Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros

This Mexican-style egg main dish is made by poaching eggs in a spicy tomato-and-black-bean mixture and topping them with shredded cheese and green onions.

  • Yield: 2 servings


  • 1 none (14.5-ounce ) can no-salt-added tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, drained
  • 1 none (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 none eggs
  • 2 tablespoons (1/2 ounce) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions


Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large nonstick skillet; stir well, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer the tomato mixture for 10 minutes.

Break each egg into a custard cup, and slip eggs from cups into tomato mixture. Cover and simmer for 6 minutes or until the eggs are done. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon.

Spoon half of the tomato mixture onto each of 2 plates, and top with eggs. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cheese and 1 tablespoon green onions over each serving.
