  • In a medium bowl, combine black beans and olive oil. Mash with a fork until the black beans are crushed and the mixture starts to stick together.
  • Add ground cumin, salt, pepper and cilantro. Stir to combine.
  • Split English muffins in half crosswise and toast until golden brown. Place two halves on each of four plates.
  • Divide the black bean mixture evenly between the English muffins and spread. Top with avocado slices.
  • Poach and drain eggs (see my post on How to: Poach an Egg), set one on top of each prepared English muffin and garnish plate with dollops of salsa.
  • Serve immediately.
