Red Bean Breakfast Tacos



Yield 8 tacos



  1. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add diced onions and season with salt; cook for 3 minutes, or until translucent.
  2. Add minced garlic and continue to cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  3. Stir in beans; season with cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper.
  4. Continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until beans have softened.
  5. Remove from heat, and using the back of a fork or a potato masher, mash the beans until they resemble chunky mashed potatoes. Set aside. If you want smoother beans, return to heat and add 1/4-cup water; simmer until beans are thick and of spreading consistency. Set aside.
  6. In a large skillet, heat remaining olive oil over medium-high heat.
  7. Break eggs and gently slide into skillet, one at a time. (In my skillet, I can fit 3-4 eggs at a time.)
  8. Reduce heat to low and cook slowly until whites are completely firm and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard.
  9. Carefully slide a spatula under each egg and flip; Cook until desired doneness. Add more olive oil as needed.


  1. Evenly divide and spread prepared beans on warmed tortillas and top with cooked eggs.
  2. Add diced tomatoes & green chilies over the eggs.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Add diced avocados and squeeze fresh lemon juice over each prepared taco.
  5. Garnish with parsley or cilantro.
  6. Serve.
