If you're a fan of savory breakfasts with a hint of spice, Huevos Rancheros might just become your new morning favorite. This traditional Mexican dish is a burst of flavor that combines eggs, tomato-chili sauce, and a medley of toppings for a satisfying start to your day. For an extra touch of freshness and flavor, serve it with a side of GorillaBowlZ's tomato salsa or pico de gallo!
One of the beauties of Huevos Rancheros is its versatility. Feel free to personalize it by adding ingredients like sautéed bell peppers, onions, or even a touch of smoky chorizo for an extra dimension of flavor.

For Serving (optional)
Place chopped bacon in a large saucepan, and turn on heat to medium-high. Cook for 5-6 minutes until fat is rendered and bacon is crispy. Transfer bacon to a bowl, leave the rendered fat on the pan.
While fat or oil is shimmering, add the onion, bell pepper, salt and cook, stirring frequently, until softened but not browned, about 3 minutes.
Add the jalapeno, garlic, cumin, and oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chipotle and adobo sauce and stir to combine.
Add the tomatoes, and black beans, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a bare simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
Add lime zest, lime juice, and cooked bacon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve, with sunny side up eggs, tomato salsa, cilantro, avocado, tortilla, and feta or crema if desired.
