A soft taco topped with a fried egg is perfect as the first thing you eat in the morning or the last thing you eat at night, even when those lines blur a bit. These have refried beans, melted cheddar, and creamy Greek yogurt to boot.

This recipe was featured as part of our 7 Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos.

  • Yields: 6 tacos
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 20 mins
  • Active: 15 mins

Ingredients (8)

  • Vegetable oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans, black or pinto
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Hot sauce, for serving


  1. Set a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, add a bit of oil to the center, and break in 1 egg. Season with a little salt and fry until the white is set. Remove to a warm platter and repeat with the remaining 5 eggs.
  2. Meanwhile, grab a medium nonstick skillet, set it over medium-low heat, and add a bit of oil and the beans. Stir until hot, then add the grated cheese and let it melt.
  3. Meanwhile, heat your tortillas (we do it directly over a gas flame till they’re puffed and a little blistered).
  4. Place an egg on top of each tortilla, spoon on the beans and melted cheese, and top each taco with a spoonful of yogurt. Serve immediately, allowing guests to sprinkle with hot sauce.
