How to Make Mexican Egg Recipes 

I learned how to make Mexican egg recipes which could be used for entrees, snacks and desserts as well as breakfast recipes. Eggs have been consumed for centuries all over the world. In many civilizations, they have served as the main source of protein and other nutritions. They are often called the “perfect food” or referred to as “the incredible egg”.


I learned how to make one of the traditional Mexican egg recipes which is called in Spanish “huevos rancheros recipe”.  It is traditionally served on farms as a mid morning meal as we call a brunch. With eggs as the basic ingredient, other ingredients could include tortillas, rice, salsa, refried beans, avocado or guacamole. With the rise of popularity of this dish many other versions have taken hold which might include numerous other ingredients. Below you will find one of these versions.

As you travel around Mexico, you will see that eggs are used in all kinds of dishes. You might order a beef or pork sandwich and find it topped with a fried egg. It is not uncommon to get some type of eggs in anything on the menu. Sometimes hotels will set up a buffet style breakfast or brunch and visible are eggs cooked in every style topping the buffet dishes. They even learn how to make Mexican egg recipes for salads as you see in the recipe below. (I often include them in my salads for a great source of protein).

With the popularity of Mexican egg recipes, I am sure you can imagine how this wonderful ingredient is used to make delicious desserts. The first one that comes to my mind is the flan recipe. This is so popular all over Central and South America. Many years ago, at a country club where I was working, flan was requested by our southern guests for every meal. The dessert never gets boring because it can be made in different flavors and is always delicious.
