[Recipes] Huevos Rancheros, The Magical Mexican Muscle-Builder

Mexican food might be the most underrated lean-body powerhouse in the dietary universe. Even Chipotle can be a legitimate superfood with a little tweaking and clever manipulation. Enter our magical Huevos Rancheros — an unbelievably simple, nutritious recipe to infuse a little lean, robust Mexican flavor into your diet.

Every component in this version of Huevos Rancheros absolutely oozes nutritional gold. With 225 calories, 21 g of muscle-building protein, 9.5 g of hunger-blasting fiber, 8 g of net carbs and healthy fats galore, it’s a BIG way to spark new muscle growth and keep your belly tight. Outside of the Lucky Charms leprechaun, who ever said healthy eating couldn’t be magically delicious?

Cook & Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2


1. Add 1/2 cup of black beans (I like Goya organic black beans) to a saucepan and place over medium heat. Season with freshly cracked pepper and kosher salt. Leave over heat for 5 minutes.

2. While the beans are cooking, spray a frying pan with PAM and add the egg and egg whites. Sprinkle fresh pepper, kosher salt, red pepper flakes, and/or hot sauce (I like Frank’s) to taste. Cook over medium heat and scramble until well-done (~3 minutes).

3. Once the eggs finish cooking, place a flax roll-up in another frying pan over low/medium heat and allow it to crisp up (~3 minutes).

4. After the roll-up is warm, crispy, and slightly golden, turn the heat on low and top with the beans and eggs.

5. Smather the tortilla with freshly sliced avocado and salsa verde – feel free to dump & mix everything into a messy pile or keep the ingredients evenly separated. Let it sit over low heat for 2 minutes.

6. Transfer to a plate. Cut in half into two servings. Enjoy.
