Remember when you were a kid and eating “breakfast for dinner” was a fun novelty?

It can totally still be that (except we actually do it on the reg, since we love eggs so much..), and Huevos Rancheros is a great recipe for when the mood strikes.

It’s heartier than most egg dishes since you add in black beans, cheese, and a tortilla, and the flavor is savory and spicy. Serve it alongside a salad or a complementary veggie like corn, and you’ve got a full meal.

Protein is in serious supply thanks to eggs, black beans, and cheese. Eggs are filled with other important nutrients like choline, and black beans also provide fiber. Cilantro is also a powerful little herb that contains beta-carotene and many other vitamins.
