The best Mexican breakfast is filled with delicious spiced and flavorful, but Mexican food doesn't have to contain chillies - so you can adapt the ingredients to suit your taste. More on that in a bit.

Crack the egg into the frying pan and cook to your liking. Meanwhile, put the beans back on the heat stirring occasionally so they are not cold.

Recipe Top Tips!

To make this less spicy and if making for kids:

  • If you wish you can replace the hot chilli sauce with tomato ketchup - not traditional at all but you can do this!
  • Replace the chillies with very thinly sliced red bell pepper.
  • Use refried beans instead of black beans - if you do, you will not want to add salt.
  • Replace the feta with any cheese of your choice.
