Scrambled Egg and Avocado Tostadas Recipe

I'm on a HUGE breakfast kick lately!! Of course, I've been eating it for dinner and not breakfast, but it's still so, so good either way! My daughter and I have been super busy lately, and unfortunately the blog gets somewhat neglected when life gets crazy. I did skip a post last week, so hopefully this one makes up for it!

These breakfast tostadas are AMAZING! They are so quick to make and you could add so many different ingredients to change up the flavor. I will be adding black beans the next time I make them. I always have at least one can of black beans in the pantry, but when I went to grab one to make this, I realized I was all out. Don't ya just hate when you forget to add something to your shopping list when you use the last of it up?? Yeah, me too! Have fun with this recipe and enjoy!!

1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon oregano

1 ripe avocado, cut into 8 slices and sprinkled with lemon or lime juice
