This was great! I smeared oil on flour tortilla`s instead of spraying them. I did like another reviewer, I fried the eggs, put them on & then the cheese & put them back in the oven that was still hot to melt the cheese & heat them up some more. My husband wanted two eggs on his & that worked also. Will definitely make again!

Wonderful! Part of my "eat less meat" series we're trying. I did mash some of the beans first, which I recommend (makes them very spreadable). I did fry my eggs separately. I layered egg, beans, cheese, then (since the oven was already on), baked them for a few minutes to melt the cheese. I also topped with a bit more picante, which was was ALL delicious, and hearty!

This was a delicious and fast Mexican dish. I used black beans because that was what I had on hand. Didn't have picante sauce either, so I blended 1/2 c. tomato sauce, 1/4 c. green onions, 2 tbs. green chilis and 1/4 c. tomatoes in the food processor. I will be making this again, thanks for posting!
