  • 3 large eggs
  • 2, 6-inch round tortillas 
  • ½ green pepper diced
  • ½ onion diced
  • 1 cup pico de gaillo 
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese

  • ½ large white or yellow onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

Salsa Ranchera

  1. To prepare Salsa Ranchera, slice the tomatoes and jalapenos in half lengthwise and set them onto a cast iron pan or baking sheet, keeping the skin sides up. Then add the onion and garlic cloves to the pan.
  2. Now you need to keep the pan into the center of the oven and broil for about 20 minutes, or until the skins of the tomatoes and peppers blister up. Make sure tomatoes and jalapenos do not burn.
  3. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. 
  4. Now remove the skins from the tomatoes, peppers and garlic. Blend the tomatoes, peppers, garlic and onion in a food processor along with cilantro and salt. Blend until the paste becomes smooth.
  5. Season with salt to taste and the salsa is ready.

Rancheros Eggs

  1. To prepare the Ranchero eggs, fry onion and green pepper in a medium skillet and cover the lid and let it cook until it becomes tender.
  2. Then crack an egg and place in a small bowl without breaking the yolk. Put the lid on the skillet and poach on medium low heat for about 3-4 minutes for soft cooked eggs or 7-8 minutes for hard cooked eggs. Prepare all the eggs in the same way. 
  3. During the last minute, remove the lid and sprinkle cheese on the top of each egg. Cover to let the cheese melt.
  4. Remove each egg using a solid spatula and place on a tortilla. Garnish with salsa ranchera and corn tortilla chips. Your dish is ready to serve.
  5. Eat fresh and enjoy.

Ultimate street tacos!

Taco Palenque in New Braunfels is an excellent choice for Tex-Mex fast food. My husband and I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Our favorite is the Street Tacos, beef or pork, served with the best beans and caramelized onions. You can help yourself to a condiments bar with all kinds of salsas, picos, jalapeños, warm tortilla chips, etc. We love all of it! Give them a try, you’ll love the food and the friendly staff.

Excellent Drive Thru Service

I stopped for a burrito and a few tacos....beef fajitas were very flavorful. Burritos are hefty and a great value for the price! Meat tastes like they marinade it with seasinings. My wife and I were full from our humble drive thru order. We will definitely ride again to Taco Palenque!

Can't wait to Come Back

Everything I have eaten here is excellent. You cannot go wrong. The Matamoros taco is my favorite, grilled sirloin and avocado! The salsa bar is a nice touch. Just wish there was a Taco Palenque closer to me!
