  • 2 cups ranchero sauce (recipe follows)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 Tortillas (I prefer flour, but you can use corn)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups refried beans (recipe follows if you want to make your own).
  • 1/2 cup queso fresco


  • Warm the ranchero sauce and the beans in separate saucepans (or use microwave).
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a fry pan, and crisp the tortillas - this will only take a few seconds. A flour tortilla will puff up slightly. Drain on paper towels.
  • Add a bit more oil to the pan, and fry the eggs, basting with oil to set the tops.
  • Place two tortillas on each plate, spread a spoonful of beans over each tortilla, and top each with an egg.
  • Spoon 1/4 to 1/2 cup ranchero sauce over the eggs, and top with crumbled queso fresco.
