Huevos Rancheros: Breakfast of Champions South of the Border

When my kids were growing up, we rarely had the time to sit down to breakfast on weekdays, for all the usual reasons. We’re all in a hurry to get to school and work. So, weekday breakfast always meant cereals or oatmeal, or bacon and eggs if we can manage it. Weekends, on the other hand, were for luxurious, handcrafted brunches that will fill you to the brim, like these huevos rancheros.


As far as I know, huevos rancheros or “ranchers’ eggs” are a staple breakfast dish in Mexico, especially in the rural areas. I imagine if you’re a rancher, you’d need to eat something hearty to help you face your day of handling cattle. This dish is certainly filling. It’s perfect for weekend mornings, when you can take it easy and there’s no need to rush.
