These tacos are on our breakfast or brunch menu every Saturday and Sunday. But ... don't stop there, as they're easy and quick enough for busy weekday mornings. Breakfast never looked so good!" -JSR
8 whole eggs (or beaten, if making scrambled eggs)
8 flour or corn tortillas, warmed
2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup Atlantic Sea Farms Sea-Chi, plus more for serving
Freshly ground black pepper
Add olive oil to a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, crack eggs into frying pan and cook until desired doneness, working in batches. Cover the cooked eggs with tin foil until all eggs
are fried. (If making scrambled eggs, add all eggs to a medium-sized bowl and beat well. Add to heated and oiled frying pan and stir until cooked through and fluffy.)
Assemble tacos by adding eggs, cheese, avocado slices, black beans and Sea-Chi to each warmed tortilla.
Top with black pepper. Serve tacos with additional Sea-Chi, if desired.
