Ingredients

  • 8 (six inch/15 cm) whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 4 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 sweet green pepper diced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 cups hot and spicy pasta sauce
  • 1 can black bean drained and rinsed
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander or parsley

Method

Press each tortilla into greased 1-1/4-cup (300 mL) tortilla mould or heatproof bowl, pleating tortilla to fit neatly. Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 400°F (200° C) oven until crisp, about 8 minutes. Let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, green pepper, chili powder, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add pasta sauce and beans; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour enough water into separate saucepan to come 3 inches (8 cm) up side of pan; bring to simmer. Break eggs, 1 at a time, into small dish; slip each egg into pan. Cook until desired doneness, 3 minutes for soft yolk, 5 minutes for firm yolk.

Meanwhile, spoon bean mixture into tortilla cups. With slotted spoon, remove each egg from water and blot spoon on paper towel; place in tortilla cup. Sprinkle with coriander.
