Loaded Mexican breakfast tostadas

Fresh, filling, super simple and ready in just 15 minutes. 'Tostada' is Spanish for 'toasted' and in this recipe, we pan-fry the tortillas until they're golden and crispy then pile them high with fresh, flavour packed ingredients and a fried egg. This is one of my very favourite breakfasts.

Total time to make : 15 minutes Time to prep : 10 minutes

Time to cook : 5 minutes

Servings : 2


2 small tortillas

2 tsp olive oil

80g tinned black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp salt

40g feta cheese

1 avocado

2 eggs

Salsa, store-bought or I use my favourite salsa fresco

1/2 lime

Fresh coriander, to garnish


  1. Roughly mash the black beans with the smoked paprika and salt in a small bowl and set to one-side.

  2. Slice your avocado into cubes.

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan with 1 tsp olive oil over a medium - high heat then place in the tortillas, moving them around the pan to mop up the oil. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes until they are golden on the bottom, then flip them over.

  4. Spoon the black bean mash onto the tortillas whilst they're still in the pan, crumble over half of the feta cheese. Remove the tortillas from the pan and onto your serving plate.

  5. Keeping the frying pan on a medium - high heat, wipe any crumbs with a paper towel and then add in another tsp of olive oil. Crack in the eggs, frying for about 2 minutes until the egg whites have set and the yolk still has a wobble to it. Crumble the remaining feta over the eggs and season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then remove them from the pan and top each tortilla with a fried egg.

  6. Spoon the cubed avocado over the egg, salsa fresco if using, fresh coriander to garnish and a squeeze of lime juice.

  7. Fold in half like a taco to eat and enjoy.
