Corn tortillas loaded with crispy roasted potatoes, scrambled "huevos", black beans, and onion. It is smothered in fresh, homemade enchilada sauce and topped with avocado.  This is a perfect weekend breakfast or brunch.  It's also naturally gluten free!

Note:  I use Whole Foods brand organic corn tortillas or Food For Life brand sprouted organic corn tortillas.  They are both organic, non GMO and have minimal ingredients and no preservatives.  If you've ever read labels on a package of corn tortillas, they are usually packed with preservatives and unfamilair ingredients.
