For the Breakfast Tacos

1. Prep the breakfast taco “bar” ingredients. For best results and easy clean-up, cook bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet in a 380 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

2. Crack eggs in a bowl and whisk with salt, pepper, paprika and dash of Worcestershire.

3.Heat oil in a large skillet over low-medium heat and cook the eggs, scrambling as you cook, about 3 minutes.

4. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil.

For the Refried Black Beans

1. Pour olive oil in a medium saucepan and heat to medium.

2. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add black beans, cumin, salt, and chipotle pepper and stir for about 2 minutes.

3. Add broth and simmer, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender (taking extra care to secure the lid with a dish towel) and puree until smooth.

4. Return to the saucepan and stir, about 2 more minutes. Pour into a bowl to self-serve.
