This is simply a pico de gallo blended. I make mine with homemade enchilada gravy that smothers corn tortillas and three fried eggs on top. Pico de gallo is not really an authentic topping for huevos rancheros. Use the above mentioned gravy (not canned please) or chile colorado for a more authentic dish. Clue: enchilada gravy (it is easy to make) has no tomatoes in it. It is red because of the use of chile powder not tomatoes. I don't care what the can says, it's wrong.

You'd think with a billion dollar empire, a mistake like this would've been fixed by now. And a website with such a wealth of information would be a bit easier to navigate around. Grrrrr. Martha, Martha, Martha!!!

You obviously have the ingredient list for a different recipe. When are you going to correct this error? Most of these comments have been up for a week with no correction.

You are so right..rancheros sauce is usually made up of tomatoes, onions and sometimes peppers. Traditionally no meat!

Here's a guess: How about a 28 oz can of whole tomatoes instead of the beef?

Where does the beef go? I thought rancheros sauce was just a red sauce, no meat.
