Huevos Rancheros

My husband started a new medecine for his Crohn’s disease.  His condition isn’t so bad – he doesn’t have any active signs of the disease, but there are a few foods his intestines can’t tolerate.  Like eggs. And some dairy.  And sweet food in the morning.  Thankfully, the new medecine helps with this.  Which means, Breakfast Foods On The Blog!!!!

Until now, if I wanted to make fancy breakfast food, I had to wait until company came over.  The thought of making breakfast for one was kind of depressing, so I hardly went all out on breakfast just for myself.  Now, we have pancakes just about every Sunday.  I made these huevos rancheros a few weeks ago, and they made for a satisfying, filling breakfast.  I love how the black beans added an extra boost of protein.

original recipe

Huevos Rancheros

Serving Size: 2

Huevos Rancheros


2 Tbs olive oil
4 6-inch flour tortillas
⅓ c refried beans, warmed (I used this recipe with black beans)
4 eggs
¼ c salsa (recipe follows)
1 clove garlic
¼ c roughly chopped white onion
½ jalapeno pepper, seeded (adjust according to heat tolerance)
small handful of cilantro
4 ripe tomatoes, seeds and inner flesh removed
1 Tbs lime juice
Salt and pepper


  1. In a large cast iron skillet (or frying pan), heat oil over medium high heat. Pan fry tortillas until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Set tortillas on a plate. Spread refried beans over the tops of the tortillas. Fry the eggs to desired doneness. Place an egg on top of each bean-covered tortilla. Top with salsa. Serve immediately.
  2. For the salsa: Place garlic, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro in a food processor. Blend until ingredients are finely chopped. Add tomatoes, and pulse a few times until they are chopped, but not mushy. Place salsa in a bowl. Stir in lime juice, and season with salt and pepper.
