Directions See How It's Made
- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Brush both sides of the tortillas with olive oil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until crisp.
- Meanwhile, in a medium skillet fry the chorizo and onion over medium heat, season with onion and garlic powders. Fry until the onion becomes translucent and the pork is thoroughly cooked, set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, use a fork to lightly mash the black beans. Season with cumin, corriander, salt, and tabasco sauce; set aside.
- Fry the eggs according to individual taste in a non-stick skillet. Season with salt and pepper.
- Spread each cooked corn tortilla with equal amounts of the mashed black beans followed by the chorizo mixture; top with a tablespoon of salsa, one egg cooked to order, a 1/4 cup of cheese, and another tablespoon of salsa.
- Place briefly under the broiler (1-2 minutes) to melt the cheese.
- Serve immediately, finishing with the avocado, a dollop of sour cream, and the cilantro.
