Ingredients and substitutions

  • Hash browns – use store-bought frozen hash browns for easier prep, or make your own from scratch.
  • Turkey bacon – turkey bacon is a leaner option but feel free to use regular bacon or tempeh bacon.
  • Avocado – use fresh avocado slices or guacamole.
  • Butter – olive oil can be used in place of butter.
  • Eggs – prepare your eggs as you wish or use carton egg whites.

  • Black beans – pinto beans or red kidney beans are great substitutes for black beans.
  • Chili powder – use paprika, chili flakes or cayenne pepper in place of chili powder.
  • Cumin – ground coriander, paprika or chili powder will work well instead.
  • Lime juice – you can use fresh or bottled lime juice but I recommend fresh for best results.
  • Salt – to taste.
  • Sour cream – for a lower fat option, use plain unsweetened Greek yogurt.
  • Cheddar cheese – use anyshredded cheese blend of your choice, such as Tex Mex or Monterey Jack.

  • Tomato – use Roma tomatoes or cherry tomatoes.

  • Cilantro – leave this off altogether if you’re not a fan of cilantro.
  • Salt – to taste.

How to prevent the avocado from browning

If you’ll be meal prepping these bowls, I’d suggest cutting up a fresh avocado right before eating. If you plan on taking these bowls to work or school, you want to make sure avocado doesn’t go brown. Avocados typically turn brown due to an enzyme that’s found in them. When that enzyme is exposed to oxygen, it causes the avocado to brown.

The best way to prevent your avocado from browning is by sprinkling the cut avocado with lemon or lime juice. The acidity from the citrus serves as a protective layer for the avocado to stop it from oxidizing and keeps it fresh longer!

Frequently Asked Questions

What does Huevos Rancheros mean?

Huevos rancheros translates directly in English to ranch-style eggs. It’s a breakfast dish made popular in the Mexican countryside and typically consists of eggs served on tortillas with pico de gallo, refried beans, guacamole and rice. These bowls offer a healthier spin on the Mexican breakfast dish without the tortillas.

What do they contain?

These bowls are made with hash browns, turkey bacon, avocado, eggs, refried beans and pico de gallo. You can prepare the eggs however you want, although the most popular option is to serve the eggs fried or sunnyside up.

Are these bowls vegetarian?

These huevos rancheros bowls are not vegetarian because they contain turkey bacon, but if you want a vegetarian option, just leave the bacon out or swap it out for tempeh bacon! Everything else in this dish is totally vegetarian-friendly and you’ll still be getting plenty of protein thanks to the eggs and beans.

Storing and reheating

If you have leftovers, I suggest storing all the components separately. Each component requires different warming instructions, so storing them together won’t give you the best results the next day. The components will last in the fridge separately for up to 3 days.

When you’re ready to enjoy your breakfast bowls, warm up the components that need warming (i.e. the hash browns, turkey bacon, beans) and then add the other ingredients to the bowl. You will also want to cook your eggs fresh as they won’t store well overnight.

Freezing this recipe

Unfortunately, these bowls aren’t freezer-friendly.

Instructions

  • Make pico de gallo by mixing all ingredients under the pico de gallo heading together. Let sit so the flavours can mingle.

  • Remove hashbrowns and bacon from pan. Add butter and crack eggs into pan, cooking for about 3-4 min until yolks are as runny as you desire. Flip for a fried egg, or continue cooking another min for sunny side up.
