    8 slices bacon (optional)

    8 eggs

    1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink Himalayan salt

    1/8 teaspoon Simply Organic Black Pepper

    1 dash Worcestershire sauce

    1 teaspoon olive oil


    1 tablespoon olive oil

    3 cloves garlic, minced

    2 cans (15 ounces each) organic black beans, drained and rinsed

    1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Chipotle Powder

    1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Cumin

    1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Paprika

    1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic All-Season Salt

    1 can (about 2 cups) low-sodium chicken broth


    8 tortillas

    1 cup fresh baby spinach, sautéed

    1 cup crumbled queso fresco or shredded Mexican-blend cheese

    1 cup salsa



To Make the Bacon and Eggs:

      1. If using bacon, preheat oven to 380 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. On baking sheet, evenly spread bacon. Bake for about 15 minutes, then drain grease and pat bacon with a paper towel.
      2. In a bowl, combine eggs, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until well blended.
      3. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, heat olive oil. Add egg mixture and scramble for about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil.

To Make the Refried Black Beans:

      1. In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes.
      2. Add beans, chipotle powder, cumin, paprika and salt. Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes.
      3. Add broth and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender and puree until smooth.
      4. Return mixture to saucepan and cook, stirring, for about 2 more minutes.

To Assemble:

    1. Warm tortillas individually, then divide bacon (if using), eggs, beans, spinach, cheese and salsa evenly among them. Alternatively, arrange all ingredients taco-bar style and let people make their own tacos!
