Eggs are really amazing!  Aside from being incredibly delicious scrambled, poached, fried, soft or hard boiled, they are incredibly healthy! 

One little egg has 6 grams of complete protein.  Your body needs protein to form muscle, repair tissue, and transport nutrients.  Proteins are made of amino acids and our bodies can produce all but 9.  Those 9 are essential amino acids that must consume from food.  Not all foods contain all 9, but a balanced diet can provide all 9.  Food that has all 9 essential amino acids is called a Complete Protein and examples are red meat, poultry, fish, milk, cheese, yogurt, soybeans, quinoa, and EGGS. 

Eggs also contain Vitamins A, B5, B12, B6, B2, D, E, and K!  They have Calcium, zinc, Folate, Phosphorus, and Selenium.  Check out more health benefits of Eggs here.

So, if your kids suddenly wake up one day and no longer like chicken or beef after loving it the day before, no worries!  Just give them eggs!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR SKILLET EGGS IN SPICY TOMATO PEPPER SAUCE

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details) 

For this recipe, there are actually two levels of prep that you can tackle.  You can simply dice the onion, chop red pepper, mince the garlic, measure out the spices, chop the cilantro and store it all in the fridge and call it day.

Or you can take it one more step and cook the sauce entirely and store it in the fridge.  The the night or morning you plan to eat it, warm it up in a skillet, then add the eggs and cheese.  

So, let’s get right into the cooking.

 

COOK YOUR SKILLET EGGS IN SPICY TOMATO PEPPER SAUCE 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place 4 tortillas on a sheet pan, brush with olive oil, and lightly salt. Heat for 10 minutes, then flip tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 or until crisp.  I tried this step in advance, but the tortillas became chewy and when reheated, overcooked.  Therefore, I don’t recommend doing this ahead, just do it while you are cooking the sauce/eggs.

For the sauce, you need a large frying pan or skillet.  I use my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a lid, which is perfect for these types of sauce that need to simmer.  

The sauce is soooo simple!  Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large sauté pan preheated on medium heat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic. Sauté for 8 minutes, stirring frequently to ensure the garlic and onions do not burn.Diced onion, red pepper, and garlic in skillet cooking for Skillet Eggs in Spicy Tomato Pepper Sauce with Manchego Cheese.

Crack the eggs, one at a time, in a separate cup so that you can fish out any shell pieces. With a spoon, make a ‘hole’ in the sauce and pour the egg into it. Do this for all 4 eggs, making sure to space them evenly over the sauce. Sprinkle the cheese over top.  TIP: I like to sprinkle it all around the yoke, leaving that beautiful yellow yoke poking through.

Black Beans are Magical! High Protein, High Fiber, and Gluten Free!

Black Beans are pretty amazing in terms of health benefits.  They have a whopping 15g of protein and 15g of Fiber in 1 cup! It’s recommended that Women get 25g of Fiber daily, but most women are not getting this much in their diet.   When I checked my daily fiber intake, I was only at about 15g and was really surprised!!  Track your Fiber for a day or two and see how you stack up. 

Black beans are a great source of Fiber, especially if you are eating a gluten free diet and may not be getting fiber from grains.  Try my Easy Brazilian Black Beans or Chickpea & Black Bean Cakes with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce or my Creamy Cajun Beans & Cauliflower over Quinoa for a few other great way to make these!

The best part about these is that you can make tons right on sheet pans and let people take as many as they want. Then you can save whatever is left to warm up later. Yum and yum again!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

The beans are the first component that you can completely prepare ahead and then reheat.  These are simply blended in a mini food processor with a garlic clove, chili powder, cumin, and water.  I love mine with some texture, so I pulse until its a nice mix and there are no huge chunks of garlic.  After blending, you will cook the beans on the stove for about 10-15 minutes until all of the flavors are melded together.

While the beans cook, you can make the tomato sauce, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. 
On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs. Store your ‘Kit’ in the fridge!  

COOK YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS 

When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches. Spray or brush the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.  Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center. When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove. Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat.  For little kids you can of course swap these with scrambled eggs. 

Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.  Next drizzle the tomato sauce and add a sprinkle of cheese, then scallions, and cilantro.

  3. After blending, add the beans to preheated saucepot with 1 tsp olive oil.  Stir the beans around as they cook so as not to burn. Turn the heat down to med-low and cook COVERED for 10 minutes.

  4. Tomato Sauce: While the beans cook, you can mix together in a bowl, the tomato sauce, chili powder, and cumin.  Taste for seasoning and add salt or adjust other seasonings as you like.

  5. Finally, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. Place these in separate storage bags.
  6. Store your 'Kit' in the fridge! On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs.

Final Cook and Assembly

  1. When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

  2. Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches.  Spray the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top. Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center.  When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

Recipe Notes

If you have small kids, you can certainly swap the runny fried egg with scrambled or just fully cook the yoke when frying.
