Guacamole Tostadas with Fried Eggs

Don’t overlook eggs for dinner! This recipe comes together quickly with ingredients that are already in your pantry. It also satisfies my craving for fresh guacamole and healthy Mexican food.


  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

For the Lettuce:

  • 1/2 head butter lettuce, torn in small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley*

For the guacamole:

  • 2 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 1/4 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice*
  • kosher salt and black pepper

For the eggs:

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 15oz cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed*
  • 1 cup shredded raw-milk cheddar cheese*
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and finely chopped (optional)*


For the tortillas:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Brush the tortillas with olive oil on both sides. Arrange in a large baking sheet and bake, turning once, for about 6 minutes, or until slightly browned. Set aside.

For the lettuce:

  1. In a small bowl, toss the lettuce with the lime juice, salt and parsley. Set aside.

For the guacamole:

  1. Mash the avocados in a small bowl. Mix in the onion, garlic, and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

For the eggs:

  1. Heat the oil in a 10-12 inch skillet and fry the eggs to the desired doneness; I recommend over easy. Season the eggs.


  1. To assemble tostadas, layer the guacamole, kidney beans, and lettuce mixture on the tortillas, then top with the eggs, cheese and red peppers (optional).


*I used finely chopped romaine lettuce since I decided to make this dinner at the last minute. It worked well. I omitted the cheddar cheese and red bell peppers and sprinkled some red pepper flakes instead. Since I didn’t have flat leaf parsley, I used cilantro. I also added additional finely chopped cilantro to my guacamole and on top. I only had one can of kidney beans in the pantry and I was still satisfied. Yum, delish, amazeballs.
