Huevos Rancheros Tostadas

Tostadas for breakfast? I don’t know how much of a thing that is, but it really should be. Especially when concocting a little breakfast idea like Huevos Rancheros Tostadas.

Huevos Rancheros Tostadas makes a great breakfast for dinner, or bunch meal. Topped with black beans, a from scratch salsa, then topped with a fried egg cojita cheese and serrano peppers

This is a very easy recipe to throw together. My salsa mixture, is cooked down canned tomatoes with some fresh onion, garlic and jalepeno,

If you want to speed up the process, you you can use something like a can of rotel [affilliate] to speed up the process. I’ve done it both ways and it comes out great.

Huevos Rancheros Tostadas makes a great brunch idea, or a “put your own breakfast together meal”. Which are my personal favorites. Lay all the food out on the table, and let everyone else stack their tostadas as they like.

Food is on the table in a lot less time and I’m not rushing to get everything put together and worrying if my first tostada has gone cold!

Once you break that runny yolk, everything starts blending together, and its so delicious. Lots of great textures and flavors coming together, and it’s got some heat, which I’m always a fan of!

While there is no way my picky toddler will be eating huevos rancheros tostadas for breakfast, I can guarantee you if you just make it a plan tostada with a side of eggs, he’ll be happy for breakfast.

And mom and dad can eat well too!
