This breakfast sandwich filled with eggs, tomato, beans and cheese is a hearty way to start the day.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Place bread on a baking sheet, sliced side up. Toast in oven for 10 minutes or until bread begins to brown. Remove from oven; set aside and let cool.

Step 3

Beat eggs, evaporated milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Step 4

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Add onion, tomato and jalapeño; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Pour in egg mixture.

Step 5

Decrease heat to medium-low. Constantly fold egg mixture with a silicone spatula for about 5 minutes or until eggs are set.

Step 6

Spread beans evenly on top and bottom halves of each bread. Layer with about ½ cup egg mixture. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Garnish each torta with 1 teaspoon cheese.

Step 7

Top with top half of bread.


If telera bread is not available, use French bread or bolillos. Enjoy with your favorite salsa for additional flavor and spice.
