Preheat oven to 400F

1. Cut up tortillas into triangle shapes and deep fry at 350 degrees until chips are golden. About 1 minute. Allow oil to drain from chips. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chips.

2. Prepare Pico De Gallo by adding diced tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss. Set aside.

3. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over a medium heat. Sauté Fresh corn until caramelized, about 2 minutes add black beans and continue cooking for 1 minute. Add Salsa.

4. Add the fried tortilla chips to the pan and stir in as much as you can until the tortilla chips are partially coated in salsa and beans. Top with Cheddar Cheese.

5. Make a shallow well in the middle of the pan and crack in the egg. Place in oven and cook for about 5 minutes until the egg is set. Season the whole pan with salt and pepper and

drizzle with the remainder of the salsa. Serve with sliced avocado and a fresh lime wedge on the side. Top with sour cream, Pico De Gallo, queso Fresca and scallions.
