My husband likes huevos rancheros, and I thought I would make these up as an interesting diversion from the usual eggs he has.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a bowl, lightly beat eggs with adobo, pepper, jalapenos and sour cream.
  3. If using fresh corn tortillas, fry them in a shallow amount of lard or vegetable oil on both sides until they crisp up, then drain on paper toweling.
  4. Place 2 crispy tortillas on a baking sheet.
  5. In a small skillet, scramble the eggs in 1 tbsp lard until just lightly set.
  6. Divide eggs evenly among both tortillas.
  7. Top with remaining tortillas.
  8. Spoon 1/4 cup sauce onto the top of each stacked tortilla, and sprinkle with cheese.
  9. Bake stacked tortillas for 3-5 minutes at 400F or until cheese is melted and eggs are hot.
  10. Serve garnished with additional jalapenos or chilies, if desired.

I used chopped green chilies, queso blanco, and salsa, topped with a few hot pickled pepper slices - yum! Made for ZWT5.

Great way to serve up eggs. I used a couple premade tostada shells I had and some black bean salsa. Thanks Sue, you Saucy Senorita!

This was a great breakfast! I used jalapenos and pepper jack cheese to get a nice little kick. The taste was great. Thanks for the recipe for the lovely breakfast treat.
