Breakfast Burritos

This simple & delicious egg, bean, and cheese breakfast burrito recipe is one of my “go-to’s” for days on the run.  I love the combo of the ingredients, both in texture and in taste.  I make 12 burritos at a time, keep a couple fresh, and individually wrap and freeze the rest for later.  You can warm up from frozen at a power level 7 for ~ 1 1/2 minutes in your microwave.  If I have time, I will peel and fine dice a large potato (for 12 burritos), boil until al dente and throw that in the mix as well.

  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter or olive oil
  • 1 (15oz) can of black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups of salsa, reduced on stovetop
  • 12 flour tortillas


  • Add salt, pepper, and water to eggs and whisk it up!  Add butter to a large pan until melted.  Add eggs and gently fold over each other until large curds form and eggs are done to your liking.  Throw cooked eggs in a large bowl.  Add drained beans and shredded cheese.
  • Wipe out pan and add salsa to pan.  Cook on a low simmer , stirring occasionally, until salsa liquid is reduced (do this so it amps up the flavor and makes the burrito less soggy at the same time).  Should take ~ 5-8 minutes.  Throw that in with the egg mixture and stir all together.
  • Wipe out pan and bring to medium heat.  Place one tortilla at a time in pan for ~ 20 seconds per side or until tortilla is warm and pliable.  You don’t want it toast or browned.
  • Place a large spoonful in each tortilla, more towards the side facing you but leaving room at the edges.  Bring edges in and tuck the burrito into itself and roll.  Good luck – burrito wrapping will become easier and easier!
  • Wrap ’em up in aluminum foil if you want to freeze.  Serve with extra salsa, sour cream, avocado, or arugula if you like.  Happy Eating!  Beckie


  • Have leftover filling?  Lucky you, eat it up 🙂
  • Having trouble wrapping the burrito?  You can eat it like a soft shell taco, but just keep working at it.  Start with less filling and increase the filling amount as you get better.
  • When you get good at wrapping the burrito, you can have the next tortilla going while you finish wrapping – kinda “assembly line style”.
