I love mexican food

Mexican food has always been my cuisine of choice. It use to be soft white tortillas loaded with it's soaked beans, avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, and meat. But, it's just as good. I spent spring break during my sophomore year of college on a humanitarian trip in Mexico. We stayed with local families from our church - and ate all three meals with them. It was heaven. Beans and eggs for breakfast? Pure genius.

Huevos Rancheros
I served this for dinner, but it would be a fabulous brunch on a lazy Saturday morning.

Serves 4, easily doubled

4 corn tortillas
4 eggs
1 cup salsa
1 cup black beans
shredded lettuce
avocado, diced

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Lay tortillas flat on a cookie sheet. Spray with coconut oil (or spread on some ghee) and sprinkle with sea salt. Put them in the oven and let them warm up while you cook the eggs. Dump salsa and beans into a large skillet, stir and let it warm up for a minute or two. Make 4 holes in the salsa and crack the eggs into them. Turn the heat down to medium/low. Cover and cook until the eggs are done - about 5 minutes. Take out the tortillas from the oven and put them on each plate. Scoop the eggs/salsa/beans on top of each tortilla. Top with lettuce and avocado.



  1. We are so like-minded! I'm getting ready to post a TON of Mexican recipes on HMK!

    This recipe looks great :) Can I feature it on HMK?

  2. PS I've been to Guatemala a few times and I would eat beans and eggs for breakfast every morning!!!

  3. Oh yum! I love cooking Mexican food, I guess it helps that I live there. :)

    Nisha- Guatemalan food it good but it can't beat Mexican. It lacks spice.

  4. Seriously, beans and thing ever. I remember the first morning I was in Mexico and I was blown away by how amazing breakfast was. Refried beans, eggs, tortillas, and a smoothie. :)

  5. I love anything Mexican, especially Heuvos Rancheros. This looks easy and healthy.
