Authentic Mexican Huevos Divorciados Recipe

Here is the recipe for the famous divorced eggs. Enjoy!


(Serves 2)


  1. In a frying pan with hot oil, fry the tortillas, trying not to leave them too toasty. Remove excess fat and reserve.

  2. Using the same pan, cook two fried eggs separately.

  3. In different pans, fry each of the sauces. Heat the beans too.

  4. Serve the tortillas as a base on a plate, add beans in the center of the tortilla, add red sauce on one side and green sauce on the other. Incorporate the eggs on top (one on each side)

  5. Sprinkle the cotija cheese on top and garnish it with cilantro.

The classic recipe is made with sunny-side-up eggs but nothing says you can't make them with scrambled eggs, or any other way you like.
