Huevos rancheros or “ranch eggs” is a classic Mexican dish that is great for a quick dinner. Traditionally, it's made with a red tomato-based sauce. Here we use tart and tangy green salsa instead. Serve with: brown rice and slices of avocado.

This is my husband's favorite dinner. We both love it with brown rice and avocados. I use the frozen brown rice so the whole thing is really easy. Even though there's only two of us, I usually make the entire recipe except the eggs. The next morning I reheat the tortillas and brown rice and make the eggs and we have the leftovers for breakfast. Fantastic!


Really good! Like the others, I used whole wheat tortillas and since i didn't have romaine, I used arugula and thought it was excellent. I will definitely make this breakfast for dinner again!


My sister is a vegetarian and my fiance wonders where the rest of his meal is if I don't serve a 'protein'. This receipe is the PERFECT solution! They both really enjoy and and so do I. When my sister comes to stay, my sister doesn't have to feel like I'm making something special for her... she doesn't want to be a 'bother'. I'm not a huge fan of corn tortillas, I prefer flour and it comes out great.


My family LOVES this recipe!! We have actually made it with corn and flour tortillas and it's not bad with either but we prefer the corn ones, it's more authentic!


We love this recipe. It is a weekend morning staple in our house. In place of salsa we are using green chile sauce - New Mexicans use chile on nearly everything. We started with corn tortillas and changed over to whole wheat. Excellent either way.
