Recipe for Huevos Rancheros Casserole

I’m obsessed with this recipe for Huevos Rancheros Casserole.

Recipe for Huevos Rancheros Casserole

This easy breakfast that’s healthy reminds me of the chile rellenos casseroles that showed up at the potlucks of my Northern California childhood in the hippy-dippy 1970s.

Back in those days a lot more than THC-A appeared at parties, but that’s a story for another blog post.

Easy Dish with Eggs

This heavenly one-pot huevos rancheros style dish is super easy to make.

Fry up an onion in olive oil, while that’s happening, whisk eggs and combine them with salsa and cheese. Dump that stuff over the onion, then bake in the oven and you’re good to go.

Egg Dish Baked in Oven

When you take the casserole out of the oven be sure to use an oven mitt.

That’s something Mr. Pantry sometimes forgets when he’s helping me in the kitchen. Don’t do that!

Easy Recipe for Crustless Quiche

I use the quiche recipes from my cookbooks and bake them without the crust when I’m in need of other keto egg casserole recipes.

Savory Vegetable Quiche
Above is the Savory Vegetable Quiche recipe from Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. It’s a bit lighter than my recipe for Huevos Rancheros Casserole and it’s packed with veggies.

But if you’re looking for the easiest recipe for crustless quiche, my Huevos Rancheros Casserole takes the cake.

If you’re a fan of recipes for crustless quiche like I am, my Huevos Rancheros Casserole is the ultimate! Serve this with sliced avocados and sour cream to take it up a notch. Now that’s keto heaven.

Seems like the simplest thing, but you’d be surprised how many people ask me how to make Fruit Salad.

I taught my boys how to make fruit salad when they were little and they love it at brunch or for a healthy dessert.

We make our fruit salad with bananas, peaches, strawberries, and blueberries, and of course, no added sugar since fruit is nature’s candy. Feel free to toss in any other fruits you love!

  1. That looks great – I had a spicy dish last night. It has to be done, even during the summer months! Most of all it helps clear the airwaves and definitely makes me feel fresher and happier :D

    • DHR, I’m so happy to hear that I’m part of your church potluck via this recipe and that it is a great success!

  2. You may combine this with my earlier comment:

    I just made the recipe to take to a potluck :) It disappeared, which is the best recommendation at such a dinner.

    When I tried to follow the ingredient list I discovered that 2 cups of grated cheese is actually 8 ounces, not 4 ounces. Hoping someone will correct the recipe!

    • Susan, sorry I don’t have any way to combine comments. I Just remeasured 4 ounces of grated cheese and the yield is 2 cups. Perhaps you are packing your cheese into the cups. So glad to hear this casserole disappeared at a potluck :-)

  3. Does it need to be reheated if it has been refrigerated? Is it better the 2nd day?

    I am going to a potluck, how is it at room temperature?

  4. Wow, Wow! This looks so delicious, I have a restaurant and I always try to add new items to my menu finally found this on your blog. Can’t wait to try it my own restaurant. Thank You for sharing all the recipe and instruction with us Elana.

  5. Is there another place I could find the nutrition info for this recipe? I’ve recently started on a keto diet and still need to keep track of macros. It’s still too early with this way of eating to know how certain foods and recipes will affect me. Thank you!

  6. This is delicious and yes, it is so easy! My iron skillet is 12″, so I baked it in a different, ceramic pan, but it turned out so pretty! My husband must have commented five times how good it is! And I make crustless quiches regularly. This will be made many times. I will say that my casserole dish made it deeper, so it took a lot longer to bake, I would go with a larger dish next time, maybe an 8″ square one. YUM! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • Nancy, thanks for all of your awesome comments here and on Instagram! I’m so glad that you and your husband are enjoying this casserole! We love it too :-)
