Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , peeled and chopped
  • 1 red pepper (or capsicum), deseeded and diced
  • 15- ounce | 410-grams can crushed tomatoes (use fire-roasted if you can)*
  • 10- ounces | 300-grams jar salsa dip (mild, medium or hot -- your choice!)**
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (add more if you like it hot)
  • Salt and pepper , to season
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 jalapeño , sliced, to serve
  • Avocado slices , to serve
  • Crumbled cotija , queso fresco or feta cheese
  • Handful of cilantro leaves , chopped or whole, to serve
  • 4 corn or flour tortillas , to serve

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a non stick pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the onion, garlic and red peppers for about 5 minutes, or until peppers are just beginning to soften and onion becomes transparent.
  • Add in tomatoes, salsa dip, cumin, cayenne (if using), salt and pepper to your taste, and bring to the boil. Reduce heat down to low and continue to simmer for a further 4-5 minutes, or until the sauce begins to reduce down. (Add in 1/4 cup of water if it's too thick for your liking). Taste test the sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Make 4 wells in the tomato sauce mixture and crack eggs as quickly as you can into each to ensure an even cooking time.
  • Continue cooking, undisturbed, until done to your liking. (For faster cooking, cover pan or skillet with a lid, checking every so often that they don't over cook).
  • While eggs are cooking, heat your tortillas in the microwave (or a preheated oven), until warmed through.
  • Serve eggs with sauce over tortillas, with sliced jalapeños, avocados, cheese and cilantro leaves.

Notes

*Substitute crushed tomatoes for 2 large, vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
**I use salsa dip purely for added flavour benefits. This is not a traditional Huevos Rancheros recipe, however, and you do not have to add it in if you don't want to. If adding salsa dip, make sure it's one you know and love already!
