With Cinco De Mayo around the corner, I’m thinking all things Mexican. Whether you’re brunching with a group of friends or just want to feel festive by yourself for breakfast, lunch or dinner, these Huevos Rancheros with Sweet Potatoes definitely hit the spot! They are quite simple to make with just tortillas, sweet potatoes and eggs (you can also add black beans to the base) and then go nuts with the toppings as you wish! I love making a Mexican DIY taco bar when serving these to a group of friends because it makes eating them so much more fun when you an assemble and personalize them. What really makes these unique is the cumin chili spiced sweet potatoes that gives the Huevos Rancheros a sweet and savory kick. It’ll knock our socks off!
Here’s a close up of that runny yolk!
