This particular dish is very good, but if you don’t like the idea of beef jerky strips with eggs it will not convince you. However, if you’re the type of person who is ready to try something different, this is it. Just taco your way in with hot tortillas and freshly made salsa.
Fun Fact: Beans are to Mexico as rice is to China. Our country produces 70 of the 150 varieties of beans in the world. But only six varieties are the most popular on our tables, and those are the pinto beans, azufrados (also known as peruanos), black beans, flor de mayo, flor de junio, and bayo.
