Huevos rancheros with salsa ranchera

November 04, 2021

This recipe is a long-time favourite of our guests at Hotel Bel-Air, enjoyed both at breakfast and at our popular Sunday brunch on the terrace. It’s a traditional Mexican dish with a kick of chilli, which elevates this egg dish to a new level – a great way to start your day.
