Huevos Rancheros translates as “Rancher’s eggs”. It is a rural Mexican farm’s mid morning breakfast of fried eggs and salsa, traditionally served on corn or flour tortilla. Making huevos rancheros at home is super simple and speedy. First you make the tomato salsa, then pop the eggs in the sauce. The fresh salsa works a treat with the beautifully, runny-yolked eggs. Smashed avos, coriander and fresh lime completes this colourful and very satisfying dish. It is a great meal to serve at anytime of the day!
