Knife & Fork Breakfast Burrito

4 servings


  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup bottled chunky salsa
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray or cooking oil
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese or shredded Monterey Jack cheese (2-ounces)
  • 1/4 cup dairy sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons snipped fresh mint
  • Bottled chunky salsa (optional)

Preparation: In a small saucepan mash the beans slightly. Stir in the 1/3 cup salsa. Heat through over low heat. Cover and keep warm while making egg “tortillas”.

In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, pepper and salt. Coat a 10-inch nonstick omelet pan (or skilled with flared sides) with nonstick cooking spray, or brush lightly with a little cooking oil. Preheat pan over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles.

For each of the egg “tortillas” pour about 1/4 cup of the egg moisture into the pan. Lift and tilt pan to spread egg mixture over bottom. Return to heat. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom (do not turn).

Loosen edges of the egg “tortilla” with spatula; carefully slide out onto a serving plate, browned side down. On one half of the “tortilla” spread one-fourth of the bean-salsa mixture. Top with tomato and cheese. Fold in half and then into quarters to form the burritos. Keep warm while preparing remaining tortillas and burritos. Top with a dollop of sour cream and the remaining cheese; sprinkle with mint. Serve with additional salsa, if desired.
