Method

  1. Put the sweet potato and half the lime wedges in a microwaveable bowl. Cover with cling film and cook on high for 7 mins until soft.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over a medium heat in a large frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 mins. Stir in the coriander stalks and spices, cook for 1 min more, then tip in the black beans and add some seasoning. Gently stir in the sweet potato (you want some chunky pieces), then make four wells in the mixture. Crack in the eggs, then cover and cook for about 8 mins until the whites are set and yolks runny.

  3. Top with the avocado and coriander leaves, and serve with the remaining lime wedges. Crush over some tortilla chips and drizzle with hot sauce, if you like.

I followed the recipe exactly, leaving skin on sweet potato, timing for eggs etc. Potatoes took longer...maybe my chunks were too big. Carefully time your eggs! One minute they were underdone....the next minute, the yolks had firmed up! We enjoyed the flavours and textures. Added some sweet chilli sauce while eating. It needed more moisture....was too dry. Maybe if the eggs yolks were runny that might have helped. We like sauce/gravy on/with our food....any ideas what could be added to this dish?

You could add some soured cream on top! Or salsa
