These Huevos Rancheros are the perfect meatless meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The egg yolks mingle with tomatoes and cheese over crispy corn tortillas – what could be better?!

My friend Deysi taught me how to make this authentic Mexican recipe, and I’m glad she did because it was such a wonderful change from the usual egg dishes. Plus, it’s really easy to make.

Huevos rancheros remind me of breakfast tacos – only you eat them with a knife and fork. This version tops them with lettuce and cilantro for freshness and crumbled cotija cheese. Also, this dish is naturally gluten-free.

Does huevos rancheros have meat?

Huevos rancheros can have meat, but my version is vegetarian. You can definitely add some if you prefer. These huevos rancheros would be delicious with turkey chorizo.

How to Make Huevos Rancheros

There are just four main steps – easy!

  1. Salsa: Sauté the onions and then add the tomatoes, chilis, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few minutes, and then set aside and keep warm.
  2. Tortillas: Lightly spray the corn tortillas with oil and heat over medium-high heat in a skillet. When they get crispy and golden brown, they’re ready.
  3. Eggs: Cook your eggs sunny-side up on medium-low heat.
  4. Assembly: Place two tortillas each on two plates, top with half of the tomatoes, two eggs, lettuce, cilantro, and cheese. Enjoy!


  • If you don’t like runny yolks, feel free to scramble the eggs instead.
  • Save time and use jarred salsa instead of cooking the tomatoes and chilies.
  • If you don’t have fresh tomatoes, sub in canned diced tomatoes.
  • Swap the cotija or queso blanco for shredded cheddar.
  • Make dairy-free by eliminating the cheese.
  • Add chorizo for extra protein. Or if you want to keep them vegetarian, use soy chorizo.
  • Add black beans for more fiber.
  • For extra spice, top the tortillas with fresh jalapeños.
  • Serve this meal withsliced avocados on the side.
