Baked Huevos Rancheros
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.
Huevos Rancheros with Spicy Ham Sofrito
Huevos rancheros are elevated by adding crispy smoked ham.
Black Bean Huevos Rancheros
Chef Jason Knibb likes to eat huevos rancheros before going out for a morning run down the slopes; the chiles wake him up. If he's in a hurry, he'll fold the eggs and beans into the tortillas to make breakfast burritos.
White Bean Huevos Rancheros
This is a lighter take on classic huevos rancheros, which can include plenty of refried black beans. In his version, Neal Fraser uses simmered whole white beans; here, the beans are mashed with ham to form the base of the dish, then piled with corn tortillas, fried eggs and queso fresco before broiling. A warm tomato salsa tops it all off.
