  • red onion 1 small, halved and thinly sliced
  • red wine vinegar 5 tbsp
  • caster sugar 2 tsp
  • olive oil 3 tbsp
  • spring onions 4, chopped
  • garlic 1 clove, crushed
  • dried red chilli flakes a pinch
  • black beans 400g tin, drained and rinsed
  • mini cooking chorizos 12, cut into chunky slices
  • butter a knob
  • eggs 4, beaten with a splash of milk and seasoning
  • small corn tortillas 6, griddled or scorched
  • avocado 1, diced and tossed with lime juice
  • red chilli 1, finely chopped


  • Step 1

    Put the red onion in a bowl and toss with the vinegar and sugar. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes, stirring every now and then until pink and softened.

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a small pan and cook the spring onions, garlic and chilli flakes until softened. Add the beans and stir. Put aside (you’ll warm these up again before serving).

  • Step 3

    Heat another 2 tbsp olive oil and add the chorizo. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes until the oil is red and the chorizo crisps up a little. Keep warm.

  • Step 4

    Melt the butter in a small pan then add the beaten eggs and stir until scrambled.

  • Step 5

    To assemble, reheat the beans, then divide between the tortillas. Divide the eggs between them, then spoon over the chorizo and some of the oil. Top with the avocado, red chilli and drained pickled onions.
