Another way to prepare the tortillas (one traditionally used by people in Mexico when they make this dish) is to fry them very briefly in oil rather than bake them. To do this, fill a medium-sized skillet or saucepan with vegetable oil to a depth of about 1/2 inch and heat. Use tongs to place a tortilla into the oil, leaving it for just a few seconds, then flip it over to fry for a few seconds more. The idea is to fry the tortilla just enough that it is no longer flaccid and easily bendable, but not so much that it becomes hard and crisp. Remove tortilla from oil and let drain. Continue one by one, until all the tortillas have been briefly fried.

Spoon the sauce into 4 individual, shallow baking dishes and arrange the tortilla chips around the sides. Crack 2 eggs into each dish and sprinkle with the cheese. Set the dishes on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve right away.

In a small bowl, mix half the salsa with the black beans and season with salt and pepper. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the black bean mixture into each tortilla cup. Crack an egg into each of the eight cups. Bake until barely set, about 8 minutes. Top with cheese, cover with aluminum foil, and then bake for 6 to 7 minutes more. To serve, spoon the sour cream and remaining salsa on top of the eggs.


In the meantime, spread the bean mixture over each tortilla, followed by the salsa. Then top each with an egg. Dollop with a little more salsa, fresh cilantro sprigs and a good grind of black pepper.
