Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1¬† 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste, or minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, with their juices
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup small basil leaves
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, beans, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt. Saut√© until the onion and bell pepper are soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook for about 10 minutes until they begin to gently simmer.

  • Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and gently simmer for 10 minutes, or until the egg whites firm up but the yolks remain runny.
  • Serve topped with the basil leaves and avocado (if using).
