Description

Make-ahead breakfast burritos with seasoned black beans, eggs and cheese.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 slices uncured bacon, chopped (optional)
  • 1 medium bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 12 large eggs, beaten
  • 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 8 8-inch whole wheat tortillas, warmed
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Guacamole and salsa, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet to medium heat. Add the bacon (if using) and cook, stirring frequently, 8-10 minutes or until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard bacon fat.
  2. Coat the skillet with cooking spray. Add the bell pepper and sauté 2-3 minutes or until slightly soft. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in the beaten eggs. Use a spatula to scramble the eggs until just set. Fold in the black beans, chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper and smoked paprika until combined. Remove from the heat.
  3. Line tortillas on a cutting board. Divide the egg mixture in the center of each tortilla. Top each with shredded cheddar. For each, roll the sides of the tortilla over the egg mixture, then fold the wide edge over, tuck and roll into a burrito.
  4. Wrap each in paper towel (if planning to reheat in the microwave) or aluminum foil (if planning to reheat in the oven) and store in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag. Refrigerate up to 5 days or freezer up to 2 months.
  5. To reheat in the microwave if refrigerated, place the burrito wrapped in paper towel in the microwave and cook on high 30-60 seconds or until heated through. To reheat in the microwave if frozen, place the burrito wrapped in paper towel in the microwave and cook on high 90-120 seconds or until heated through. To reheat in the oven if refrigerated, place the burrito wrapped in aluminum foil in a 350-degree oven for 8-12 minutes or until heated through. To reheat in the oven if frozen, place the burrito wrapped in aluminum foil in a 350-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
  6. Serve with guacamole and salsa, if desired.

Notes

Cooking Tip: Microwave and oven temps range, so keep an eye on burritos the first time you reheat them.

Make it a Meal: Serve with a side of fruit.
