Gluten-free Dairy-free Huevos Rancheros Mexican Eggs

No Dairy Bug No Gluten BugPrep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: less than 10 minutes

Rest time: none

Makes 1 serving.



2 fresh eggs

2-3 Tablespoons olive oil

pepper, to taste

3-4 Tablespoons spicy salsa (up the flavor quotient by using spicy salsa) – I use Pace Picante Salsa 

2 cups blue corn tortilla chips, crumbled into coarse pieces – Food Should Taste Good are gluten-free

1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced

1-2 Tablespoons cilantro, coarsely chopped

wedge of fresh lime

1 teaspoon chopped chives, for garnish



Heat 1 Tablespoon oil in cast iron skillet or nonstick pan, until very hot but not smoking.

Crack eggs into pan and cook until crispy and golden on edges and whites are fully cooked. Cook until yolks are done to your liking. Sprinkle with pepper. (This recipe doesn’t really need extra salt since there is salt on the chips.)

Heat 1 Tablespoon oil in a separate small cast iron skillet or sauté pan, when eggs are just about finished cooking.

Add tortilla chips to the warm oil and stir well. Add salsa to chips and heat, stirring well, until chips have softened slightly. Add additional oil if chips are a bit dry and sticking to the pan. They should not be oily though.

Spread chips onto serving plate.

Top chips with cooked eggs. Add avocado to plate. Squeeze lime over eggs and avocado, if desired. Sprinkle cilantro over eggs and garnish with chives.

Serve Hot and Enjoy!
