There are many versions of huevos rancheros, some with cheese, beans or grilled chiles. The most authentic way to make huevos rancheros is very simple, eggs and salsa, served with corn tortillas. Huevos rancheros are a Mexican tradition.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh salsa
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • oil
  • salt to taste


Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees. Coat each tortilla in oil and place on cookie sheet. When oven is ready, cook for approximately 5-10 minutes, depending on how crisp you like your tortillas.

Heat oil in small frying pan, cook each egg slowly on one side until whites are firm and yolks are runny. Salt to taste. Place one egg on each tortilla.

Heat salsa in the pan on high heat for about 2 minutes or until extremely hot. Pour 1/4 cup over the top of each egg which will further cook the top of the egg. Let it sit for about 1 minute before serving.

Truly Mexican recipe., Member Ferigamo

That's a truly Mexican recipe that I prepare every now and then. Since I can't find masaharina in Argentina, where I live, I do the whole NIXTAMALIZADO process myself, using lime, water and soaking the whole grain corn in it for 2 or 3 days, etc. It's a lot of work, but it turns out really good, and have no choice for now anyway. I also make my own Mexican Salsa. I Like it piping HOT.
