This recipe for Cajun Huevos Rancheros is incredibly simple, quick and easy! It requires only 7 ingredients and makes a great meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Using egg whites and refried beans mean this recipe is packed with protein, and you’ll stay you full and satisfied.
Our take includes fresh vegetables sauteed in Cajun spices for added flavour! We were able to get some delicious multi-coloured grape tomatoes for this recipe, but any kind of grape or cherry tomatoes will do! Feel free to mix up the veggies and add whatever you have on hand.
This recipe is perfect for days when you’re pressed for time, or just don’t feel like an hour of cooking. Baked tortilla chips would be the perfect thing to round out this meal if you’re looking for something a little more filling! We topped ours with hot sauce – some other delicious options:
- Cilantro or Basil
- Lime juice
We hope you enjoy this simple meal as much as we do!
