Wash produce before use


Pickle the onion and radish

Heat the oven to 400°F.

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup]. Coarsely chop enough additional onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup]; set aside for the squash and black beans.
  • Peel the watermelon radish; cut the radish lengthwise into quarters, then thinly slice crosswise.
  • Juice half the lime; cut the remaining half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut the remaining lime into wedges.]

In a medium bowl, combine the sliced onion, radish, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Crisp the tortillas

  • Brush the tortillas lightly on both sides with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt.

Arrange the tortillas side by side directly on the oven rack. Toast, using tongs to turn them once halfway through, until crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the tortillas to a plate. Meanwhile, prepare the eggs.


Cook the eggs

Bring a small saucepot of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes for soft-cooked (for firmer yolks, cook 1 to 3 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. While the eggs are cooking and cooling, prepare the squash and black beans.


Prep and cook the squash and black beans

  • Cut the squash into ½-inch pieces.
  • Rinse the black beans.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chopped onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the squash and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Stir in the black bean spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the squash and beans are cooking, prepare the remaining garnishes.


Prep the remaining garnishes

  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Transfer the tortillas to individual plates. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled onion and radish from the brine. Top the tortillas with the squash, beans, onion, radish, and eggs. Crumble the queso fresco on top, garnish with the cilantro, and serve with the lime wedges.
