Huevos rancheros (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈweβoz ranˈtʃeɾos], "rancher's eggs") is a breakfast dish consisting of eggs served in the style of the traditional large mid-morning fare on rural Mexican farms.[1][2]

The basic dish consists of fried eggs served upon lightly fried or charred corn or flour tortillas topped with a salsa fresca made of tomatoes, Chili peppers, onion, and cilantro. Refried beans, Mexican-style rice, and slices of avocado or guacamole are common accompaniments, with cilantro as a garnish.[3]

Variations

As the dish spread beyond Mexico variations using wheat flour tortillas instead of corn and pureed chili or enchilada sauce instead of tomato-chili salsa fresca have appeared.[3] Non-Mexican additions such as cheese, sour cream, and lettuce also have become common additions beyond the dish's native range.[4]

"Huevos divorciados" (divorced eggs) are simply two eggs served in the same style as huevos rancheros but with a different sauce for each egg – usually a salsa roja and a salsa verde.[5]

Somewhat similar dishes are huevos motuleños of Yucatan[6] and New Mexican enchiladas montadas.[7]

Another variation "Huevos ahogados" or (drowned eggs), is a traditional Mexican breakfast of eggs poached in a tomato-chile salsa.[8]
