Baked Huevos Rancheros


1/4 cup(s) extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 small green bell pepper, finely diced
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
1 clove(s) garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon(s) dried oregano, crumbled
Freshly ground pepper
1 can(s) (15-ounce) tomato sauce
1/4 cup(s) water
3 cup(s) tortilla chips
8 large eggs
3/4 cup(s) shredded Monterey Jack
Chopped cilantro, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring, until lightly browned, 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and water and simmer for 5 minutes, until slightly thickened.

Spoon the sauce into 4 individual, shallow baking dishes, and arrange the tortilla chips around the sides. Crack 2 eggs into each dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Set the dishes on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve right away.
