Start the day sunny side up! Follow this easy huevos rancheros recipe and you can have a delicious breakfast of corn tortillas, avocados, pico de gallo, crispy chorizo and chipotle sour cream topped with a sunny side up egg quicker than you can say Cinco de Mayo!
We love having people over. Have you been to a Filipino party? There’s so much food it’s ridiculous. Anyway, we had lots of leftover restaurant style corn tortilla chips (among other things…embutido, anyone?) from one of our parties which pretty much began our foray into huevos rancheros territory.
But allow me to backtrack a bit. We love huevos rancheros. We order it whenever it’s on the menu so it’s fair to say we’ve had our fair share – traditional, fusion or in between. I won’t claim this version is any of those but I will be so bold as to say it is the easiest!
Use ready-made chips and prep everything ahead so when the craving hits, all you need to do is fry that perfect sunny side up egg, assemble and enjoy.
Prep everything or use leftovers!
Most of the components in this huevos rancheros recipe can be made ahead, like the pico de gallo. Great news is everything will keep for a week or so in the fridge so you’d have a week’s supply of huevos rancheros possibilities.
We used sliced avocados here but you can also use guacamole (leftovers or otherwise).

What, no beans?
This doesn’t have refried beans in it though. No reason, we’re just not big fans. But by all means add it in or serve it on the side.
What this dish has, however, is amazing crispy chorizo – get a piece of chorizo, dice it up and cook until nice and crispy. This also has an incredible chipotle sour cream sauce (the same one we used for The Ultimate Nachos recipe we shared a while back) for the ultimate kick.

Once you have everything you need then all that’s left is cooking the egg and assembling your perfect plate – how little or how much of everything you add is totally up to you.
Then break that egg yolk, watch it run through your plate and make everything creamy, then take that first bite. It is an incredible way to start the day. In time for Cinco de Mayo too!
