Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 12 large fried flour tortilla chips (1 large burrito size flour tortilla quartered and fried).
  • 1 (15oz) can of seasoned black beans
  • 1 Tablespoon of Margarine
  • ¼ cup of small diced yellow onion
  • ¼ cup of small diced green pepper
  • One link or 4 ounces of diced chorizo (dried, not fresh)
  • ½ cup of shredded cheddar
  • ½ cup of shredded Monterey Jack
  • ¼ cup of salsa (your favorite brand)
  • ¼ cup of sour cream
  • ¼ cup of fried or pickled Jalapeños
  • Tablespoon of sliced green onion for garnish
  • 4 eggs cook to preference

Recipe for Black Beans:

  1. Heat ½ tablespoon of margarine in a sauce pan, and sauté onion till soft and starting to color, add green pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes stirring often. 
  2. Add the chorizo and sauté for 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Add the black beans and cook for an additional 10 minutes for beans to thicken and soften. 

Assembly:

  1. Line the chips flat with tips out and large part of the chip toward the center of oven proof plate or a casserole dish.  
  2. Using a slotted spoon, cover the large part of the chips with the bean mixture leaving at least ½ of the chip (tip part) exposed.   
  3. Top all the chips and bean mixture with a mix of both cheeses. 
  4. Melt cheese on the chips in a broiler.  While cheese melts, cook eggs how you like them in a non-stick pan with ½ tablespoon of margarine. 
  5. Top the chips, beans and cheese with the eggs, then salsa, a good size spoonful of sour cream, green onions and Jalapeno’s.
  6. To fry the Jalapeno’s: Drain pickled Jalapeno’s and toss in all-purpose flour let sit for one minute then knock off excess and fry in 350-degree oil for 5-6 minutes.    

Enjoy!
