“Get out of the scrambled eggs rut and spice up your day with this tasty and colorful breakfast tostada. It's a crisp tortilla shell that is layered with chorizo and onions, seasoned black beans, salsa, a fried egg, cheese, avocado, sour cream, and cilantro leaves. Just have lots of napkins on hand - they are messy (and fun) to eat!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Brush both sides of the tortillas with olive oil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet fry the chorizo and onion over medium heat, season with onion and garlic powders. Fry until the onion becomes translucent and the pork is thoroughly cooked, set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, use a fork to lightly mash the black beans. Season with cumin, corriander, salt, and tabasco sauce; set aside.
  5. Fry the eggs according to individual taste in a non-stick skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Spread each cooked corn tortilla with equal amounts of the mashed black beans followed by the chorizo mixture; top with a tablespoon of salsa, one egg cooked to order, a 1/4 cup of cheese, and another tablespoon of salsa.
  7. Place briefly under the broiler (1-2 minutes) to melt the cheese.
  8. Serve immediately, finishing with the avocado, a dollop of sour cream, and the cilantro.
