  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 Cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chopped jalapeno (optional)

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat oil in a medium skillet and saute onions, green peppers, and garlic for 5 minutes. If using hot pepper, add to skillet, and cook for another minute.

Add tomato, oregano, salt, and black pepper to skillet and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until tomato softens.

In a separate skillet, break eggs into 4 places and cook until the bottom of the eggs are set and the whites are almost cooked, about 8 minutes. 

Cover and cook until whites are firm and yolks are lightly cooked. Transfer tomatoes to serving plate with eggs on top.

 
 
 

 

Huevos Rancheros Shopping Tip

Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmers' market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Huevos Rancheros Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
