Looking for a quick breakfast packed with flavors that are sure to wake you up first thing in the morning? This simple recipe starts with a warmed up corn tortilla layered with smashed black beans topped with an egg, salsa and cotija cheese.


• 1 corn tortilla.
• 2 Tbsp. black beans, smashed.
• 1 egg (cage-free if possible).
• 1 tsp. chopped cilantro.
• ¼ tsp. chili powder.
• ¼ tsp. ground cumin.
• 2 cherry tomatoes, chopped.
• 1 tsp. fresh squeezed lime juice.
• ¼ tsp. smoked paprika.
• ¼ tsp. jalapeno, finely chopped.
• ¼ cup mixed greens, finely chopped.
• 1 Tbsp. cotija cheese.
• Salt and pepper to taste.


1 – Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Coat both sides of the tortilla with cooking spray and a pinch of chili powder. Cook for 30 seconds on each side and place on a plate.
2 – Pull the skillet away from the heat and coat with cooking spray.
3 – Return skillet to stove, add beans, all spices and lightly smash beans. Cook for 2 minutes.
4 – Pour the beans over the tortilla. Wipe skillet out and place back on the stove. Coat the skillet with cooking spray. Cook egg until the yolk is set. Slide the egg on top of the beans.
5 – In a small bowl, toss greens, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno and tomatoes. Top beans with mixture and season with salt and pepper to taste.
6 – Top with cotija cheese. Enjoy!

Notes:Running short on time, use your favorite salsa instead. Enjoy the heat? Add more jalapeno (with seeds) and top with your favorite hot sauce.
