Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the chilli and garlic and cook until softened and starting to colour. Break in the eggs on either side of the pan. Once they start to set, spoon the beans (with their juice) and the tomatoes around the pan and sprinkle over the cumin seeds. You’re aiming to warm the beans and tomatoes rather than cook them. 
     

  2. Remove the pan from the heat and scatter over the avocado and coriander. Squeeze over half of the lime wedges. Serve with the remaining wedges on the side for squeezing over.

This was tasty but the actual recipe is really backwards! I used 4 eggs rather than 2. I would recommed making it more like a shakshuka - fry the garlic, cumin seeds and chilli, then add the beans and tomatoes. When they are hot add the eggs to it until they are cooked through. If you do it the recipe way you end up having to stir stuff around in between eggs which is a nightmare. I will try again but ignoring the instructions in the recipe - maybe add some onion too!
