Tortilla Flat Stacks with Avocado & Lime Black Beans

We've topped cumin-rubbed corn tortillas with mozzarella and scrambled eggs, then piled high a mixture of black beans, avocado, crunchy poblano chiles and a splash of lime for an intensely flavorful and textured start to your day.

Serves: 4
Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 12 minutes


  • 1 cup cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large poblano pepper, seeded and diced small
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 oz Mexican cheese blend mozzarella, shredded (1/2 cup)
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 8 egg whites

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine beans, pepper, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Gently fold in avocado and set aside.

Not having leftover cooked beans on hand doesn’t mean that you’ll have to start from scratch. Save time by opting for BPA-free canned black beans instead.
