Breakfast Burrito

Servings: 4

Preparation time: 40 min

 

Ingredients

2 teaspoons canola oil

1/2 small red onion, diced (1 cup)

1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 cup drained, rinsed canned black beans, preferably low-sodium

1/4 teaspoon chili flakes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 eggs and 4 egg whites

1/3 cup (about 1 1/2-ounce) shredded pepper Jack cheese

Cooking spray

4 (10-inch) whole-wheat tortillas (burrito-size)

1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

1/4 cup salsa

1 large tomato, (4 ounces) seeded and diced

1 small avocado (4 ounces), cubed

Hot sauce

Directions

 

1.Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. Cook the onions and peppers until onions are softened and peppers are slightly charred, about 8 minutes. Add black beans andred pepper flakes and cook until warmed through, another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish.

2.Whisk together the eggs and egg whites then stir in the cheese. Spray the skillet with cooking spray, and reheat the skillet over a medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add eggs, scrambling until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon each sour cream and salsa, then layer with 1/4 of the black bean mixture, 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato and 1/4 of the avocado. Season, to taste, with hot sauce. Roll up burrito-style and serve.
