  • 1/4 cup mashed black beans
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 2 large Heritage Breed eggs by Happy Egg Co.
  • 2 corn tortillas warmed
  • 2 Tbsp green chili salsa warmed
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 Tbsp green onions finely chopped (optional)


  • First prepare the black beans by emptying the entire can of beans (with liquid) into a small saucepan and heating over medium-high heat. Add Kosher salt. As mixture warms, use a potato masher to mash the beans and continue mashing until you reach desired texture. Set aside.
  • Heat a non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat. Carefully crack two eggs into the pan without breaking the yolk. Cook for 2 minutes, then lower heat to low and cover eggs. This will help a film form over the eggs. Cook eggs for one minute, then turn off heat and set aside.
  • Place warmed corn tortillas on a large plate, then add black beans, eggs, salsa, avocado and green onions (optional). Serve warm.


The eggs pictured in this recipe are Heritage Breed eggs by Happy Eggs. They are the free-est of the free eggs raised on pastures. The yolk is amber orange, giving this dish it's bright color.
Sunny side up egg not your thing? Scramble or prepare your eggs over hard. However you crack it, eggs are good for you!
For a lighter dish, serve with only one corn tortilla, or nix the tortillas altogether!
