Low Carb Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros is a traditional breakfast dish consisting made of eggs served in rural Mexico. The basic dish consists of fried eggs served upon fried corn or flour tortillas.  Its topped with a salsa made of tomatoes, chili peppers, onion, and cilantro. Refried beans,  Mexican-style rice, and guacamole are common accompaniments.  This low carb breakfast version tastes just as good as the traditional Huevos Rancheros dish but without all the added carbs.

This is a really easy low carb breakfast recipe to make. Make sure to pick avacados that are just ripe. To check if an avacado is ready to eat, gently squeeze the avocado without applying pressure from your fingertips, as this can cause bruising. If the avocado yields too firm, gentle pressure, it is ripe and ready to eat. It is recommended to refrigerate the guacamole and salsa for at least an hour. This allows the flavors to settle in.
