Easy Huevos Rancheros

DH saw a recipe ages ago for huevos ranchos that he wanted us to have, but I totally forgot about it until I saw this.

Again, I made the foolish mistake of thinking that the kids would like it. (When will I learn?)  DD1(4.5) ate the avocado and the beans. I’m not sure that DD2(2) actually ate any of it, but I can at least blame that on teething.  DH & I both liked it, so if I make it again, it will just be for us & I will include the kale that I omitted because I thought the kids wouldn’t like it!

Served 2 adults & 2 small children


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • pinch freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 15 oz. cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup chopped corriander
  • 1 package small corn tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh salsa (purchased or homemade)
  • 1 lime, sliced


  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add onion and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the sweet potato, cumin, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potato has softened, about 7 minutes.
  4. Put the kettle on to boild some water to poach the eggs.
  5. Stir in garlic and kale, and saute another 5 minutes until kale has wilted.
  6. Stir in beans and cilantro and saute until beans are heated through.
  7. Put the boiled water into another large pan , One by one, crack the eggs into a ramekin & then lower into the water. Bring the water back to a gentle simmer, then turn the heat off & leave for 3 minutes.
  8. Place 1-2 tortillas on each plate. Divide vegetable-bean mixture on top of tortillas. Place eggs on top of veggies. Serve with avocado, salsa, and lime.
