Fried Egg Tacos


Poker nights are always fun; unwinding the day around the cards and chips and friends is how life should be! The nights are filled with laughter and gossips; secrets are spilled, promises are made. And then there are those little confessions, that reminds every one of the trust and loyalty we share, the tears  that doesn’t need to be held back and the laughter’s that doesn’t have to be subtle. Yes the girl’s poker night is a therapy every women need even if there is hardly any game played!


But before we can call it a night a trip to kitchen is mandatory and this is the time where today’s recipe does it magic. A simple fried egg taco topped with generous load of salsa… Perfection! “Fried Egg Tacos” are your true best friend, never lets you down and is always there for you whenever you need it!


Commonly known as Ranch-Style Eggs; this is a famous breakfast dish in Mexico and there are many different varieties for this deliciousness. I like to call these babies simply “Fried Egg Tacos”. Eat these tacos as breakfast, a quick lunch or a lazy dinner; they always taste delicious. You can add some meat or beans or may be veggies to these tacos if you want to make them little fancier. But for me a perfectly cooked egg and a simple salsa does the trick every time.


So make this next time when you need a fast deliciousness and let me know how you liked them.

    Pico de Gallo

  2. Finely minced the garlic clove and add it to the bowl. Cut and squeeze the lime juice into the mixture. Finally add the salt and pepper and toss to mix everything well.

You can double/more the batch of salsa (Pico de Gallo) if you want more salsa or you plan to make the tacos for a larger crowd.

    Oh how I love a good Huevos Rancheros! Yours look very, very yummy and so simple. Those are the best! I’ve never seen someone make a messy, runny egg look so good! Girls’ poker night? Can I come? :)
