Hearty breakfast for cold mornings: Huevos Rancheros with pico de gallo

Huevos Rancheros with beans sqI hope you enjoy this sponsored post and Huevos Rancheros with pico de gallo recipe on behalf of Bush’s Beans. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

I’ve talked before about how much I love beans for feeding our large family, and I discussed how they can make a great appetizer, lunch, or dinner. But, now it’s time to show how Bush’s Beans can make breakfast flavorful, delicious, and filling.

Huevos Rancheros Bush's Beans 2Why do we love beans?

Not only do they fill up a crowd, they are also inexpensive, which makes them ideal for large families. They also have fiber and protein, which makes beans a great option for going meatless. 6a0105362badb1970b01b8d29657b3970c-800wiBut, my number one reason for loving beans is that they are versatile so you can make all sorts of creative recipes and never feel like you are eating the same meals over and over again.

Need more reasons? Well, they are also super quick to make so you don’t end up stuck in the kitchen all day, and they are even ideal when family just stops by unexpected since there’s no prep work.

I always make sure I have tons of Bush Brothers beans on hand and I pick them up every time I run to Walmart. They are now one of our main pantry staples and we have no less than 6 varieties at all times, from pinto to kidney to black beans and a whole variety of Bush’s Baked Beans, as well as garbanzo beans to make homemade hummus. Huevos Rancheros Bush's BeansThis weekend, I decided to make Huevos Rancheros, a dish I’ve always loved, but have never once tried to make at home. After trying it out, my whole family is in love and this recipe is definitely going to be on our monthly meal rotation – for breakfast as well as a quick and easy dinner.

I loved how simple the prep was, and since I made the pico de gallo the previous day, the whole thing took mere minutes from opening the can until serving.
