Huevos Rancheros Waffles (GF)


Don’t even pretend you’re shocked that we waffled this one. We’ve been on a serious Mexican kick in the Cooper household, and what better way to break our fast than the always delicious huevos?


For the waffles:

  • 1 cup masa harina
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the black beans:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 an onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • salt & black pepper, to taste

For the toppings:

  • 2 eggs, fried sunny-side up
  • grated cheese
  • cilantro, chopped

1. Preheat your waffle maker to a medium heat setting. Mix together masa harina, water, and salt until you get a smooth dough. Separate the dough into two balls and flatten into disks by pressing the dough between your palms. Place into the waffle maker and cook for two cycles (about 10 minutes total).


2. While your tortilla waffles are cooking, prepare your beans. Heat a medium sauce pan with a tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add in your onions and cook, stirring often, until onions are translucent. Throw in the minced garlic and cook just until fragrant. Pour in the can of black beans, liquid and all. Sprinkle the cumin, chile powder, and cayenne over the beans and stir in the lime juice. Allow this mixture to bubble up and thicken for several minutes. Using the back of a wooden spoon, smash about half the amount by pressing the beans against the side of the pan. Season with salt and pepper.


3. Crack your two eggs into a preheated sauté pan and cook until whites are just set. Season with salt and pepper, of course.


4. When the tortilla waffles are cooked through and slightly browned, move to a plate for assembly. Top with a heaping spoonful of black beans, a generous sprinkling of shredded cheese, a beautifully fried egg, a plethora of fresh pico, a second sprinkling of cheese (for good measure), and a pinch or two of chopped cilantro. Enjoy this new waffled twist on a classic Mexican dish.
