Huevos Rancheros is one of my husband’s favorite things to order at our local Mexican restaurant. Much to his dismay, it’s only available on the lunch menu. We eat so much tex-mex at home, I figured it was about time I gave this classic peasant dish a shot. I had picked some up chorizo at the grocery store last week – so I went ahead and worked it into the recipe. The fat that rendered off the sausage was perfect for cooking the onions – wafting porky goodness throughout the entire dish.

A pretty easy breakfast to throw together on a weekend morning. And, it surely mixes up the pancakes and sausage routine. Also makes for a wonderfully easy dinner, as most folks already have these items on hand. Try this soon!

    We love huevos rancheros, but I usually make my vegetarian and just use black beans. Joey would die of happiness if I made them with chorizo!

    Mmmm. I love these! I have yet to make them at home. I suppose I should give it a whirl!

    I love chorizo! Where do you find it over here? I live in Central PA, but don’t mind traveling a few hours for good meat.

      They actually carry a higher quality chorizo at my local megamart now. But, whenever I go to Annapolis/DC I stock up on the good stuff at Whole Foods or Wegmans. If I were in PA, that’s definitely where I’d go first!

    I soften a cut up potato in the microwave, then add it to cooking spicy chorizo so the juices saturate the potatoes. Add that to the above dish and you’ll close your eyes at that first bite, after too!
    Use a warmed up flour tortilla for a breakfast burrito.
    Remember, not all chorizo tastes the same, bland, mild and spicy, quality. It’s the predominate taste, so find the best for your taste buds.
