looks gross, tastes great

Welcome to my favorite dinner. Only dirties one dish, takes 30 minutes to prepare and costs a grand total of about $1.00

Beans and Eggs for Two

-Mince a small yellow onion and sautee in oil over medium high heat (think translucent)
-While the onion cooks, add cumin, coriander, ginger and cayenne to the pan, to release the flavors.
-Mince some garlic and add it a bit later, careful not to let it burn
-cook down for about 5-10 minutes, and add can of beans. Any beans will do, but black beans are our favorite
-keep heat medium high, and add 1/2 can of liquid (I've used beer, stock, water, wine--be creative)
-cook down, occasionally stirring, for 20 minutes. Add liquid as needed, but this can get quite dry and still be good.
-crack two eggs onto the beans and cover with a lid until eggs are set
-let cool for a minute, heat up tortillas and eat it right out of the pan, using the tortillas as your utensils.

This is good with hot sauce and beer.

The farts must be truly world class...
P.S. Sounds good! I'd eat that stuff in a heartbeat...or a fartbeat...

I never know who is posting - tavo or lini.

I agree that dish is truly GAStronomical....

but I would need two more eggs if it were for me and another....

Chocolate--me too!

Buffalo--haha, I eat a ridiculous amount of beans--let's just say your body gets used to it. Those first couple months though...whew!

Doggy--I think we're going to start signing off on them. Lini wrote this one. I have cracked another couple eggs in on a particularly hungry day :)
