Huevos Ahogados (Drowned Eggs)


Breakfasts in Mexico are wonderful. We love sitting at the table and enjoy our fresh made eggs, done in different ways, eating tortillas, drinking coffee and finish with a delicious Pan Dulce!

Huevos ahogados are these lovely eggs smothered in a spicy salsa, topped with fresh veggies. There are different versions of it, this is my family recipe! Enjoy!


  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 small garlic
  • 1 fresh jalapeño chilli
  • 2 cups water
  • Sea Salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

To garnish

  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander
  • Some fresh jalapeño slices
  • Avocado slices


  1. First make the salsa. Heat a frying pan and put the tomatoes, garlic, peeled onion & jalapeño directly on the very hot pan, no need to add oil.
  2. Charred the vegetables for 10 min. Keep turning them around so they charred evenly.
  3. After 10 min put them in a blender with 2 cups of water and blend until getting a smooth sauce.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet and add the sauce. Cook for 15 min and then add the eggs into the sauce. Cook the sauce with the eggs for 5 min.
  5. Serve in a bowl with plenty of salsa, so the egg drowns into it. Add some chopped coriander, slices of fresh jalapeño and avocado. Enjoy!
