The best Huevos Rancheros recipe!


What’s your favorite way to serve up eggs? I’ve always loved Huevos Rancheros and even more so after the Carnival cruise I went on recently….While on board the ship I enjoyed Huevos Rancheros as often as I could. This recipe can easily be adapted with any veggies & proteins you like!

Isn’t that blue water gorgeous?!

Below is a photo of the eggs I enjoyed on the cruise…..I told ya. They were amazing! Seasoned perfectly with Mexican spices & fresh pico de gallo. They used pinto beans & served the dish with a few delicious salsas. One of my favorites was a smoky chipotle sauce.

After I had this for brunch on the ship, I would lie out on the decks and enjoy the bright sunshine & the blue Caribbean Sea. It was the ultimate way to unwind & relax!

This recipe takes hardly any time to prepare, so it’s perfect for when you are entertaining, or trying to feed the family a quick & healthy meal!

What could be better than runny, drippy eggs…..

All you need to do is season & heat up some black beans. Top them with some fresh tomato & avocado salad. Then that runny, drippy egg!

Top that with feta, goat or queso cheese & sliced green onion.

What you end up with is breakfast or brunch perfection. Great for dinner too….

    We first had Huevos Rancheros on our Honeymoon in Mexico a few years back, and I haven’t had them since.
    BUT, that runny drippy yolky goodness is seriously making me rethink that! Pinned!

    Homemade huevos rancheros have been on my to-do list for awhile, but seriously? I think it just got pushed to the tippy-top. This looks absolutely phenomenal with the perfectly-cooked eggs and all those fun toppings! Need these this weekend! 🙂 Pinned.

    Your version looks better than the cruise ship’s — I love egg breakfasts in Mexico.

    Love the rebranding of your site! The red suits your personality.

      Thanks for noting the rebranding….this is a huge work in progress! Gonna take a good amount of time to make all the changes we have planned. I agree, red is way more my color!! xx

    Everything about this post has me drooling! I want a vacation, a plate of huevos rancheros and the ocean. Is that too much to ask for in the middle of December?

    And where is the “Ranchero Sauce” ?

    Instead of black beans, use pinto. Instead of olive oil, use a bit of lard. The latter is not as healthy, but it give the huevos rancheros an authentic, Mexican, not Tex Mex, flavor
