Baked Huevos Rancheros

I saw a recipe somewhere earlier this week for a baked huevos rancheros and it sounded pretty tasty. I forgot to bookmark it and couldn’t find it later so I made one up using a few I found online.

Bake Huevos Rancheros


  • 4 oz. chorizo, cut into 1/4″ cubes
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) kidney beans, well rinsed
  • 1 jalapenos pepper, finely diced
  • 1 cup caramelized onions
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • salt & cracked black pepper
  • jarred salsa
  • 2 eggs
  • shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place 2 oven proof dishes on a sheet pan and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan saute the chorizo over medium heat for several minutes until some of the oil is released.  Add the chopped jalapenos and cook for until aromatic.
  3. Add the caramelized onions, kidney beans, cumin, and about a 1/2 a cup of water.  Stir thorough to mix the onions among the beans.
  4. When the pot comes to a boil lower heat to maintain a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
  5. When the beans are cooked split them between the 2 oven proof dishes.
  6. Spread salsa over the beans.
  7. Make a depression in the center of the beans and crack an egg into each dish.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the pan once.
  9. Turn on the broiler and sprinkle the cheese over each dish.  Broil for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.

Serve with sour cream, additional salsa if desired and tortilla chips.
