Having a tostado  for breakfast is one of my favorites.  I prefer it over the usual breakfast burrito. Maybe I just  like having things that go crunch.

And this is easy enough to  prepare since eggs cook very  fast and the beans heat quickly in a microwave. The tostada shells can be warmed in a toaster oven or it can even be done on a griddle.
