Mighty Mexican Huevos Rancheros

How “authentic” this is, i couldn’t tell you but when i woke up this morning i knew i wanted something filling, spicy and full of flavour. Also calorie wise, it’s pretty low, i think i worked it out at around 380cals which when you are trying to watch what you are eating like i am is fantastic. It also keeps you really full so i often make this around 11am as a brunch dish and keeps me going all the way till dinner. In short, cheap, filling, healthy grub. What more could you possibly want?

Well apart from a room full of puppies or a bucket of cash.

You will need for two…

  • Flour tortillas
  • Tin of tomatos
  • Red onion
  • Half a red pepper
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 25gs of grated cheese
  • 1 tblsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp ground corriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground caynne pepper
  • Drizzle of sour cream
  • pinch of sugar
  • seasoning
  • Frylite/oil


Fry your chopped onions on a low heat so soft and delicious, add your chopped pepper and garlic (i like to grate my garlic but you can chop or crush if preffered).

Once everything is a bit soft, add the paste and stir through, add your tinned toms, sugar and seasoning and let it cook down on a low heat.

Make two “wells” in the mixture and crack in your eggs, you will effectively be be poaching them but keep an eye on them. I found spreading the white around after a few minutes meant they cooked a bit quicker.

Warm up your tortilla and place flat on the plate, put the tomato on the middle and add a little sour cream (if you want it). next place your egg on top then top with a nice cheddar cheese or the nice spicy mexican stuff if you can get it.
