Hey guys, this is Lauren visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch. I hope you enjoyed the holidays, and I really hope you were able to try the Salted Chocolate Covered Caramels I shared last month.

A plate of food on a table, with Salsa and Bean

I’ve had more than my fair share of sweets over the last two weeks and I’m ready for some “lighter” food! These Huevos Rancheros are one of my favorite easy breakfasts that look impressive but are super easy to make. Plus, they’re on the lighter side, so everyone can feel full and happy. If you’ve never heard of Huevos Rancheros they are a popular Mexican style breakfast. A white corn tortilla topped with a thin layer of refried beans, salsa, and egg. Some people add cheese on top, but I like to add some fresh avocado and cilantro.
