When we were growing up this is what we would eat; a typical Mexican Breakfast, consisted of Huevos Rancheros, Ranch Style Eggs, Refried Pinto Beans, Ham, or Bacon, usually thick style. Salsa, Chicharones, or as they call them here in the U.S.Pork Cracklings. We make them thick with chunks of meat and yummy crunchy crackly skin; and tortillas either corn or flour. Sometimes my grandmother would make chilaquiles but that is another recipe. It would all be washed down with a hot steaming cup of Mexican coffee, or atole or Mexican chocolate. Here is the recipe for Huevos Rancheros. My recipes for red salsa are posted as is the recipes for refried beans and tortillas. Buen Apetito. Enjoy

How to Make Mexican Breakfast, Ham, Huevos Rancheros, Beans, Tortillas, Chicharones

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil add the onion, sliced jalapeno, garlic, and cilantro. Saute for about three minutes. Next add the cup of red salsa and 1 cup water. Add garlic powder, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper. Lower the flame to medium and stir well cover for 3 minutes and let simmer.
  2. Next uncover and crack four eggs into the simmering salsa. space them as far apart from each other as possible spoon some sauce over each one careful not to break the egg yolk cover and let simmer for 3 more minutes. After three minutes have passed uncover and check to see if your eggs are covered white. You do not want the eggs to cook throughly. You want the yolk to be very soft like when you fry an egg sunny side up. The white part cooked but the yolk just set but not cooked through. What you have done is poach your eggs in the salsa.
  3. Serve your Huevos Rancheros next to refried beans, any breakfast meat you like such as ham, bacon, or sausage or Mexican chorizo. I like to put 2 or 3 pieces of chicharones on the plate, "pork cracklings", will post recipe this weekend. Add Tortillas and your favorite breakfast beverage. Buen appetito. Enjoy
  4. My picture above features huevos rancheros, refried beans, ham, chicharones and corn tortillas. You can opt for your favorite flour tortilla if the corn are not to your liking. Pass the extra salsa. LOL
