Mexican ranch-style eggs

Softened corn tortillas layered with creamy GOYA®  Refried Beans and fried eggs, then smothered in velvety-smooth tomato-chili sauce, Huevos Rancheros are a classic Mexican breakfast that can happily be eaten morning, noon or night. Be sure to add a hefty splash of the Ranchera Sauce. Chock full of GOYA® Tomato Sauce, onions and GOYA® Whole  Jalapeno Peppers, this tangy, mildly spicy sauce adds authentic Mexican flavor to every bite.

For the Ranchera Sauce:

Step 1

In bowl of food processor, add onion, jalapeño peppers and garlic; Process until smooth, about 2 minutes.


Step 2

Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat; add pureed onion mixture and cumin. Cook until mixture turns light golden brown and fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Cook until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes more; season with Adobo; keep warm. (Note, to make sauce head of time, see tip below).

For the eggs:

Step 3

Heat oven to 200F. Heat 1 tsp. oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add one tortilla; cook until tortilla inflates and turns light golden on both sides, flipping once, about 2 minutes. Transfer tortilla to large sheet of foil. Repeat with remaining tortillas, adding oil in 1 tsp. measurements if pan becomes dry. Loosely wrap tortillas in foil and transfer to oven to keep warm.

Step 4

Divide remaining 2 tbsp. oil between 2 medium skillets over medium-high heat. Add 4 eggs to each skillet; season with adobo. Cook eggs until whites are set and yolks are runny; about 3 minutes.

Step 5

To assemble Huevos Rancheros, divide tortillas between 4 serving plates; spread each tortilla with 2 tbsp. refried beans. Top each with 2 eggs; drizzle with sauce, then sprinkle with cheese. Serve with slices of avocado, if desired.
