This dish is a combination of fried eggs, beans, chiles, and tortillas that have been cooked in a tomato sauce. The dish is believed to have originated in the Mexican state of Jalisco in the 1800s. The name of the dish translates to “Rancher’s Eggs” and was a popular dish among Mexican farm workers.

• 6 large eggs
refried beans (1 can or homemade)
