Huevos Rancheros with [Grain-Free] Tortillas

I have been wanting to make huevos rancheros for SO long! I can’t believe it took me this long. I got inspired recently when Kenny and I took a trip to Colorado for a family ski trip. We drove through Santa Fe on our way to Pagosa Springs, and we stopped for breakfast at the cutest cafe/yoga studio/boutique called BODY Cafe. Any time I’m in Santa Fe, I’m definitely going back to this place!

Huevos RancherosPractically everything in there was gluten-free, and they had tons of vegan, vegetarian and raw options as well. The staff was so helpful, and very accommodating to food allergies. Kenny had an omelet, and I had the huevos rancheros. This was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. It normally comes with corn tortillas, but since I’ve given up corn because it gives me a tummy ache, they substituted a brown rice tortilla for me. As I was eating this, I told Kenny that I just had to recreate this on the blog.

Huevos RancherosI crisped up my grain-free tortillas, and layered on some black beans, perfectly runny fried eggs, green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, goat cheese, and some salsa for good measure. Ya’ll, I think I have a problem, I’ve been putting goat cheese on everything. I can’t be stopped. The goat cheese seriously sets the whole thing off, just trust me on this one.

Huevos RancherosWhen you break into the yolk, it just oozes all over the tortillas and beans and oh. my. gosh. It’s a party for your taste buds.


Huevos Rancheros with [Grain-Free] Tortillas

Yield: Serves 2


  • 1 batch grain-free tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup cooked black beans
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
  • cilantro to garnish
  • salsa- optional
  • pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, toast 4 of the tortillas for about 5 minutes until slightly crispy. You could also do this in a toaster oven.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium/medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, then carefully crack the eggs into the skillet. Season with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes, until slightly crispy on the edges, but yolk is still runny.
  3. While the eggs are cooking, heat the beans in a small skillet over low heat.
  4. To assemble, put two tortillas on a plate, pour 1/3 cup of the beans on top of the tortillas. Add two of the fried eggs on top, then sprinkle half of the green onions, tomatoes, goat cheese and cilantro over the top. Repeat with the other two tortillas, eggs, and all other ingredients.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
