This simple dish comes together in just minutes for a quick and satisfying breakfast.

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 4 eggs, over easy
  • ¼ cup Cotija cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Heat beans, salsa, salt, pepper and cumin in a small pan and over medium heat.
