  1. 1.
    Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

    In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the diced onion and bell pepper until softened.

    Crack an egg onto each tortilla and bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your desired doneness.

  • Smoked paprika — Opt for high-quality smoked paprika to enhance the smoky flavor in the dish.
  • Fresh cilantro — Add the cilantro just before serving to preserve its vibrant color and fresh taste.

Serve the Haute Huevos Rancheros on individual plates, ensuring that each guest receives a beautifully plated tortilla topped with a perfectly baked egg. Accompany the dish with a side of avocado slices and a drizzle of the cream sauce. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves for an elegant touch.
