It's what's for breakfast or solo dinner

Call it following a desire to put healthy beans in my mouth while honoring an egg craving at the same time, or call it a lazy slightly uninspired cooking experiment. Personally, I thought it was tasty and I'm still totally convinced it was mostly healthy.

medium to small skillet, preheated
Olive oil
1 can rinsed black beans
chili powder and cumin to taste
2 cloves minced garlic
(possible additions for another time: 2 Tbsp each of diced red pepper and onion)
2 eggs stirred
2-3 Tbsp of favorite salsa (I used Emerald Valley)
1/4 c shredded cheese of choice (I used sharp cheddar)

Preheat skillet over medium high heat. Add just shy of a Tbsp of olive oil, add onion and red pepper. Saute for 1-3 minutes, until onions are translucent. Add drained black beans. Stir until heated through. Add garlic, salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin. Stir for 30 seconds to a minute to release flavors. Turn heat down to medium-medium low before adding eggs. Add eggs and salsa. Stir until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Let sit for a minute or two and serve.

This created a healthy portion for one. Would be plenty for two with the addition of toast and fruit.
