Huevos Rancheros

Lodge Cast iron / September 7, 2016

A soft fried egg atop flavorful chorizo and beans and garnished with fresh cilantro and lime is a tasty way to start the weekend. 

Nothing says brunch quite like homemade huevos rancheros for two. Here’s how we like to prepare this Mexican classic.

Huevos Rancheros cooked on a cast iron griddle.

Prep Time

5-8 minutes

Cook Time

10 minutes

Servings

4

Ingredients

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • ½ can refried beans
  • ¼ lb chorizo, ground
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup salsa
  • avocado slices
  • lime wedges

Tip: When frying eggs, always be sure to let the bottom set before attempting to flip. A thin metal spatula works great, and is perfectly safe on cast iron cookware.

  2. Brush lightly with cooking oil and add the tortillas, flipping once until crispy and slightly puffy.
  3. Set 2 tortillas on each plate. Spoon a layer of refried beans onto each tortilla.
  4. Mix half the cilantro with the chorizo. Cook on the griddle for 6-8 mins. and then place atop the refried beans.
  5. Crack eggs onto remaining chorizo grease and cook to desired texture
