Pulled Pork Huevos Rancheros

My favorite meal of the day is brunch.  It is the best of both worlds. You get breakfast foods with lunch and dinner food options as well. You can drink coffee, mimosas, and other fun cocktails all while hanging out with your best friends or loved ones. Pulled Pork Huevos Rancheros

I used to be a sucker for going out to brunch every weekend, but now it’s fun to make brunch at home.  Usually it’s just my husband and me but sometimes I’ll invite over some girlfriends and we’ll have a weekend celebration.

Growing up in California a common theme for brunch was mexican food. If there are huevos rancheros on the menu there is a good chance I’m ordering them! Because of this I like to consider myself a huevos rancheros connoisseur.

This crockpot pulled pork recipe is my go to.  I don’t follow it step by step.

Here is how I tweak it.

I follow steps 1-6 but I also add a can of tomatoes with green chilies.

I don’t worry about cooking them in a pan. I’m sure they would taste even more amazing but I don’t do it. Saves me time and less dishes to wash. I make the pork for a weeknight dinner and save the leftovers for the weekend!

Now for the details about making the perfect heuvos rancheros.

Pulled Pork Huevos Rancheros

1. Heat up leftover pulled pork in a frying pan. When warm set aside.

2. While pork is heating up put a can of beans on the stove in a sauce pan.  I use black beans, but refried beans are also amazing with this recipe! I also add a bit of hot sauce to the beans to give them a bit of a kick.

3. Cook eggs. You could use scrambled eggs if you want but I prefer sunny side up. Someone recently asked me how I got my eggs to look perfect.  A few years ago I started breaking both eggs into a small dish/ramekin and then pouring them into the hot pan. The eggs come out perfect every time!

4. While eggs are cooking I turn on my broiler and warm the corn tortillas.  Flour tortillas also work well and feel free to warm your tortillas how ever you prefer.

5. Now to assemble.

Place two tortillas on the plate, add a spoonful of beans {I do a big spoonful} and spread over both tortillas.

Place the pulled pork over the beans. I usually make sure I get a good spoonful on each tortilla and spread it out a bit so the eggs will lay flat on top.

Before I add the eggs I add salsa on top of the pork. Whatever salsa is your favorite will work. I usually add a homemade roasted chipotle + tomato salsa.

Then I add the eggs on top of all that goodness.

Last step is to add a few slices of avocado and your favorite hot sauce and enjoy!

What is your go to brunch/breakfast meal?
