I found a Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend at the store which got me thinking that this would go great with tacos. I was thinking breakfast tacos but I wanted this for dinner so I went with a spicier flavor.
This is an easy meal and only requires a few ingredients.
- Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend – of course this
- Tortilla – homemade or store bought but of course homemade are so much better (but that will be another post)
- Cooked bacon
- A pinch of grated cheese of your choice
- 1 egg per tortilla
While doing the steps below start cooking the Southwest-Inspired Corn & Black Bean blend.
Cook the egg. What I found best for this recipe is a lightly scrabbled egg. Crack the egg and put is on the skillet as you would if you are going to prepare a fried egg. Cook until the white of the egg is nearly cooked then scramble the egg on the pan. Remove the egg while it is still light and fluffy.
Now you have to warm up the tortillas or they will just break apart when you try to build and eat them. A quick and easy way is to use the warm pan you just cooked the eggs in. Warm each side of the tortilla for about 30 seconds each side and when side 2 is up put the cheese on the tortilla while still in the pan to start melting it.
Now for the building stage. Remove the cheese topped tortilla from the pan and put it on your serving plate. Add the egg followed by the Southwest blend and finally the slice of bacon. Now wrap it up and add the side of choice if desired.
And the final result with a side of smashed potatoes. This was very tasty!
