Last month we were lucky enough to celebrate my husband’s cousin’s 40th birthday with friends and family from afar, in Mexico. It’s always fun when you get invited to do cool things (you might not be doing otherwise) for other people’s milestone birthdays!
We not only had a blast but enjoyed lots of tasty food while we were there too, including Huevos Rancheros for breakfast every single morning! It was so good and so fitting that our travel group has reminisced about the Huevos Rancheros several times since returning home.
So, as a food blogger, I decided to do the obvious—try to recreate our memorable Mexican breakfast and share it with you. Enjoy!

Should I drain the water before mashing the beans?
I will probably be making this dish A LOT. Seriously delicious. The salsa is incredible! Thank you for such a great recipe! Love it!
I can never seem to get the food for life brand corn tortillas to warm up right. They always seem to break on us. Any tips?
Hi Joni. When thawed, I wrap them in a damp towel and briefly warm them in the microwave. I don’t microwave much, but I do find it works well for this.
I have a slight obsession to Mexican food AND breakfast, so this is my dream meal. Can’t wait to try it!! Thanks for sharing!
We’re all about breakfast for dinner, and if it has a Mexican spin, all the better! Trader Joe’s has a great Hatch Valley Salsa (green chile) to give it a New Mexico spin. This may be tonight’s dinner…
This looks amazing!!
I couldn’t click fast enough when I saw “shortcut refried beans.” This sounds really good!
