“Drawing inspiration for the beans and salsa from the San Francisco-based restaurant and cookbook, Nopalito, this take on huevos rancheros is fresh and satisfying whether you choose to make it for breakfast, lunch, or a even a late-night snack. If you can’t find tomatillos, you can substitute in green tomatoes and plenty of lime juice to give the salsa that necessary tang.”

  • Step 3/5

    For the refried beans, heat some of the canola oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and cook until golden brown, approx. 3 – 5 min. Add the beans and half of their liquid to the pot, along with the dried oregano, and a pinch of salt. Once the beans are hot, carefully transfer the mixture to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Keep warm and set aside until serving.

  • Step 4/5

    Heat remaining canola oil to a frying pan. Add a corn tortilla to the pan and fry for approx. 15 sec. per side, using tongs to flip them, repeat with remaining tortillas. Transfer each tortilla to a paper towel-lined plate and stack them as you go, covering with a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm. Fry eggs one at a time in the same pan, using oil to baste the eggs and draining any excess oil if needed. Once the whites are set but the yolks still jiggly, set aside on a plate and season with salt and pepper.
