Part two has everything to do with the tortilla and skillet. You need to push a small tortilla in the mini cast iron skillet. We are making two so repeat for the other skillet.

Then put two slices of ham on the the tortilla. You do not need a baking product in the skillets. Now add half of the kidney bean mixture on the tortilla.

Repeat this series of steps for the second skillet. Be sure to leave some room in the middle of your skillet so you can crack an egg on top of the bean mixture.

    Hi, Thanks for sharing the recipe!
    I’ve found a real difficulty adjusting the skillet temperature. I ended up burning the recipe 🙁 can you please suggest me any adjustments in temperature?

      Hi William,

      I used mini skillets and did not pre heat them in the oven but put them in cold. Never burned a tortilla at 420℉ but every oven is different. You can either keep the temperature as is but check after 8-10 to see if the egg is set and take it out. Or lower the temperature to 375℉-350℉. At this temperature it will take longer for the egg to set I imagine.

    Great Recipe. What if I add some beef to it? What’s your opinion about adding that?

      Mankuber,
      Thank you. I haven’t made huevos rancheros with beef myself but I do not see why you shouldn’t. What type of beef are you thinking about?
