Mexican Breakfast Skillet & a Giveaway
There is nothing much to this recipe, but I liked it so much, I had to share it with you.
It's really just black beans and eggs.....but by adding a few other ingredients, this became a delicious lunch (or dinner!).
I added the roasted sweet potato, because I always have one leftover (I eat one almost daily along with an avocado).
I was inspired by Jamie Oliver's recipe "All Day Mexican Breakfast" in his fantastic new book 5 Ingredients Quick & Easy Food.
Drain a can of black beans and add them to olive oil in a big nonstick skillet. I added in some garlic for extra flavor (you can use a flavored olive oil too).
Add some sliced chilis or sliced red bell pepper to the skillet, and toss arounds with the garlic and beans.
While the beans are warming, make a few wells in the middle and crack some eggs in the spaces. Sort of like you are making a shakshuka.
If using sweet potato, add in the chunks (cooked of course) now.
Cook the eggs until the desired consistency.....I like them runny so I can dip bread in the yolk.
Turn off the heat and add some chopped scallions, and sliced avocado to the top.
Season with plenty of sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
You are ready to dig in.
This is a great dish packed with fiber and protein from the eggs, sweet potatoes and healthy fats from the avocado.
So far everything I have made in this book has been simple and pretty great.
I haven't done a giveaway in a while, so today, I have 2 copies of Jamie's new book for some lucky readers!
