Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Feta cheese — Use a high-quality feta cheese for the best flavor. If you don't like feta, you can substitute it with goat cheese or queso fresco.
  • Black olives — Use pitted black olives for convenience. You can also substitute them with Kalamata olives or green olives.
  • Tortillas — Use small corn tortillas for an authentic Mexican flavor. If you can't find corn tortillas, you can use flour tortillas instead.

Tips & Tricks

  • To make the dish spicier, add some chopped jalapeno peppers or red pepper flakes to the tomato sauce.
  • You can also add some chopped fresh herbs, such as cilantro or parsley, to the dish for extra flavor.
  • If you don't have an oven-safe skillet, you can transfer the eggs to a baking dish before baking in the oven.
  • Serve the dish with some fresh avocado slices or guacamole for a creamy and delicious addition.
  • If you want to make the dish even healthier, you can use egg whites instead of whole eggs.

Serving advice

Serve the Huevos Rancheros hot, straight from the skillet. Garnish with some fresh herbs, such as cilantro or parsley, and serve with some fresh avocado slices or guacamole on the side.

Presentation advice

Serve the Huevos Rancheros in the skillet for a rustic and authentic presentation. You can also transfer the dish to a serving platter and garnish with some fresh herbs and avocado slices.
