Huevos Rancheros are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast. It is a super hearty, filling meal that is loaded with flavor. The Mexican Huevos Rancheros start off with my Homemade Refried Black Beans. They are then served with a flour tortilla, a fried egg then my Homemade Pico de Gallo.

To make this recipe even easier prep the beans and pico de gallo in advance. If you are in a time crunch canned refried beans or jared salsa can be used in place of the homemade beans and homemade salsa.

The best thing we love about this huevos rancheros recipe is how versatile it is! We use what we have on hand. Sometime I serve these with leftover shredded Mexican chicken or beef from the night before. I also like serving it will salsa verde if I have a batch of that made up in the refrigerator.

This easy huevos rancheros recipe makes a quick and easy healthy breakfast or brunch recipe.

How to make Huevos Rancheros

  • Make the refried black beans: Add olive oil to a medium saucepan and heat over medium-high heat. Add in onions and saute until tender and golden brown 3-4 minutes. Add in garlic and saute for an additional minute. Stir in the spices and allow them to cook for one minute. Add in beans and chicken broth and turn the heat down to low. Simmer until the mixture has thickened a bit, 5-10 minutes. Mash the beans with the back of your spatula or with a potato masher. Make sure to leave some of the beans whole to keep a chunky texture.
  • Make homemade pico de gallo: This can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week! I like to make a big batch at the beginning of the week then use it as needed! To make this homemade salsa start by adding tomato, red onion, jalapeno, lime and cilantro to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat / fry tortillas: Heat a small skillet over medium high heat and fry the tortillas one at a time in a dry skillet until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.
  • Cook eggs: In a large skillet heat butter over medium high heat. Fry eggs to desired preference and season with salt and pepper.
  • Assemble: Serve fried eggs on top of the fried tortillas with refried black beans and pico de gallo. Top with any additional toppings if desired.
