"This is our take on huevos rancheros, an amazing brunch dish comprising of beautifully rich & spicy tomato & red pepper sauce with eggs and soft tortillas. The secret is to leave the eggs a little underdone while they are cooking on the hob, then finishing them off under the grill with plenty of grated cheese. Then you can enjoy the sight of the runny eggs mixing with the beautifully rich and spicy tomato sauce. This dish is delicious wrapped up in some warmed Street Tacos tortilla wraps."


Preparation Time30 min

Cooking Time20 min


  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 red peppers, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp chipotle paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 handful of coriander, leaves and stalks roughly chopped separately2 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 x 400g (14oz) cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 50g (2oz) Cheddar cheese, grated salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • Street Taco tortilla wraps or crusty bread, toasted, to serve
  1. Heat a good slug of oil in a large pan (with a lid for later) on a low–medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, peppers, chipotle paste and bay leaves and season with salt and pepper. You can also add the chopped coriander stalks. Fry the vegetables for about 15 minutes until starting to soften.

  2. Add the fresh and canned tomatoes, then stir in the sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes. Mix together and cook for another 10 minutes, or until it is reducing down to a nice, rich sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

  3. Use a food processor to blend about three-quarters of the sauce until completely smooth. Return it to the pan and mix in.

  4. Preheat the grill.

  5. Now, make four spaces in the sauce, evenly spaced out, with a wooden spoon. Crack each egg into its own space. Put the lid on and cook for about 4 minutes until the eggs are almost, but not completely, cooked. This is important. Take the pan off the heat while they’re still undercooked.

  6. Sprinkle with the cheese and flash under a hot grill for a few minutes to melt the cheese and finish off the eggs in Huevos Rancheros.
