  • 1 corn tortilla
  • Oil spray (such as Chosen Foods avocado oil spray)
  • 4 large eggs
  • splash of milk
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small fresh jalapeno, seeds removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup refried black beans (or any other beans you have)
  • 1/4 cup pico de gallo
  • 1/2 small avocado, sliced
  • 2 tbsp crumbled cotija or shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salsa or hot sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Cut tortilla into 1/4 in-wide strips. Spray with oil and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 5-7 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  2. Heat beans.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk until combined and fluffy. Set aside.
  4. Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Spray with oil and add onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  5. Turn heat to low, spray again, and add eggs. Cook over low heat, pushing eggs from outside of pan to the center with a rubber spatula, until almost done. Add cooked veggies, tortilla strips, and 2 tbsp cilantro to the eggs and continue cooking until eggs are set.
  6. To assemble, divide eggs between two bowls. Add beans, pico de gallo, avocado, cheese, and remaining cilantro. Top with your favorite salsa or hot sauce. Enjoy!
