Mexican Breakfast Burritos


This is my all-time favourite recipe for a family breakfast. The fibre in the beans keeps us all full, and the combination is out of this world. For a gluten-free burrito, use corn tortillas.

Breakfast Mexican Burrito Recipe


1 (425g) can black beans, drained
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Cooking spray
6 large eggs, lightly beaten
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup salsa
1⁄2 cup crumbled Cotija cheese or substitute with cheddar


  1. Place beans and lime juice in a small bowl; mash with the back of a spoon until almost smooth.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add eggs to pan. Cook, without stirring, until mixture sets on bottom. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form curds. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until egg is thickened but still moist. Remove from pan immediately.
  3. Heat skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 1 tortilla to pan. Heat 20 seconds on each side or just until soft. Remove from pan, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas.
  4. Spoon 2 tablespoons bean mixture, 2 1⁄2 tablespoons egg, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 1 tablespoon cheese down centre of each tortilla. Roll up. Re-coat skillet with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining burritos, and cook over medium heat 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally.
