‘Huevos Rancheros’ always remind me of the three women that have impacted my life the most: my mom, my grandmother and my mother-in-law. My mother and grandmother loved Huevos Rancheros. Every time we went out for breakfast to a Mexican restaurant, they always ordered the Ranchero eggs. It also reminds me of my mother-in-law because it was the first breakfast she prepared the first time she visited us in the United States. I still remember the smell of tomatoes and peppers roasting on the ‘comal’ (flat griddle) for the sauce. So tasty! This is the recipe of how my mom-in-law made the Huevos Rancheros during that visit.

  • 1
    Roast the tomatoes, chiles, onion and garlic on a flat griddle or skillet at medium heat, until they start to sizzle. Remove from the stove and then transfer to a blender glass. Very carefully, blend the roasted tomatoes, peppers, onions and garlic until they blend well. Pour the sauce in a bowl and season with salt to taste.
  • 2
    In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil to medium heat. One by one, brown the tortillas with the hot oil for about 30 seconds on both sides, adding more oil when needed.
  • 3
    In the same skillet, cook one or two eggs to taste (sunny side up or scrambled) in a drip of olive oil; season with salt and ground black pepper.
  • 4
    To serve, place one of the browned tortillas on a plate. Place one of the eggs on top of the tortilla and top with the sauce.

  • To prevent the sauce from getting sour with the taste of burnt garlic, roast the garlic in its skin and then remove it before blending with the tomatoes.
