I use 8 whole eggs and skip the salt. I enjoy it with fresh salsa from the grocery store. The black beans drop to the bottom of the dish when cooked, forming sort of a crust.

  1. This looks like a great meal for dinner or Sunday brunch. I’m glad you gave a variation — happy not to waste the egg yolks or be forced to buy a carton of egg whites.

    • That’s a good questions. I use 8 whole eggs for this recipe instead of 5 whole + 5 whites. I make it often enough and it uses so many eggs that I wouldn’t want to waste the eggs.

  3. Sounds great although I am not sure about the black beans. Do you buy them in a tin. Are there any alternatives you’d suggest? Going to pin it and you never know!

    • Yes, the black beans come in a can. I don’t know what else could be used as a substitute. Thanks for stopping by! Thanks for pinning it! I have to check into Pinterest.

  4. We eat quite. Bit of the black beans in Casseroles or just over rice. This is a new way I can use them. Always looking for a meatless meal to fit in our weekly menu.

  5. I love anything with black beans and cilantro! I would think you could substitute canned pinto beans for the black beans. This is a good gluten-free recipe to try. I will pin it!
