Mornings can be hard. What makes them better? Combining delicious, fluffy eggs with chicken, veggies, and spices to create an (easy-to-make) explosion of flavor and texture. Please, meet our ranchero chicken and eggs!

This ranchero chicken and egg recipe is my unique take on huevos rancheros. I use scrambled eggs instead of a fried egg. This is perfect for people who don’t like runny yolks or prefer the texture of scrambled eggs. (It’s also way easier when you’re not quite awake yet.)
