  • One 10-ounce can of diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained

  • One 10-ounce can of red enchilada sauce 

  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 

  • 2 tablespoons water 

  • One 16-ounce can of pinto beans, rinsed and drained

  • Cooking spray 

  • 4 large eggs 

  • Four 8-inch fat-free flour tortillas 

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled queso fresco (cheese)



  • In a medium saucepan, mix the tomatoes and enchilada sauce, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and allow the sauce to simmer until it begins to thicken (about 5 minutes). Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the cilantro and lime juice, stirring to mix well.

  • Into a microwave-safe bowl, add the water and beans. Using a fork, partially mash the beans to a coarse consistency. Cover the bowl with a paper towel, and microwave until hot (approximately 2 minutes on high setting).

  • Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Break the eggs into the skillet, break the yolks, and cook for 1 minute. Flip the eggs, and allow them to cook for an additional minute.

  • Warm the tortillas in a toaster oven or microwave. Coat one side of each tortilla with about 1/3 cup of mashed beans. Place one egg onto each tortilla, and top with sauce. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese over each tortilla, and serve immediately.
