Chosen Guajillo-Pasilla Huevos Rancheros

Chosen Team

Brighten any morning with this take on Huevos Rancheros, which harmoniously balances the spicy, smoky flavor of our Guajillo-Pasilla Simmer Sauce with sunny-side-up farm eggs, creamy cotija cheese, lemony cilantro, and ripe Hass Avocados.

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 jar Chosen Foods Guajillo-Pasilla Simmer Sauce
  • 8 large organic, pasture-raised eggs
  • 8 tortillas of choice (we used corn tortillas)
  • Avocado oil for the tortillas 
  • 2 avocados, sliced 
  • ½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Pickled onion (optional)
  • ¼ cup of cotija or ranchero cheese


  1. Warm the Simmer Sauce in a cast iron or sauté pan on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Crack eggs on top of the sauce and simmer with the lid on until desired consistency is reached. If you like your egg yolks runny, poach for about 4 minutes until the whites are not translucent. 
  3. While the eggs are cooking, heat the tortillas in the pan with ¼ inch of avocado oil. Using tongs, flip to crisp--about 2 minutes per side. Then, set aside on a plate.
  4. On each crisped tortilla, spread the warmed Simmer Sauce and top with one egg.
  5. Once plated, finish them off with sliced avocado, chopped cilantro, pickled onion (if using), and of course, some fresh ranchero queso!
