    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Plum tomatoes, chopped 2
    White onion, chopped ¼
    Garlic clove, chopped 1
    Cilantro 1 + 2 tablespoons
    Canola oil 1 + 2 teaspoons
    Salt ¼ + 1/8 teaspoon
    Corn tortillas 2
    Eggs 4
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Refried beans, warmed on the stove ½ cup
    Reduced-fat sour cream 2 tablespoons
    Avocado, diced ½
    Shredded Monterey Jack cheese ¼ cup
    1. In a blender or food processor, combine the tomatoes, onion, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and garlic until almost smooth.
    2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add tomato sauce and cook until thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in ¼ teaspoon salt and set aside.
    3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat in another large skillet and cook tortillas about 5-10 seconds on each side, until softened. Set on paper towels to drain.
    4. Break the eggs into the same skillet over medium heat and cook to desired degrees of doneness (cover the skillet if you like the yolk firm). Season with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper.
    5. Dip each tortilla in the tomato sauce and place in the middle of a plate. Spread half of the beans over each tortilla, top with fried eggs, the spoon over the remaining sauce.
    6. Garnish with sour cream and avocado, sprinkle with cheese and 2 tablespoons cilantro, and serve.
