2large eggsI used Heritage Breed eggs by Happy Egg
2Tbspgreen chili salsawarmed
1Tbspgreen onionsfinely 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. The yolk is amber orange, giving this dish it's bright color. You could use any egg of choice.Sunny side up egg not your thing? Scramble or prepare your eggs over hard. For a lighter dish, serve with only one corn tortilla, or nix the tortillas altogether.
