What is Huevos Rancheros?

While the Middle East has Shakshuka and the Chinese have stir-fried tomatoes and egg dishes, Mexico has Huevos Rancheros. And it makes sense. Eggs pair really well with tomatoes. This combination works so well together, that you can even eat them for dinner.

How To Make Huevos Rancheros

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add the onion and green pepper, and cook until the onion and pepper are tender.

Step 2

Add the chopped tomatoes along with their juice, garlic, jalapeño, if using, oregano, hot pepper sauce, and water. Simmer, covered for 20 minutes.

Uncover. Break the eggs, one at a time, into a cup and then slip each into the sauce. Cover and simmer over low heat until the eggs are set, about 5 minutes.
