These "ranch-style eggs" are inspired by a mid-morning breakfast enjoyed by ranchers on rural Mexican farms: fried eggs and fresh toppings served over tortillas. To make this, you only need a handful of simple ingredients, but they pack a ton of flavor. My version is low carb, keto, and vegetarian.
- Warm Tortillas (Note 4): Set aside sheet pan or 4 serving plates to hold tortillas. Heat skillet over medium heat until hot, a few minutes. One at a time, place tortilla on skillet and cook until warmed, about 1 minute per side, then transfer to prepared sheet pan or serving plates.
- Cook Eggs: Add 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to now-empty skillet over medium heat. Crack 2 eggs on opposite sides of skillet, cooking until whites are nearly cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip eggs with spatula and cook another 30 seconds to firm up other side, then transfer to tortillas. Add remaining olive oil to pan, and repeat with remaining 2 eggs.
- Add Toppings: Chop avocado and divide among tortillas. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of salsa and 1 tablespoon crumbled cheese onto each tortilla. Season with black pepper, and serve (Notes 5-6).

Julia, you blew it. I’d use your Instant Pot Chili Verde instead of the salsa. Being from the Southwest this dish is on most all restaurants in Colorado and New Mexico. It’s almost always served with green chili verde. Sometimes red(ugh). The only ingredient missing is refried beans on the tortilla. Of course, that’s not keto or even low carb so I’ve thrown some seasoned cauliflower rice on the tortilla and it almost works.
But the chili verde if made properly is the star of this dish.
Hi, Julia – thanks for another great low carb recipe – you’re definitely my go-to in that department.
I don’t know if you’re interested or not, but I ran across another source of low carb tortillas the other day. I’ve not tried them yet, but i have a package on order to give them a go. They *claim* that they have only one gram net carbs per tortilla. I guess we’ll see…
