  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2-3 jalapeno peppers chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper chopped (optional for extra spicy)
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 15 ounces pinto beans, drained
  • 2 cups ranchero sauce or use a 15 ounce can or tomato sauce or roasted diced tomatoes with seasonings - *See comments in the post above
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or use Monterrey Jack, Pepper Jack, or a combination of them all
  • 4-6 eggs
  • FOR TOPPINGS: Spicy chili flakes sliced avocado, sliced jalapenos or serranos, pico de gallo, chopped fresh herbs, crumbly white cheese


  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet (I used my 14-inch cast iron paand add the onion and peppers. Cook them down for 5 minutes to soften.
  • Add the garlic and cook another minute, until you can smell the gorgeous garlic.
  • Stir in the pinto beans, ranchero sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes to let the flavors develop.
  • Remove the sauce and bean mixture and reserve.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using the same pan (or use a lightly oiled large baking dish), layer half of the tortillas onto the bottom.
  • Top with half the sauce and bean mixture, then half of the shredded cheese.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas, then sauce and bean mixture, then shredded cheese.
  • Use a spoon to make impressions into the top layer, then crack the eggs into them.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the eggs set.
  • Remove and top with your toppings of choice. I used chili flakes, sliced avocado, sliced serranos, chopped fresh herbs, crumbly white cheese.
