Salsa Senorita's Huevos Rancheros



  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 4 medium tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, de-stemmed, de-seeded and finely diced
  • ½ cup Salsa Senorita – any variety
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Corn tortillas
  • Eggs
  • Cotija cheese
  • Serving suggestions: morning eggs, tamales, beans, potatoes, tortilla chips


In a skillet, cook the bacon until done but soft, not crisp. Add the tomatoes, peppers, onions, salsa,                         garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Dip corn tortillas in hot oil but do not fry until crisp, tortilla should still be soft.  Fry two eggs over easy and place on top of tortilla.  Spoon Ranchero sauce over eggs and top with cotija cheese.                                  

Remove from the heat and serve hot over your morning eggs (huevos rancheros), tamales, beans (frijoles) or potatoes (papas). Serve cold with tortilla chips.
