EWWK: Chilaquiles Bean Breakfast


1 teaspoon organic canola oil
2 small corn tortillas, cut into triangles
2 tablespoons cojita cheese
1/4 cup enchilada sauce
1/3 cup pinto beans
½ cup leftover vegetables
Edible garnishes:

Lime slice
1 tablespoons pepitas
Hot sauce, optional


Pour the oil into a non-stick pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot add tortilla triangles and cook until brown. Then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese over the triangles, and flip over so the cheese side in touching the pan. Allow the cheese to crips up (about 1-2 minutes undisturbed in the pan). Take 2 triangles out for “garnish”.

Pour the enchilada sauce over the remaining tortilla triangles, and cook, stirring, until the tortillas soak up most of the sauce, about 1 minute. Add the beans and veggies to the pan and stir to heat.

Garnish with pepitas, cilantro, lime and the two reserved chilaquiles.

Eat immediately.
