For the Black Beans:

  • For the black beans:
  • ½1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin
  • ½ teaspoon of paprika
  • ¼ cup of chopped onion*
  • 2 cloves of garlic*
  • ¼½ cup of broth

For serving:

  • Fried egg
  • Corn tortillas
  • Cilantro
  • Tomato
  • Sour cream or greek yogurt
  • Avocado


  1. In a medium skillet, heat your oil over medium heat. Once hot, add in the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add in the black beans, ¼ cup of broth, and spices. Cook until the black beans are heated through, stirring frequently. Using the back of a wooden spoon, lightly mash about ¼ of the black beans. You *can* skip this step but it creates a nice and creamy texture that’s very lovely! If black beans seem quite dry, add in a couple more tablespoons of the broth and heat through.
  3. Remove black beans from heat and divide among 2 plates. Top with fried eggs and other desired toppings! Serve with warm tortillas for a delicious breakfast taco.


  1. If wanting to make this quickly with little-no chopping, you can easily sub the onion and garlic for ½-1 teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder. I’ve tried this a few times and it’s still delicious.
  2. I recommend that this dish serves 2 but it would also make a great side dish for 4.
