Cinco de Mayo is celebrated this Monday and a big part of this annual celebration is the food! I asked our Inventory Manager Kata, who has shared her amazing recipes with us in the past, for something in honour of this holiday. Here’s one of her favourite Mexican recipes – the classic Huevos Rancheros (recipe adapted from the cookbook A Treasury of Mexican Cuisine).



I.     1/4 cup oil   /   6 tortilla

II.   12 eggs   /   1/2 cup oil

III. Salsa Ranchera (recipe to follow)


I. Fry the tortillas lightly in oil, and remove while still soft. Put a tortilla on each plate.

II. Fry the eggs in oil two at a time. Put 2 eggs on top of each tortilla,

III. Cover the eggs with salsa ranchera, and serve immediately.

Salsa Ranchera recipe:

  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 3 chiles
  • 1/2 onion, finelt chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Parboil the tomatoes and chiles. Peel the tomatoes. Grind the tomatoes and chiles in a mortar with the onion and garlic. When they are evenly ground, add salt. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and fry the ground mixture until it is well cooked. Serve with fresh avocado and beans if so desired.
