Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 (7-inch) corn tortilla
    1/4 teaspoon chili powder, divided
    1/4 cup chopped red onion
    1/2 bell pepper, chopped
    2 tablespoons black beans, drained and rinsed
    2 tablespoons chopped mango
    1/2 lime, zested and juiced
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 egg
    2 teaspoons low-sodium salsa verde
    1 tablespoon chopped cilantro






Tips

Huevos rancheros is a pretty simple meal: corn tortillas, eggs, spicy tomato sauce. Many versions, however, don't stop there, adding chili (with meat!), refried beans, loads of cheese and other high-cal toppings. We loaded ours up, too, with fresh mango salsa, creamy black beans, and plenty of vegetables.


We used chipotle chili powder for added smokiness, but you can use any chili powder plus a pinch of smoked paprika.

No fresh mango? Use frozen or swap in corn kernels.

Salsa verde is made not from green tomatoes but from tomatillos, a tart relative of the tomato that's common in Mexican cuisine, plus cilantro, onions, and various peppers. Can't find it? Swap your favorite salsa.

This recipe is from "The Spark Solution: A Complete Two-Week Program to Fast-Track Weight Loss and Total Body Health," the new book from the experts at SparkPeople. Order your copy today!


Craving cheese? Top the tortilla with 2 tablespoons shredded low-fat Cheddar or pepper Jack.


Directions

Place a medium skillet over medium heat.
Coat both sides of the tortilla with cooking spray and a pinch of the chili powder.
Cook for 30 seconds on each side and place on a plate.
Pull the skillet away from the heat and coat with cooking spray.
Return the skillet to stove, add the onion, pepper, and beans and cook for three to four minutes, until the veggies start to soften. Add the mango, lime juice and zest, the cumin and remaining chili powder. Cook for two minutes.
Pour the veggies and beans over the tortilla. Coat the skillet with cooking spray again and return to the heat. Cook the egg until the yolk is set. Slide the egg on top of the veggies, and top with the salsa verde and cilantro.
Serve immediately.

    I have a mixture of brown rice, lentils, and black beans that I buy in the bulk section at Whole Foods that I cook up on Sunday and add to things throughout the week. I used that in place of the black beans, and I added avocado slices, and rolled it like a burrito. - 3/17/13

    I fixed this for my DW and I at lunch today, & it was really, Really good. My wife is not an enthusiast of spicy hot, but this was mild enough for her. I added a healthy dose of Cholula Hot Sauce (my definition of a "healthy dose" is enough to break a sweat on my forehead and open my sinus'). - 3/23/13

    Opening a can of black beans for one serving isn't very practical for me since I'm the only one that likes them. So, I made the salsa using the whole can and adjusting the rest of the ingredients and use it one almost everything I make for a week. It's that good. - 2/27/15

    I make this without a wrap, and it's close to paleo. Remove the beans, and it's 100% paleo. My wife keeps requesting this over and over. - 9/13/13

  • When I lived in AZ, this was a standard dish, available at many restaurants too, but usually made with 1) flour tortillas (I prefer whole wheat ones), 2) refried (pinto) beans, and 3) tomato (red) salsa. No mangoes. - 5/29/20

    Loved everything about it. Who chooses these pictures though. The picture would imply that two Huevos Rancheros make up a portion....not so. Also the recipe contains no tomatoes or tomato salsa but instead, salsa verde. I love either but why isn't the picture representative of the recipe? - 8/29/19

    This was delicious, no substitutes except yellow onion for red, just because that is what I had on hand. I added a sprinkling of park skim mozzarella and a blob of fat free sour cream.
