This recipe comes from the State of Veracruz, and is known as “Huevos Tirados,” which roughly translates to “dropped eggs” or “thrown eggs.”
Serve them with a side of fried plantains and freshly made corn tortillas, accompanied by a salsa. All this will make a heavenly breakfast you won’t forget.
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup refried black beans
- ½ tablespoon vegetable oil
- Salt to taste
- Crack the eggs and slightly beat in a small bowl. Season with salt and set aside.
- Warm the refried beans in a medium-size skillet. If the refried beans are too pasty, add a little bit of water or bean broth to soften them.
- Now, in another non-stick frying pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat, and pour the eggs. Once they start cooking, add the beans, and mix until they are completely mixed and the eggs are cooked to your liking. Slide the eggs as is, forming an omelet to be served on the plate.
It’s the custom in the State of Veracruz to serve this dish with a side of fried plantains and pickled jalapeño peppers. I also like to add small pieces of cooked chorizo with a warm French roll. If you ever visit the beautiful State of Veracruz, you will find this meal served for breakfast in most restaurants.
