Sunny organic eggs with gorgeous golden yolks on warm, toasty tortillas bathed in salsa? Yes please! Huevos rancheros, or "rancher's eggs," is a popular Mexican breakfast dish. While it originated on rural Mexican farms as an early morning meal, it's so versatile, hearty, and effortlessly nutritious that you’ll want to eat it for lunch and dinner, too.

Make the salsa:

Step 1

Heat grapeseed oil in pan with high sides over medium heat. Add onions and cook until onions are soft.

Step 2

Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Add chopped tomatoes, along with any juice from the cutting board.

Step 4

Stir, bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until tomatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. Season with salt.

Assemble the huevos rancheros:

Step 1

Toast tortillas until crisp and browned in a toaster or toaster oven on high (if you don’t have a toaster/toaster oven, you can “toast” tortillas in a hot cast iron skillet or other frying pan over high heat).

Step 2

Place 2 tortillas per serving on serving plates.

Step 3

Spread black beans over tortillas. Spoon cooked salsa over black beans.

Step 4

Slip sunny side up eggs over salsa, then top eggs with avocado slices, queso fresco, and garnishes. Serve with additional salsa and optional garnishes on the side
