Huevos Rancheros Tostadas with Creamy Tomatillo Salsa
Let me first start this Bachelorette talk off by saying…my heart is broken for James Taylor. That guy was insecure AF, rightfully so since he was swimming hair deep in a group of men who have been styling their locks since age 6, but I came around to really adore the guy. He was the only one that was truly funny and goofy and easy to like. And sadly, hair goes away. But humor never fades. Truth bomb for ya.
I was so bummed for the guy. And JoJo obviously was too because she FINALLY cried tears. Have you noticed on all the other occasions where she was crying, no tears were shed? That’s weird, right? That’s not actually crying. That’s just making an unpleasant face. She would always act like she was wiping a tear or fixing her makeup, but no tears were being shed, meaning no wiping needed to occur. But she was for sure sad for JT. You will be missed, you little lovely singer, you. PS have you seen his IG lately? Looks like this boy has been getting in the gym. You go, Glen Coco!
I’m glad Alex finally got the boot. I’m not sure why she made out with him so much if she was still unsure about him, but who am I to judge. I would probably make out with him too if ABC took me around the world with a bunch of hot dudes. He did tell JoJo that he was her goocho, which was probably his demise on the date. Just google gooch and the Urban Dictionary will help you out with understanding why that’s just not something you want to say to anyone, really ever. Unless you’re my pyro 13 year old next door neighbor. I may start calling him that soon. Thanks for the inspiration, Alex!
PS remember when the cowboy was straddling the horse. That made me feel weird. Then they made out with each other while cuddling the horse. Pretty much everything about the date was the worst.
I’m kind of starting to like all the dudes less and less. Robby was wearing hotel slippers while he took the bus to wherever the hell they were. Are you suppose to take those? From what I understand, no. Because they are pretty much bathmats on your feet, not actual shoes. Then Jordan said he was a super picky eater. Men being picky eaters is so weird to me. And unattractive. What does picky mean? Like you don’t eat fast food, that kind of picky? Because that’s cool. But if you’re the type that won’t eat something your date made you for you, because you’re not a “avocado texture” kind of person, then you’re just a d*ck. Plain and simple
The only person I really kind of like and want to win is Luke. He’s so bruiting and manly and bow legged. I’m bow legged on one leg so I support my fellow horse riding’ looking humans. And he seems nice. I think I like him because I like guys that don’t smile much. They’re so mysterious and hard to read. I thought my husband was a complete douche for a good year because he never smiled when he was at the gym. Turns out, he’s pretty much the greatest human to roam this earth.
Holy moly, I can’t wait until meeting the parents next week. Yaaaaaaassss. And I REALLY REALLY can’t wait for Bachelor in Paradise. Trash tv is just the best.

Huevos Rancheros Tostadas with Creamy Tomatillo Salsa
- Yield: 6 tostadas 1x
For the tomatillo salsa
- 6 tomatillos, husked
- 1/4 white onion
- 1 large jalapeño
- 2 garlic cloves
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 1/2 avocado
- hefty pinch of salt
For the cauliflower puree
- 1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
For the tostadas
- 6 Siete Cassava Coconut Tortillas of my Tortillas from Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook
- coconut oil spray
- pinch of salt
- 1 pound breakfast sausage
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 avocado, sliced
- 2 red jalapeños, sliced
- handful of cilantro, chopped
- freshly cracked black pepper and pink peppercorns, to garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place tomatillos, onion and jalapeno in a greased pan over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes then add garlic and cook for another 5 minutes, turning every couple minutes to cook on all sides evenly. Remove from heat to cool slightly. Place in high speed blender along with lime juice, cilantro avocado and salt and puree until smooth and combine. Taste to see if any extra salt or lime juice needs to be added for preference. Set aside.
- Steam the cauliflower until fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer the steamed cauliflower to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. It should resemble mashed potatoes. Add the garlic powder and salt and puree once more. Set aside.
- Cook breakfast sausage, breaking apart the meat into bite size pieces. Cook until no pink remains then set aside, leaving behind the excess fat for cooking the eggs in.
- Cook eggs over low heat. Cooking them low and slow will make sure that the white cooks through while keeping the yolks runny.
- Now to make the tostadas: spray each Siete tortilla with coconut oil spray on both sides and sprinkle with salt. Place on a baking sheet to bake for 7-8 minutes, flipping half way through to help cook evenly. Once the tortillas are warm and crispy, spread some cauliflower puree on top of each along with a scoop full of breakfast sausage, an egg, tomatillo salsa, red jalapeños, cilantro, pepper, and a couple slices of avocado.
