How To Make Huevos Rancheros
It is quite simple to make this recipe. Before you start preheat your oven to 420℉/200℃. The recipe is a symphony in two parts.
Part one starts with baking a number of the ingredients. Take a cast-iron skillet and bake the tomatoes, onion, and kidney beans in a pan until the onion is soft and translucent.
Take off the heat and set aside.
Part two has everything to do with the tortilla and skillet. You need to push a small tortilla in these super cute mini cast-iron skillets.
We are making two so repeat for the other skillet. Then put two slices of ham on the tortilla. You do not need a baking product in the skillets.
Now add half of the bean mixture on top of the tortilla. Repeat this series of steps for the second skillet.
Be sure to leave some room in the middle of your skillet so you can crack an egg on top of the bean mixture.
In the oven at 420 ℉/200℃ for about 15 to 18 minutes depending on how well done you like the egg. Serve immediately.
Can You Make Vegetarian Huevos Rancheros?
Absolutely! All you need to do is omit the serrano ham and leave it out of this recipe and you have a great vegetarian version of this Mexican Breakfast.
Can I Make Huevos Rancheros With Corn Tortillas?
Yes, you can! Especially if you eat gluten-free or are gluten-intolerant then corn tortillas are a great option to use.
Corn tortillas are usually the same size as small flour tortillas and will also get nice and crunchy when you bake them in the oven in the small skillets.
When you are looking for more tasty gluten-free tortillas you can make:
Can You Make Ahead Huevos Rancheros?
In fact, you can make this recipe ahead. Just make the bean mixture and let it cool completely before you store it in the fridge or freezer.
It is possible to make the whole recipe including the tortilla but I do not recommend it. When you combine all the ingredients but do not bake the tortillas can get really soggy.
You can prepare the whole dish including the tortillas and bake it but the tortillas can get really hard when you reheat them.
The best way is to prepare the mixture and put it together in a skillet with tortilla when you are ready to serve it.
How To Reheat Huevos Rancheros?
It is really easy to reheat the bean mixture. When it is frozen let it thaw first else take it out of the fridge and reheat in a cast-iron skillet.
It might require some added water when you warm it. Then take a small tortilla and push it in the small cast-iron skillets and follow the recipe as described.
