Traditional huevos rancheros are fried eggs served over tortillas and smothered in sauce and cheese. Here, Grace Parisi bakes eggs, tortilla chips and cheese in a seasoned tomato sauce in individual gratin dishes. For more sophisticated eaters, swap pepper Jack for the Monterey Jack to get a spicy kick.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  3. 1/2 small green bell pepper, finely diced
  4. 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. One 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  9. 1/4 cup water
  10. 3 cups tortilla chips
  11. 8 large eggs
  12. 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack
  13. Chopped cilantro, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic and oregano. Season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring, until lightly browned, 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and water and simmer for 5 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  2. Spoon the sauce into 4 individual, shallow baking dishes and arrange the tortilla chips around the sides. Crack 2 eggs into each dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Set the dishes on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve right away.