- Serve immediately and enjoy every bite!

Yum! I will definitely be making these soon. I always have Siete tortillas in the freezer- big hit around our house! AND I love your review of The Bachelorette! It is spot on!! ????
This post just made me laugh out loud! That horse date was SO awkward, and I immediately commented on Robby wearing the hotel slippers while I was watching the episode! Haha:) I’m with you on Team Luke too!!
I’ve pretty much given up watching this season of the Bachelorette…. in favor of reading your reviews. They are just the best. It makes me sad that she gave James Taylor the boot. He was pretty much the only one left that I liked. But it was easy to see it coming. I’m excited for Bachelor in Paradise though!
JT rumored to be the next Bachelor!
Juli – I’m so excited for this tomatillo salsa.
Side note – I just had a jalapeno cilantro pesto from Whole Foods Wash Park and it was amazing. I’m sure it shouldn’t be to hard to remark? I found your poblano cilantro pesto, so I assume just sub with a jalapeno. Right after I mentioned class pass, they are having a deal, 5 classes for $19, if you want to try it out.
damn that’s so cheap! yeah i bet you could make that pesto easily with just jalapeños instead! that sounds amazing!
I mean this in the nicest way possible but I think you mean brooding, not bruiting. 🙂
And these look delicious!
First, this meal looks AMAZING. I was drooling on your snapchat over the weekend.
I have read Reality Steve, so I know who wins. HOWEVER I have just been bored this season with these guys. I like Luke a lot too. I am really looking forward to Bachelor in Paradise, mainly because not only will Chad be there, but also the twins from Ben’s season!
Ewww, I just googled gooch. He really called her that?? Nope. Shut it down.
James Taylor may not have been the cutest of the bunch, but I think he was the sweetest. I was really sad to see him go. she told him he had all the qualities she was looking for in a husband. I think she made a mistake there.
yeah, what a dick move!
I’m hoping James Taylor hitting the gym means he will be the next Bachelor! Which I see above is a rumor- yes! Mostly because I can’t stand any of the other remaining guys. And also if she does not pick Luke I will be very upset. And I’m absolutely DYING to know what the proposal teaser is about where she says “what you did to me is not ok!” which I thought was about Jordan, but after seeing the home town previews for next week, is maybe Robby?! These boys have a lot of back story drama!
Also I’m pumped about this recipe 🙂
Thanks for this recipe – it looks amazing! Do you happen to have an estimate on the weight for the tomatillos for this recipe? My store has had tiny tomatillos lately, so I’m trying to determine how many of the tiny ones would equal the 6 you use for this recipe. Thanks again!
This looks delicious! I’ve been wanting to try those tortillas. Question for you- what kind of camera do you use for your shots? Do you use an extra lights besides natural sunlight?
i use a canon and i trade out lenses depending on the shot! i really like my 55 lens because you can get so close! and i use natural light for photos, never any extra lights. but i do edit my photos in lightroom to help brighten them up or edit anything out! hope that helps!
Haha I laughed so hard at the comment about the horse date, it was just soo weird and he looked so funny in his lil outfit. Also agree about the Jordan being a picky eater thing, total turnoff and it just made me think he is probably very high maintenance in real life. I can’t waitttt till Paradise, this season of the bachelorette has been quite boring so I am in need of some entertaining trash reality TV!
YUM, take me to Mexico for huevos rancheros PUHLEASE 😀
Just made these this morning… New favorite breakfast!! So freaking good. Your recipes are the best!
wooooohoooo!! so glad you tried it out and loved it!!
This recipe would be easier if you just opened a restaurant and served me????
Your bachelorette comments cracked me up bc my daughter isn’t watching this season (until it comes to Netflix).
I’d like to see one season with no kissing. It’s gross how they French kiss guy after guy in about an hour.
Can’t you get a disease somewhere in all that saliva, lol?!
I am going to dumb down that recipe somehow tomorrow morning bc I am such a good wife.
Thanks for all your funny rants and delicious recipes!!!!
You just made me laugh out loud, multiple times, haha. The recipe looks delicious, I’m gonna have to try it tomorrow. Your blog is amazing, I’m obsessed! (and btw, love the mean girls reference! hahah)
This not only looks amazing, it tastes amazing. I topped mine with crispy fried eggs and I swear I am in love.
