Huevos rancheros

Posh Toast
25 mins

It would be a pretty sophisticated cowpoke who could rustle up huevos rancheros over a campfire but the spirit of the Wild West makes this a terrific start to the day.


Quantity Ingredient
125g cooking chorizo, diced
1 red onion, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
400g tin cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon sliced jalapenos from a jar, finely chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons sunflower oil
400g tin black beans, drained and rinsed
4 small flour tortillas
4 eggs
1 ripe avocado
large handful coriander, (cilantro)
4 tablespoons soured cream, (optional)
freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Place a frying pan over medium heat and cook the chorizo for 5 minutes or until it has released its oil and begun to crisp up. Remove using a slotted spoon and set aside. Place the pan back on the heat, add the sliced onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add 1 crushed garlic clove and cook for 30 seconds, then tip in the tomatoes, jalapeños, smoked paprika and vinegar. Season, bring to a simmer and cook gently for about 8 minutes, until thickened and reduced. Stir through the cooked chorizo and set aside.
  2. In a separate pan, heat 1½ tbsp of the oil until really hot, tip in the beans and fry for 5 minutes over a high heat. Stir through the remaining garlic and cook for a further minute. Sprinkle with salt and set aside. Use 1½ tbsp of the oil to brush the tortillas on both sides. Place in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for 6 – 8 minutes or until crisp.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the eggs. Top the tortillas with a few spoonfuls of the tomato sauce, the beans and a fried egg. Halve the avocado and remove the stone, then scoop out the flesh and cut into thin wedges. Divide between the tortillas, and finish with sprigs of coriander. Serve some cooling soured cream alongside, if you like.
