Huevos rancheros is a traditional breakfast dish in Mexico where it is often served mid-morning on large, rural farms. This dish is hearty enough to jumpstart your day no matter what type of work you have planned. Traditionally, the eggs and tomatoes are served on top of the tortillas, but we liked the flexibility of serving the tortillas on the side for dipping and scooping up sauce. Cilantro, avocado, and lime juice are classic toppings for huevos rancheros, but shredded cheese or pickled jalapenos would also taste great.
Note: if you would like to schedule this cook, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, sauté the onion, garlic, cumin, salt, and olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat for 6 minutes instead of broiling.
