    3. Preheat an oven to 350°F.
    4. For the potato bean mixture: Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook for 3-4 minutes until soft and just starting to color; and potatoes, and remaining salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and place in a large bowl. Add the cooked black beans and red peppers stir to combine.
    5. For the muffin tins: Spoon about 2 T. of the bean mixture into each muffin cup, then top with 1 T. of the ricotta , and sprinkle each with the remaining pecorino cheese. Stir the egg mixture again and pour into each muffin cup ⅔ of the way up the sides.
    6. Place the muffin pan in the preheated oven and cook for 10 minutes, or until the center is set. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Run a rubber spatula around the edges of each cup and remove from the muffin pan.
