Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Blini — If you don't have access to pre-made blini, you can make your own by following a simple recipe online. Ensure they are thin and cooked until golden brown.
  • Tomato sauce — Opt for a canned tomato sauce with no added sugar or seasonings for a more authentic flavor.
  • Sour cream — Use full-fat sour cream for a rich and creamy taste.
  • Dill — Fresh dill is preferred, but dried dill works well too. Adjust the amount according to your preference for the herb's flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier kick, add more hot sauce or sprinkle some chili flakes on top.
  • Customize your Huevos Rancheros by adding additional toppings such as avocado slices, chopped cilantro, or grated cheese.
  • Serve with a side of fresh salad or pickles to add a refreshing element to the dish.
  • If you prefer a milder flavor, reduce the amount of hot sauce or omit it altogether.
  • Experiment with different types of beans such as kidney beans or pinto beans for added variety.

Serving advice

Serve the Russian-style Huevos Rancheros hot, straight from the pan. The combination of warm blini, creamy sour cream, and flavorful tomato sauce is best enjoyed immediately after preparation.

Presentation advice

Arrange the blini with the egg on top, surrounded by the tomato sauce and black beans. Drizzle a little extra sour cream on the plate and sprinkle some fresh dill over the dish for an appealing presentation.
