Breakfast Tortas

This post is sponsored by the American Egg Board.

One of my favorite things to do in Mexico is grab a torta for breakfast. They’re quick, super affordable and easy to eat while you’re walking around el tianguis. At under $.20 each, eggs are also one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein so they are a staple in my fridge along with chorizo for when I want an easy and filling breakfast! Did you know one large egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories? In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I teamed up with the American Egg Board to create this easy breakfast I grew up with!

  • Chorizo and beans together!! YUM! My husband would LOVE this. I am lazy and don’t often make refried beans… and honestly i rarely purchase them either. Is there a store bought brand that you would recommend? I’d love love love to surprise the hubs with these some weekend! He would flip!
