One at a time, break an egg into a measuring cup and carefully slide the egg into the simmering sauce. Repeat with remaining eggs or huevos. Cover and simmer slowly for 3 to 5 minutes or till the whites have set and the egg yokes begin to thicken but are not hard.

Place each flour tortilla on a plate, top with 2 eggs, spoon rancheros sauce over top of eggs and sprinkle with cheese. Serve these huevos rancheros with a Mexican hot pepper sauce or salsa.
