Salt to taste

Blend well, set aside

Roast 3 pasilla peppers, or peppers of your choice, slightly burn them and place in blender

Add 2 bunches cilantro

1 tbsp. garlic

1 cup tomato juice

A dash of chili powder

2 toasted and chopped corn tortillas

Toast 2-3 corn tortillas or 1 flour tortilla in a non-stick skillet. Place in a bowl. Add black beans (store bought and heated) on top of the tortillas.

Cook your eggs in your favorite way and place on top of the beans. Add 2 oz. of each of your sauces on top of the eggs. Add a large tablespoon of feta and a dollop of sour cream (optional), garnish with sliced scallions and enjoy!
