Start the week off right with this simple and delicious Tex-Mex Avocado Toast! Crunchy toast topped with mashed avocado and all of the classic taco fixings!
Serves: 6 toasts
  • 6 large slices sourdough or French bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium avocados
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 6 large eggs, poached or fried
  • ½ cup store-bought salsa
  • ¼ cup crumbled Cotija cheese, or feta
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapeƱos, drained
  • fresh cilantro, for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange the bread slices in on a single layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. You can also pop them under the broiler for a few seconds on both sides.
  2. In a large bowl, mash together the avocado, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin, and chili flakes until somewhat smooth. A few chunks is okay.
  3. To assemble the toasts, spread the mashed avocado evenly among the toasted bread slices. Top each with a poached or fried egg, and then top with salsa, cotija cheese, jalapeƱos, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
