While it sounds complicated, huevos rancheros is actually insanely easy to make, and this casserole is even easier.

Buenos días, Yummies! This recipe is one of my favorites. It always takes me back to crisp New Mexico mornings, eating spicy green chile and gazing up at the snowcapped Sandia Mountains.

While it sounds complicated, huevos rancheros is actually insanely easy to make, and this casserole is even easier. I was pleasantly surprised that the chile was mild enough for this handsome little dude, who couldn't get enough!

Vaya con Dios, mis amigos. Have a delicious day! xoxo
