#foodiefriday Huevos Rancheros


We love this recipe when camping. Huevos Rancheros is a simple one pot meal and if you are staying on a farm make sure you get hold of some freshly laid eggs with beautiful yellow yolks.

This version is based on a recipe by Hemsley and Hemsley.

We hope you enjoy, let us know in the comments what your favourite camping recipes are and we may feature them on our blog.


  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 2 red peppers, halved lengthways then sliced into strips
  • 2 cans tomatoes or 10 medium tomatoes approx. 800g
  • 200ml water
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 eggs
  • a little cayenne or fresh red chilli to your taste, depends on the strength of your chilli
  • 1 small handful of strong cheddar cheese
  • 1 large handful of fresh coriander


  • Fry the onion, garlic, spices and bay leaves for 5 minutes until softened but not browned
  • Add the red peppers and fry for a further 5 minutes
  • Add in the tomatoes, stir, season with salt and pepper and bring to a medium simmer for about 10 mins until you have a thick sauce
  • Use a spoon to make 4 holes in the tomato sauce and crack an egg into each one. The eggs will poach in the sauce and cook in 4 about minutes for a runny yolk.
  • Season each yolk with sea salt and black pepper, spoon over guacamole (optional) and sprinkle with grated cheese
