  4. Add the hot refried beans (see below) to the mixture. Top with the egg slices. Serve.

Lime Cilantro Dressing

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

Refried Beans

  1. Place a large skillet on medium heat and add the olive oil.
  2. Add the onion and lightly sauté for a few minutes until the onions are slightly translucent. Add the garlic, chili powder, and cumin, and sauté for another minute.
  3. Add the broth and the beans and cook for about 5 minutes. Lightly mash the beans mixture. Season with sea salt and pepper. Add the cilantro and stir.
  4. If not using right away, let cool. Put into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator


Tip: To make this easier to throw together for breakfast, make the refried beans and boil the egg the night before. The salad can also be made ahead, but leave out the avocado and add it in the morning.
