Expert Tips

Huevos Rancheros, or "rancher's eggs," refers to any egg dish served on tortillas.

Our hearty version of Huevos Rancheros features chorizo sausage, a highly seasoned pork sausage flavored with garlic, chili powder and other spices. If the little "rancheros" in your house won't eat spicy sausage, use a mild pork sausage instead.
