ranch eggs two ways


Huevos rancheros basically means "ranch eggs" because they were usually made with what was around and that was usually beans, chile and tortillas. It is by far one of my favorites to eat and to serve.



I like flour tortillas.



Others like corn tortillas. Besides the subtle difference in the tortillas the flavor is the same - great!



Every now and again I enjoy a steamed fish, its light, tasty and packed with nutrients.



I put a few slices of white onion and poured a little fresh squeezed orange juice, salt and black pepper. Picked apart with your fingers is the only way to roll.

Jeannie said...

OMG! Those eggs are just so fantastic! I love anything eggs:D

Jenn said...

Two equally appealing meals. Is it crazy to want fish and eggs at the same time?

daphne said...

this is the first time I am hearing range eggs- is it similar to poached eggs on another dish? I love eggs- so this looks like another great way to use them!

Food and Fate said...

I love eggs and a nice twist from plain poached eggs (which I love)! thanks! maria!

Jojo said...

I've never eaten huevos rancheros. Ever! Am I missing out?

Angie's Recipes said...

Joan Nova said...

Me gusta los huevos rancheros...how do you get them to look so puffed up and perfect?

doggybloggy said...

joan: its all in how you put them in the water (with a little white vinegar and salt)- swirl the boiling water around with a whisk and put the eggs in from a cup - I do two at a time - the swirling water causes them to fold over themselves creating the quenelle shape

Elliott said...

You with your poached eggs. All the yolky goodness.

Oh. Yes. Please.

Tangled Noodle said...

I mentioned in a previous how enthralled I was by a photo of poached eggs. I'd like to think this huevos rancheros were for me! ;-)

Keep 'em coming!

Tangled Noodle said...

Could I have possibly made more grammatical errors in that last comment? I don't deserve these eggs.

momgateway said...

How creative...must try this...my son loves eggs!

Marjie said...

I like my eggs calmer (translation: more bland) in the morning. I guess it's all in what you're used to, right? Either way, your photos are always delightful and drool inducing!

dawn said...

do you like pickled eggs? i crave them so much.

Viviane Bauquet Farre / Food and Style said...

You've got me... These "Ranch Eggs" are just mouthwatering!

theUngourmet said...

I'd go for the first one. Yum! Great poached eggs. I need to practice!

Lulu Carmichael said...

I'm with you, I like the flour tortilla's best. I made chorizo and scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning but was out of tortillas so I served it with Mexican Corn Cakes. Yummy!

snugs said...

you consistently poach better than anyone I have ever seen..

Bob said...

Nice, huevos rancheros are the bomb. Now that I'm eating fish I've been meaning to do some steamed.

biz319 said...

Okay, I am all over the ranch eggs with CORN tortillas :D, but please put the fish away, it's staring at me! :D

Nutmeg Nanny said...

Those huevos rancheros look awesome! I'm going to have to pass on the fish but it does look beautiful :)

Justin Marx said...

clearly we were separated at birth ... rancheros and whole fish ... can't beat it.

Joie de vivre said...

Both look incredible. I need a tutorial on how to poach eggs as beautifully as you do.

Joanne said...

One thing I have never done: cooked a whole fish.

But eggs? Eggs I can handle. Looks delicious.

Jhonny walker said...

The eggs and the fish...both look gorgeous. I am such a trout addict. Loved the way of favoring it up the way you did!

Mo Diva said...

Christo you make the most beautiful poached eggs ever! I need to master this technique!
and I have never had whole fish but your presentation has my mouth watering

Vickie said...

These gorgeous photos have inspired me to try the traditional method of poaching (at last).

I've never been very crazy about huevos rancheros because they always use refried beans where I'm from. Yours look a lot more appetizing with whole beans.

Chef Fresco said...

We love some huevos rancheros! yum yum! Yours look delicious!

Lea Ann said...

I'll take two orders of those huevos. Fabulous yummy photo.

tasteofbeirut said...

Love huevos rancheros, but I love "bayd bel-banadoora" more ! basically the Lebanese version of huevos rancheros!
What can I say? food is our identity, no?

Heff said...

Looks GREAT.

Damn, I would've bet money that you entered the Culinary Smackdown this time :(

Mini Baker said...

Bridgett said...

I will definitely take a plate of those huevos rancheros. I have been craving something like that lately and yours look delightful.

5 Star Foodie said...

Those eggs sound awesome for my dinner tonight!

buffalodick said...

I love them with chorizo..thinking of eggs for supper tonight!

Table Talk said...

I am a corn tortilla girl, and the spicier the better! Now that's how the morning should begin.

The Food Hunter said...

Both look great.

Stella said...

I love breakfasts like this with beans and eggs. Especially with a runny yolk and the beans make me feel like the cholesterol is being taken care of! My Cauldron Boy would love this too...

Kathleen said...

This is one of my favorite breakfasts! Sans the fish though. I know its healthy but even on a sober stomach, fish isn't my friend in the mornings!

TavoLini said...

Man, I could eat those eggs all day. I'm hosting another brunch on Sunday, but am worried I'd put off my crowd by serving something like huevos rancheros.

What a pain to poach 20 eggs...you think I could bake them in the beans or something?

Stacey Snacks said...

Those little puffs are beautiful.
I think eggs are the perfect food.
I like to eat fish with my hands....no better way.

Chow and Chatter said...

yep flapjacks are granola use Brits just have different words, oh I want the fish, love whole fish like that
thanks for the kind words on our baby lol

MaryMioh said...
