese on the side.
