I made this for myself, so didn't want to bother heating the oven. I sprayed a small skillet with Pam and browned the tortilla on both sides. While the tortilla browned, I prepared the cumin, beans and chipotle in another pan. I covered the beans to allow them to heat through. Once the tortilla was brown, I removed it from the skillet, applied more Pam and fried the egg. Once the egg was done, I layered everything on the tortilla per the instructions, slipped the whole thing back in the skillet, covered, and heated until the cheese melted, just a minute or two. Came out wonderful! Even though it used two pans, it was worth it. Be sure not to overcook the egg; the runny yolk really adds to the experience.
