2011, Recipe 4: Black Bean Breakfast Burrito

Recipe courtesy of Good Life Eats
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 – 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • salsa, your choice of heat
  • 6 soft taco sized flour tortillas, warmed
Combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Hand beat the eggs using a whisk or fork until yolk and white are evenly mixed and the eggs are frothy, about 1-2 minutes.
Grease a nonstick saute pan and set it over medium-high heat. Add eggs to the pan. After the eggs begin to set, gently move them around in the pan with a spatula or wooded spoon. Move the eggs to the center while tilting your pan to redistribute the unset parts.
Break apart large pieces with your spoon or spatula. Turn the eggs as needed until the are cooked through. Stir in the chopped cilantro.
To assemble the burrito: divide the egg and black bean evenly among the tortillas. Garnish each burrito with feta, avocado, and salsa. Top with additional cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.

Results: I used my leftover black beans for this. YUMMY if you add some lime.  It definitely needs the acid.  I enjoyed it and so did Rashan!  I've made something similar before but usually with my eggs over medium.  I think I prefer them over medium.

As I said on FB....YUMMERS!! I am absolutely making this. I don't care if husband thinks cilantro smells like underarms and he doesn't like avacado. So. What.

LOLOL! What is WRONG with that man!?!? Who doesn't like cilantro or avocado. Sounds like grounds for a divorce to me... IJS. As much as I love Mexican food, cilantro and avocado are food groups to me! I hope you love it! Let me know!
