Huevos rancheros (Mexican eggs)

Serves: 2
Cooking Time: 20 mins



  • 15ml (1 tbsp) olive/avocado oil
  • 1 x 420g tin chopped tomatoes
  • ¼ onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • pinch chilli powder
  • 1 chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • Cheddar, grated, to serve



For the sauce, heat the oil in a pan and add the remaining ingredients. Once the sauce is boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.


In a separate pan, heat a tiny bit of oil and fry the tortillas for about a second on each side. Transfer to a plate until needed.


Fry the eggs sunny side up, leaving them not quite cooked on top. Place a fried egg on each tortilla and pour the hot sauce over to cover the eggs (the sauce will cook the top of the egg).


Serve immediately, sprinkled with the Cheddar.
