  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced (I used green and yellow but red would be even better!)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne chilli pepper
  • 120 g cooked black beans (~ 3/4 cup, or 1/2 a drained 400g tin)
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 100 g cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1 cup when grated)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • To serve, your choice of: shredded lettuce, corn, diced tomato, avocado, guacamole, crumbled tortilla chips, sour cream, jalapeños, etc.


  • Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan, and add the sliced peppers and onion. Cook over a medium-low heat until soft and sweet - at least 5 minutes. Add the spices and black beans, and cook for a few more minutes. Arrange the veggies so they're consistently distributed across the pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, grated cheese, and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the vegetables in the pan. Cook over a medium-low heat for a few minutes. Then place the pan under a grill (broiler) on a medium heat for another few minutes. Alternate between the hob and grill a couple more times until the frittata is cooked all the way through.
  • Serve with your choice of taco-style toppings - I used shredded lettuce, diced tomato, corn, and crumbled tortilla chips.


For an even easier dish, you can replace the individual spices with a tablespoon or two of your favourite taco spice mix.
