Mexican poached egg breakfast

This is probably my favorite breakfast to make. Ever.
Black beans,cilantro,salsa and eggs how could you go wrong!?
And its healthy,vegetarian and super tasty.


  1. 1Preheat oven to 300 C/ 148.88888888888889 F
  1. 1Ok for the Bean mixture combine: Beans, corn, cilantro, cumin, red wine vinegar, garlic, water, salt and pepper, and pulsated in a food processor, to keep some beans and corn pieces. But not pureed. You can obviously add more cilantro, Cumin, vinegar or garlic if you like. Then set aside in a microwavable dish.
  2. 2Now for the eggs. take a small pot, and pour about 2 inches of salsa in it. Bring to a boil while stirring frequently.
    Then 1 at a time crack each egg in a small dish and slip the egg into the salsa. Once the egg has started to cook a little spoon some salsa on each egg to get all the whites to cook. Cook eggs to your liking. Soft, hard whatever you want.
  1. 1While the eggs are cooking heat the beans in the microwave for about 20 seconds or until they are steamy and hot.
  2. 2Next place the Pitas in the oven, straight on the rack for about 2-3 min just enough to get them warm, soft and chewy!
  3. 3Finally! Take your bean mixture and spread it on each pita, then spoon 2 eggs with some salsa on each pita.

Top with cheese, lettuce, green onions and a dollop of sour cream!

Then put it in your mouth and love it!
