Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tsp. olive oil over medium heat.

  2. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about two minutes or until the garlic has softened.

  3. Add 2 cups of black beans, ¼ tsp. ground cumin, 1 tsp. limejuice, salt, and pepper to saucepan and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes while you prep the rest of the taco ingredients.

  4. In a bowl, whisk together ½ cup plain Greek Yogurt, 2 tbsp. lime juice, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

  5. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place the Casa Mendosa™ tortillas into the hot skillet one at a time and cook for approximately 5 seconds on each side, until they are warmed and slightly charred. Remove tortillas and set aside.  

  6. In the same skillet (allow the skillet to cool for a few minutes, so that the butter doesn’t burn), melt 1 tbsp. butter over medium heat. 

  7. Crack eggs into the skillet and cook to your desired level of doneness. 

  8. Top each Casa Mendosa™ tortilla with a large spoonful of black beans and a few slices of avocado.

  9. Top each taco with a cooked egg and garnish with a dash of salt and pepper, cilantro, and a generous drizzle of lime crema. 

  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
