This wonderful recipe for huevos rancheros is courtesy of Pete Evans and can be found in "My Table: Food for Entertaining."


  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 4 (6-inch) corn tortillas

  • 8 tablespoons prepared refried beans

  • 8 tablespoons prepared tomato salsa

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 4 tablespoons sour cream

  • 4 sprigs fresh cilantro

  • 1 lime, quartered

  • 12 jalapeno chiles (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, fry tortillas, turning once, until just beginning to brown; transfer to a baking sheet. Spread beans over tortillas; top with salsa.

  3. Add eggs to skillet and fry until whites are just set but yolks are soft. Place one egg on each tortilla and season with salt and pepper; sprinkle over chopped cilantro and cheese.

  4. Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Transfer tortillas to a plate and top each with avocado slices and a tablespoon of sour cream. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve with lime wedges and jalapenos, if desired.
