To make this an easy one-dish meal, we cooked the bell pepper and beans in the skillet
before scrambling the eggs. then folded them into the eggs
with the cheese and cilantro.
You can substitute whole milk
for the half-and-half in this recipe, but the eggs will be less
nich and less tender.
Serve with hot sauce or salsa, sour cream,
and sliced avocado.

and chopped into 1/4-inch pleces
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed
