  1. For the sauce, heat the oil in a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the flour and stir over the heat for one minute.

  5. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wide pan set over a medium heat. Add the spring onion and cook for two minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for another 30 seconds. Add the black beans, stir well and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Place the tortilla chips in a large bowl with half of the sauce and toss to coat.
  7. Grease a large baking dish with oil and add the tortilla pieces in a single layer. Top with the black bean mixture and sprinkle over the cheese. Use the back of a spoon to make four hollows in the chips. Carefully crack an egg into each hollow and sprinkle with salt.
