When living in Texas, it is impossible not to be seduced by Mexican and Tex-Mex food. When we go out to eat, we often end up in a Mexican restaurant.
And this Tortas, the Mexican word for sandwich, is a favorite because Chileans love sandwiches, we don’t eat tortillas, and bread is king and present on all meals and in many snacks. This Tortas are accessible and have a wonderful flavor. They are trendy in Mexico and here in Texas as a quick breakfast on the go and are offered at food trucks and taco stands everywhere in Houston.
My grandfather was an absolute fan of eggs with sausage for breakfast. I like to think he would love the addition of the beans.

I love this recipe. I did something different with the beans. I heated them separately and stirred them into the meat and eggs. I used black refried beans, it wasn’t pretty, but it sure tasted good. Thank you
The flavor is more important than looks. At least for me, sounds delicious.
