    • 4 soft corn tortillas (6-inch diameter)
    • 1 tsp olive oil
    • 1/2 white onion, chopped
    • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
    • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 cup no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
    • 1/4 cup mild salsa
    • 2 tsp minced jalapeño pepper
    • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


    • Preheat oven to 425°.
    • Arrange tortillas on a baking sheet and warm in the oven, about 5 minutes. (Cover with foil for softer tortillas.)
    • In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes. Add bell pepper, cumin and beans and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, or until bell pepper is softened. Transfer bean mixture to a bowl. Set aside.
    • Lightly coat skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Break each egg into skillet and fry until just set, about 1 minute.
    • Remove the tortillas from the oven. Keep tortillas on baking sheet. Spoon some bean mixture onto each tortilla, then top each with 1 egg and 1 tablespoon cheese. Return to oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 6 minutes.
    • Top each egg with 1 tablespoon salsa, minced jalapeño and cilantro. Serve immediately.
