Preparation time 10 mins Serves 4 people

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 small can salt-reduced pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 small corn tortillas

  2. Combine the beans, lime juice, cumin, and ½ tablespoon of oil in a medium bowl.
  3. Brush the tortillas on both sides with ½ tablespoon of oil and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until crisp, about 8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat and spray with oil. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook as desired, 2 to 4 minutes for slightly runny sunny-side-up eggs.
