    I love Huevos Rancheros. I rate restaurants by their ranchero sauce. It seems to me that ranchero sauce has more onion flavor and picante sauce has more tomato flavor. Is there a difference between a ranchero sauce used on Huevos Rancheros and a picante sauce used as a table condamet?

    You can almost bet that anything ranchero or a la ranchera will come in a coarse, picante tomato sauce—what you might expect for “ranch” style. The picante can be little serranos (or habaneros in Yucatán), dried chiles de árbol, even chipotlesor long green chiles—whatever happens to be the regional choice or the find of the moment.
