Entertain your guests with Huevos Rancheros, a popular Mexican breakfast from the comfort of your own kitchen! It’s easy, wholesome, delicious, and naturally gluten-free. 

As promised earlier, I am keeping things Cinco de Mayo themed here presenting you today with Huevos Rancheros – rancher’s style eggs, a popular Mexican breakfast. I am pretty predictable when it comes to brunch as  99.99% of the time I order Mexican inspired dish like huevos rancheros, migas, or chilaquiles, all of which have tortillas, beans, eggs, salsa, and avocados in one form or the other. I don’t know exactly how traditional huevos rancheros is made because everyone does it differently…however, if you are into easy, homemade, wholesome brunch/breakfast/dinner – this recipe won’t disappoint. I



If you’ve never tried Huevos Rancheros, here’s how it’s typically assembled: corn tortilla is lightly fried and layered with refried beans (ps. easy, lard-free slowcooker refried beans), fried eggs, and topped with salsa (try: all purpose roasted salsa), cheese, avocados, and cilantro! What is it about brunch + eggs together? I think they naturally go together. Anyone else feel that way? I’d love to hear about your favorite brunch…



PS. Sunday is Mother’s Day and you should totally treat your mama with Huevos Rancheros..unless she has a sweet tooth, I’d recommend Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Waffles.
