For breakfast serve two Huevos rancheros per person with fresh fruit or papaya nectar. That'll get your day started!

Top Review by Parsley

Nice & filling breakfast or lunch! It really doesn't take that much more time to make than regular fried eggs and toast; it's just way better and not as boring. I used chunky salsa instead of taco sauce but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Will definitely be serving these up again. Thanx!
