My Favorite Breakfast

I don't make this nearly fact, this should be our breakfast everyday.  It's healthy, jammed full of nutrition, and it's so good!  AND, it doesn't leave me hungry in an hour!
(this is for 2 adults)

Egg Ingredients:
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
cheddar cheese (freshly grated!), as little as you need

Bean Ingredients:
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
drizzle of olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp cumin

Tortilla Ingredients:
4 corn tortillas
1 Tbsp olive oil

1.  In small pot over low heat, stir together black beans, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and cumin.  Stir occasionally as the rest of the food is cooking.
2.  In saute pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft.  Add peppers and cook for another 2 minutes.
3.  Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.  Add cayenne.  Pour over onions and peppers, stirring constantly until eggs set and are cooked through.  Grate cheese over top and allow to sit for a minute to melt.
4.  On a flat skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Place tortillas on skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden.
5.  Serve beans on the tortillas, with eggs on the side.
