These baked huevos rancheros avocados are an easy, fresh, and light vegetarian low carb breakfast or snack idea.

Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes | Total Time 25 minutes

huevos rancheros avocados


  • 2 avocados halved
  • 4 eggs


  • 3 medium tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1/4 small onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro loosely packed
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper roughly chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Optional additions:

  • Tabasco sauce
  • Refried beans
  • Tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Place rack in middle position.
  2. Add the avocado halves to a baking sheet (cover with foil for easy clean-up) or a greased muffin tin. Add one egg to each avocado half. The egg whites will spill out a bit (you can scoop out more avocado or just use the yolks if you’re concerned about wastage).
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes for runny yolks, 15-17 minutes for over medium, and about 20 minutes for well done eggs. Each oven will vary, so use this as a rough guide.
  4. Meanwhile, make the salsa by adding the salsa ingredients to a food processor and then blending until everything is roughly mixed.
  5. Before serving, I like to add some salt and pepper to the avocado halves. Serve the avocado halves with the salsa and the optional accompaniments if desired (Tabasco sauce, refried beans, and tortillas).
