When busy mornings take over, you can still whip up a nutritious and flavor-packed breakfast with these Quick and Easy Baked Huevos Rancheros.
Okay, really? What the heck. How is it the end of August already?!
It seems like just last week that I had that huge last day of school – first day of summer vacation teacher grin on my face. Now it’s been replaced with those dreadful back to school commercials, constantly reminding me of the impending doom that is awaiting me as summer wanes down.
Another school year.
And another school year means way less time for breakfast. But I’m determined this year to get my days started off right. Goodbye scarfing down granola bars in the car, hello quick and easy baked huevos rancheros.
My love for Mexican and southwest flavors is no secret. I’m all about it.
…and the list goes on and on.
When I can have it first thing in the morning? #winning
And listen, it’s hard enough getting just Asheley and I ready in the morning… I can’t even imagine once you start throwing kids into the mix. But these baked huevos rancheros really are super quick for crazy hectic mornings, when you don’t want to sacrifice flavor in the name of ease.
Extra good news. Safest Choice™ eggs are pasteurized, so you and your family can totally go to town on these glorious runny yolks with confidence. They are the epitome of safe and taste in the egg world. #peaceofmind
In a perfect dreamy world, you’ll use these Homecooked Cowboy Beans as your refried beans. Cook them up as a dinner side dish over the weekend, and you’ll have plenty leftover for weekday morning breakfasts. But in a pinch, just grab some canned refried beans. It works just fine
But if you have Asheley in your house, there’s one thing you absolutely cannot skimp on. Avocado. The girl is all about the avocado. She’s already not a morning person… and then if you forget the avocado, well, it’s not pretty.
Bonus… throw in some leftover sauteed greens for extra nutrition in the morning. I had some cooked up swiss chard lying around. Spinach and kale would work great also. Heck, even thawed frozen greens would be a win in these Quick and Easy Baked Huevos Rancheros!
