Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
6 large eggs
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
6 6″ flour tortillas, warmed                                     Sliced limes and cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Toss the cubed potatoes with the green chilies, chili powder, cayenne, and a little salt and pepper.  Mix  until the potatoes are evenly coated.  Transfer onto a medium sized sheet pan and place in the preheated oven for about 25 min or until the potatoes are soft and crispy.
  2. Meanwhile,  put the black beans into a blender with a little salt and pepper, juice of 1/2 a lime, and a little cilantro (optional). Blend until smooth and set aside.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high. Add 1 Tbsp. oil and reserved chorizo. Cook, breaking chorizo into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned and cooked through, 4–6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat tortillas in a dry medium skillet over medium until hot and lightly toasted (or wrap them in damp paper towels and heat in a microwave for about 20 seconds). Wrap in damp paper towels and keep warm between 2 plates.
  5. Heat skillet over medium and add 1 Tbsp. of butter. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until barely set, about 2 minutes. Return sausage to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until reheated, about 2 minutes.
  6. Place tortillas each on plates, spread the bean mixture evenly among the tortillas, and divide egg mixture among tortillas. Top with cheese, jalapeño, radish, avocado, and cilantro. Enjoy!
