It’s a baby made of two of my all-time favorite morning meals! Which breakfast dish is more popular, Eggs Benedict or Huevos Rancheros?! With this Mexican take on Eggs Benedict, you won’t have to decide. My fiance has requested this vegetarian Mexican dish twice in the past week. Using an egg poaching hack that only requires a muffin tin and a food processor for the Hollandaise sauce, this is a breeze. Skip the butter in the Hollandaise (it’s not necessary!) and make a leaner “chorizo” to cut down on the excess fat. The chorizo was made with tofu, but ground turkey works just as well. You can also use guacamole or avocados as a topping.

Having this easy breakfast is the best way to experience the vibrant flavors and aromatic spices of Mexico. In no time, this breakfast will be cherished by all members of the household.
