INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1  whole grain tortilla
  • ¼ onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ cup pinto beans, can be canned
  • 1 egg¼ avocado, sliced
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • Handful cilantro, to garnish
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. If using tortillas, lightly brush a pan with olive oil and heat both sides of the tortilla. Place it in your desired serving skillet or in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot add onion and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, and simmer on medium-low for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer the mixture to the tortilla skillet or bowl and use the pan to fry an egg. If you’re making multiple servings, then feel free to fry more than one egg. Over medium-high heat crack the egg open and cover the pan. Allow it to sit until the whites have set, but the yolk is still runny. Slide it over the tortilla and beans.
  4. Serve with sliced avocado and lime, garnish with coriander, and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
