Huevos Rancheros are the most perfect protein packed breakfast or brunch! They are the answer any time I am craving extra protein or a super hearty, quick meal. I can’t resist them on a brunch menu, either. I have been perfecting my Huevos Rancheros at home, I am excited to share this recipe with you!
This recipe is completely customizable to each taste. I like my breakfast to be mildly seasoned and not spicy, hence this is my version of it but one can add extra seasonings and peppers to make it spicy as you desire. Beans and eggs are main component of this dish and I love the freshness of pico de gallo, its definitely worth the effort if you have access to great tomatoes at home, if not store brought also works wonders! If you are following low calorie diet like me then skip the cheese! You can make this easily dairy free and gluten free dish. If you are following keto, replace the tortilla with keto tortilla and add the cheese! This is perfect filling meal for slow weekend mornings when you want a filling protein packed breakfast or brunch that is as good as you would get at a restaurant! What are you waiting for? Go ahead make this for breakfast tomorrow!
