Calories: 283kcal


  • 2 cups Ranchero Sauce
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 8 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup queso fresco crumbled, Cotija is perfect, or Feta cheese
  • Fresh cilantro chopped, for garnish
  • Easy Gourmet Beans for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 200 F.
  • In a saucepan, warm the ranchero sauce over low heat.
  • In a large, heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over high heat, until the oil is shimmering.
  • One at a time, fry the tortillas just until they begin to crisp, about 30 to 40 seconds (they don't need to be crunchy). Carefully flip after about 20 seconds.
  • Transfer to paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Overlap 2 tortillas on each serving plate and keep warm in the oven.
  • Discard the oil in the pan.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat.
  • Crack 4 of the eggs into the pan.
  • Season with salt and pepper, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the whites are set, about 2 minutes for sunny-side-up eggs.
  • Transfer 2 eggs, per serving (1 per each tortilla) to the plates.
  • Repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
  • For each serving, spoon about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the warm Ranchero Sauce over the eggs.
  • Top with the queso fresco, and sprinkle over some cilantro.
  • Serve immediately, with the refried beans on the side.
