easy backpacker recipes – huevos rancheros

Huevos Rancheros Huevos Rancheros is a traditional Mexican breakfast, but we rather eat it for dinner. It’s cheap, super simple, fast and…Healthy! Black beans are good for your heart and cholesterol, full of fosfor (strong bones and teeth) and they contain a lot of iron. This makes beans a perfect, budget wise substitution for meat. We love our huevos rancheros with the smooth texture of pebre, a South American condiment that we learned to prepare in Chile. If you like it more spicy, you can season the pebre with some chopped chilli and garlic. Serves 2
