Who doesn’t love breakfast? Any time of day?

Huevos Rancheros Casserole is the perfect Meatless Monday vegetarian meal. There, I said it. Huevos rancheros (or rancher’s eggs) are a typical breakfast served at Mexican farms, featuring corn tortillas and fried eggs topped with a heaping pile of warmed salsa.

Huevos Rancheros is extremely popular here in Arizona; everywhere you go you will get some different version of the dish. However, it does focus on it being a breakfast dish that features white corn tortilla, topped with black and pinto beans, a red-chili sauce, cheese and eggs. For me though, made into a casserole, it is the answer any time I’m craving extra protein or a super hearty, quick meal.

I can’t resist them on a brunch menu, either. If we’re out to brunch and they have Huevos Rancheros on the menu, count me in. I absolutely love this combo, which is why I thought it would be fun to come up with another way to make it … and not only for breakfast but for dinner too!

Also, huevos rancheros casserole is actually tipping the scales on the healthy side! No butter, no oil, tons of protein! Yes, I know, there’s cheese but you can lower the amount or cut it out all together for a vegan option. Seriously, it’s perfect for sticking to my healthier eating plan.

So, enjoy this Huevos Rancheros Casserole that I have been perfecting. I’m excited to share this recipe with you!
