Generations of farmers and ranchers have served huevos rancheros to their families, to fortify them before the day’s work begins. Hot coffee brewed over live coals, as well as freshly made corn tortillas, huevos rancheros and a side of refritos (refried beans) are the standard morning almuerzo in most rural Mexican communities.
Try making Huevos Rancheros as a light supper or quick weekend lunch. The salsa is not too spicy as a morning dish. For a zippier flavor, simply return the core and seeds of the Serrano chile to the salsa as it simmers.
