Expert Tips

  • Refried black beans can also be used in this recipe. Purchase them or make your own by draining and rinsing a can of black beans, then mashing the beans with a potato masher.
  • The basic huevos rancheros (“rancher’s eggs”) recipe is a fried egg served on a fried corn tortilla and topped with salsa, but the possibilities are endless. Make this recipe even heartier by adding some crumbled cooked chorizo sausage.
