    Egg and Black Bean Burrito

    Source of Recipe

    From "The Big Book of Breakfast" by Maryana Vollstedt

    Recipe Introduction

    "Wrap up some of your favorite ingredients in a tortilla for a Mexican-style breakfast that is filling and satisfying. Serve with salsa."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
    ◦ 6 large eggs
    ◦ 2 tablespoons water
    ◦ teaspoon salt
    ◦ Freshly ground pepper
    ◦ 1 tablespoon butter
    ◦ 4 large flour tortillas, warmed
    ◦ 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
    ◦ cup sliced green onions, including some tender green tops
    ◦ Fresh salsa
    ◦ cup sour cream


    Place beans in a small saucepan over medium heat to warm, stirring occasionally.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, water, salt, and pepper to taste. In a medium nonstick skillet, melt butter. When butter foams, add egg mixture all at once. Let set for 20 seconds. Cook, stirring until eggs are light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

    To assemble, lay a tortilla on a plate and spoon some beans, eggs, cheese, a few green onions, 2 tablespoons of fresh salsa, and a dollop of sour cream in the center of each tortilla. Roll, folding in the ends. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve with remaining beans on the side.
