  1. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas one at a time until firm, but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain grease.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the refried beans and butter in a microwave-safe dish. Cover, and cook in the microwave until heated through. When tortillas are done, fry eggs over easy in the skillet. Add more oil if the tortillas have absorbed it all.
  3. Place tortillas onto plates, and spread a layer of beans on them. Top with cheese, a fried egg, crumbled bacon and if desired, salsa.

I make this at home often. It's very good. Different flavor salsas are fun to experiment with too. (and I also use fat free re-fried beans... they taste great)

As others have said, these are not authentic by any means, but who cares, since my husband loved them! He even made more the next morning with the leftover ingredients and surprised me with bre...

These were good for Americanized Huevos Rancheros, but nothing like authentic. One thing they need is a good ranchera sauce (not salsa), but the recipe I tried from here was not very good so I'...

8/20 I made this for Husband's brunch and wanted it to be a bit more substantial, so I doubled the eggs and bacon, sprinkled with lots of extra-sharp Cheddar and Mexican cheeses, topped with jar...

I see nothing authenic about this recipe. Scratch the beans, scratch the bacon - only use corn tortillas, eggs and fresh homemade salsa rojo(made from dried NM red chilis, water, salt and garli...
