  1. Arrange top rack of the oven so it’s 6” / 15 cm from the broiler. Turn on broiler (use the low setting if available).
  2. Place tortillas in a single layer on a sheet pan (you might have to separate into 2 batches). Brush both sides of tortillas with some oil. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until they crisp up. Transfer tortillas onto plates (2 / serving).
  3. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for huevos). Crack eggs into heated oil (you may have to work in batches) and cook until the whites are set. If you like your eggs less runny, cover the pan with a lid and cook until eggs are at the consistency you want.
  4. Transfer eggs to tortillas. Repeat until all eggs are cooked.
  5. Empty refried beans into a microwave-safe container. Heat according to instructions on can.
  6. Toss slaw and season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Top tortillas and eggs with salsa and avocados. Serve sour cream, beans, and slaw on the side.
