Breakfast tostada

1 May

We made this tostada with some leftover black beans, zucchini, scrambled eggs, salsa, avocado and cilantro over a toasted corn tortilla. It was fresh and very satisfying. Yum!

desayuno delicioso (delicious breakfast)

hearty breakfast

It’s been so long since I’ve posted on here! I’ve been crazy busy at the office and the spring semester is almost over which equals crunch time! I haven’t stopped cooking or taking photos, I just haven’t been able to find the time or energy to put it all together for a post. I’m glad I found some time tonight in between a late-night cereal snack attack and bed time!

 
We made this hearty breakfast awhile ago and it was a great one! I made the black beans the same way I did here and we mixed the eggs with some chorizo I bought for another recipe. This was a protein-packed southwestern breakfast fit for a rey (king in Spanish)!

Last night we made grilled chicken fajitas with blue corn tortillas and they were so delicious and beautiful but I wasn’t able to get any photos of my plate before I devoured it because the Arizona/Duke game (one of the GREATEST WILDCAT GAMES EVER!) was on and I had my game-face on. I made the beans ahead of time and was able to snap a few pics of them.

I chopped up some onion and garlic, sautéed them in a little Pam cooking spray, added about half a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles, garlic salt and chili powder. I rinsed one can of black beans and added them to the pot. Brought it to a boil and then down to a simmer for ten minutes. I squeezed some lime on top and served in the fajita with chicken, guacamole, onion and green bell peppers, salsa, and shredded Monterey Jack. The beans were so good I saved the leftovers to bring to work today for lunch.
