  • 2 teaspoons Olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 Red onion chopped
  • 1 medium Tomato minced
  • 4 tablespoons Green chiles
  • 1 small Jalapeño de-seeded and chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cumin
  • 4 ounces Chorizo Mexican
  • 3 Tortillas low carb
  • 3 large Eggs
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Avocado chopped
  • 2 ounces Queso fresco crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons Cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup Lettuce shredded



  • Over medium heat in a non-stick pan, heat the low-carb tortillas in olive oil until crispy (flipping once). Place on a paper towel or cooling rack. You can also cut a tortilla into strips and deep fry them for garnish.

Huevos Rancheros

  • In a separate skillet over medium heat, cook the chorizo for about five minutes until cooked thoroughly. Taste test! Set aside covered in foil to keep warm.
  • Add more olive oil to the skillet and cooks the chopped onions for 2 minutes, add the green chilies, chopped jalapeño, and tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes and set aside with foil and keep warm.
  • Add the eggs to your pan and cook for 2 minutes until set, flip each egg and cook for 30 seconds so they are just done "over easy." Salt and pepper to taste while cooking.
  • To serve place a crunchy tortilla on a plate. Add chorizo on top, followed by the chilies, tomatoes, and onion mixture. The egg goes on next. Garnish with the crumbled cheese, avocado, lettuce, and cilantro. Serve hot.


A nice tasty touch is to use a little Mexican cream on top and some fried low-carb tortilla strips.
