This popular dish is usually prepared with sunny-side up fried eggs; we made it with scrambled eggs to save time.

No scrambled eggs, the taste and texture is different. It needs just a red sauce from dried chilis not whatever you called that sauce, also corn tortilla is preferred.

Here in Arizona, Huevos Rancheros are made with corn tortillos, refried beans, and fried eggs! No sour cream, no avacado- red salsa only- this is cowboy food!

And please, PLEASE! never prepare Huevos Rancheros with scrambled eggs, and if you do, don't call it Huevos Rancheros, because it would be something else.

This can'f be less accurate! Huevos rancheros are NOT served with cheese or avocado. Nor with flour tortilla. Fry a CORN tortilla just for about 30 seconds. Put on dish. Fry an egg and place it on the torilla (egg yolk side up). Cover with red salsa and serve. For salsa, grill red tomatos, discard skin, blend with chile serrano (never jalapeńo!) onion, a lot of cilantro, and salt.

So sad when people jump on the rude bandwagon so easily (Andumelon). If it was indeed actual nutritional info that maryanneminich was looking for, I've never been able to find that info on this site either (calories, fat grams, etc). If Andumelon thinks "nutritional info" means "ingredients" then I would suggest maybe it 's them that needs a helpful visit from Martha Stewart. THAT SAID this is a good recipe. My picky son even liked it. Now loosen up, put a smile on your faces & go hug someone.

Huevos Rancheros are not like this... It's a fried egg over a fried corn tortilla topped with salsa... Never with sour cream or avocado...

Wow, that was rude Andumelon. Nutritional information is more than just figuring out what's in the recipe. I think that's what Maryanneminich wanted. And I don't see a link for nutritional info. like calories, fat, cholesterol, sugars, etc.

Maryanne. Nearly every ingredient in every recipe on this site will have nutritional information on it. It takes literally seconds to figure out what is in all of these recipes. Would you like Martha Stewart to come over and cook this meal for you as well?

How come this site has recipes with no nutritional information
