How to Make Huevos Rancheros Recipe
What I love about this recipe is that you control the individual portions. Which means that you can easily feed as little as two persons or a hungry crowd, just by doubling (or tripling) this recipe.
You’ll love the ease with which you’ll be able to assemble the Huevos Rancheros. Everything is layered upon a tortilla, which makes serving a breeze.
Start with chorizo. You can use bulk chorizo (see below) or use sausage links, that you have removed the casings.
To this, fry with cubed potatoes and canned green chilis.
As the potatoes cook, they become extremely flavorful and softened. The green chilis add lots of flavor.
Once cooked, it’s time to start layering the Huevos Rancheros.
First, prepare your baking dish with nonstick spray.
Place each tortilla in a single layer on the bottom the baking dish.
Mound the potato mixture on each tortilla.
And, top each with grated cheese.
Make an indentation in the center of each mound.
Next, crack an egg and place this in the indentation.
Bake the Chorizo Huevos Rancheros in a preheated 425 degrees F oven for approximately 20 minutes or until opaque.
Remove from the oven and garnish with homemade guacamole and pico de gallo. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
