Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). Grease a 9x13 inch (22x33 cm) baking dish.

Layer 8 tortillas on the bottom of the baking dish and spread one cup of salsa on top.

Sprinkle half the black beans evenly overtop the salsa layer and 1/3 of the cheese.

Repeat a second layer using 8 tortillas, 1 cup of salsa, remaining beans and 1/3 of the cheese.

Repeat a third layer using 8 tortillas, 1 cup of salsa and remaining cheese.

Using the back of a wooden spoon, create 6 shallow wells and crack one egg into each well.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until eggs are cooked through. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Top with cilantro, green onions, and avocado and serve.
