Healthy Huevos Rancheros

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 4 eggs

  • 4 corn or gluten-free brown rice tortillas (I like these)

Topping options:

  • grated organic cheddar cheese (I like raw goat milk cheese like this one)

  • chopped scallions

  • chopped parsley or cilantro

  • vegan cheese such as Daiya

  • greek or goat milk yogurt mixed with lime and chopped cilantro


  1. Heat tortillas in oven or toaster just until soft.

  2. Warm salsa and black beans in a nonstick pan.

  4. Place two warm tortillas side-by-side on a warmed plate and slide eggs and half the salsa and beans onto the tortillas.

  5. Repeat with remaining eggs.

  6. Garnish with your choice of toppings.
