Huevos Rancheros originate of course from Mexico, were they still are the preferred breakfast for the Mexican gauchos, working the cattle.
This breakfast dish is however strongly embraced by the Belizeans, and is in different versions served all over the Belizean eateries.
It is an excellent start for a day planned with heavy physical activities, like jungle hiking, canoeing of caving.
