  1. these sure look good, but not what I was expecting with the name huevos rancheros. I was expecting fried eggs on a fried corn tortilla with beans all covered in ranchero sauce. guess everyone has a different version. I’m gonna have to make some of these for the freezer, something you can’t do with my version….lol. They look much better than your normal breakfast burrito and I really like having stuff in the freezer to grab on those busy mornings when all I have time for is to grab and go.

  2. Genius! I love breakfast burritos, but there is no way I would make them in the morning before work. I never even thought about pre making them to freeze– can’t wait to try it out!

  3. Love your site! This recipe sounds so good. It has convinced me to get a tortilla maker. I’ve been toying with the idea but now it’s definite. I love the idea of my own healthy “fast food” breakfast with organic and low/no sodium. Thanks!

  4. These sound great. My only problem is that we don’t have a microwave. Could these be re-heated in a skillet or the oven? My toaster oven broke or I would throw that in there too 🙂 Any other ideas would be welcome as well. Thanks

    1. Theresa, absolutely the oven or toaster oven would work. If you did a skillet, it would crisp up the outside more than warm the inside probably but it could work. Let me know what you try and how it works out!

    1. Elle, I have been reheating mine in the microwave from frozen for about 1.5 minutes. It will obviously vary from microwave to microwave.
