Huevos Rancheros with Salsa Verde and Refried Black Beans

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This Mexican breakfast is utterly delicious and a cinch to make, if you have a few of the essentials on hand. By keeping a supply of corn tortillas in the freezer, and canned refried black beans and salsa verde in your pantry, you’ll be able to whip these up in no time, and you’ll be oh so happy as a result. Don’t feel as though you must limit it to just a breakfast food, as it makes for a yummy lunch or simple dinner as well. I prefer home made salsa verde over a bottled or canned version, but the store bought stuff will do. I’ll be posting a recipe for the salsa verde post haste.


2 corn tortillas

1/2 cup well seasoned, canned refried black beans( add a little sauteed, minced onion, toasted, ground cumin seeds and a dash of hot sauce or cayenne pepper to taste).

1/2 cup salsa verde

1 Tablespoon olive oil

2 eggs

1/4 cup grated cheddar or queso fresca, crumbled

fresh cilantro and sliced avocado for toppings

salt and pepper to taste


In a small saucepan, heat the seasoned, refried beans. Do the same with the salsa.

Place the tortillas in a large non stick skillet. Cook over medium heat, just until heated through. 

Fry the eggs in the olive oil.Season with salt and pepper. Spread the tortillas with the refried beans. Top each tortilla with an egg. Pour the hot salsa over the eggs. Sprinkle with the cheese and garnish with cilantro and avocado slices.Serve immediately.

Yield: 2 servings

  1. Hi Fanny, So sorry to be sooo remiss in responding! I opened a restaurant and have put my blog on the back burner…for now, but hope to get back to it someday soon! Our restaurant is called Provecho, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. You can read reviews of us on Tripadvisor, which, fortunately have been very good. I’m the chef and pour my heart into the preparation of each dish, so it’s great to have good feedback.Thank you for following, and I hope to be back soon! Joanna, aka Kitchenclown

  2. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and net and this is really irritating. A good website with interesting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for keeping this site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.
