HERDEZ® Tomatillo Verde Huevos Rancheros

Recipe by  

"One of my favorite breakfasts! The HERDEZ® sauce was fun to work with and added a nice little kick to the flavors. You can substitute black beans for the refried beans and it would be just as tasty!"

Original recipe makes 4 servings Change Servings


  1. Combine half the cooking sauce and sour cream in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix remaining cooking sauce with tomatoes, onion, and avocado in a separate bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat refried beans with 1 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese in a saucepan over medium-low heat until cheese is melted and bean mixture is hot and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  3. Lay a tortilla out onto a serving plate; spread tortilla with a generous spoonful of refried bean mixture, leaving about 1 inch of tortilla bare around the edge.
  4. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until hot and foamy; gently crack eggs into the hot butter. Cook until egg whites are firm on the bottom and starting to set on top, about 3 minutes; gently flip and cook eggs on the other side until whites are set, about 2 more minutes.
  5. Place a fried egg into the center of the tortilla on top of bean mixture. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of remaining Cheddar cheese over the egg. Spoon a ring of tomato mixture onto the bare edge of the tortilla; drizzle egg with sour cream mixture. Repeat with remaining ingredients; serve immediately.

This recipe is really fantastic. I didn't use nearly the full amount of sour cream mixture - I would probably only make half the recipe for that next time. I am not a fan of raw onion, so I sauteed the onion and tomato together for about 10 minutes while I prepped everything else, then added in the tomatilla sauce to it a couple minutes before it was done cooking, spread that around the outside of the tortilla and then sprinkled some diced avocado over top. I think just to make it simpler, I might use a Tablespoon or two of salsa sprinkled around the outside edge along with the avocado (in place of the onion / tomato) next time. This was SUPER filling and really, really delicious. I ate it for lunch and really enjoyed it!! (I was out of refried beans, so I smooshed up some cooked pinto beans in place of it).

Super tasty! The recipe made too much salsa and sour cream sauce, but for us that was okay because I used it for burritos they next night.

This was a nice change of pace breakfast for Mr. LTH (I'm not a fan of eggs, but I did try a bite). I didn't have any tomatoes, so I elected to use salsa on the edges, mixed w/the Herdez(R) sauce. Mr. LTH did deem it "spicy" on first bite, but I think that may have been the salsa? I'm lazy, so I nuked the beans and cheese rather than warming them on the stove top. This dirties a lot of dishes and the results aren't the most attractive, but they do taste good! THANKS for the recipe, ItalianSpice.

This was super good! I made the "refried beans without the refry" recipe from this site to use on this. I had to cut back on the sauce since my husband is not a big fan of spicy foods. He asked me to make this for him again! :) Very Yummy!
