Chorizo and Black Bean Breakfast Burritos - adapted from Elly Says Opa (link above)
red, green, or yellow peppers, chopped
3/4 lb. chorizo (casings removed & crumbled if you are using links)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup salsa
2 whole eggs
6 egg whites
a couple splashes of milk or cream
salt and pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
10-14 flour tortillas (whole wheat please!)
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, and add the chorizo. Once browned, add the black beans, peppers, salsa and a little salt and pepper to taste, if necessary. Reduce heat and simmer until everything is heated through. Set aside on a plate.
Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, and salt and pepper in a bowl . Scramble the eggs in a pan (make sure you don’t overcook them...MOM!). Mix the scrambled eggs into the chorizo and black bean mixture.
Heat the tortillas until soft (wrap them in a slightly damp tea towel and microwave for about 20 seconds.) Place a couple spoonfuls of the mixture onto the tortillas and top with sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll up, burrito style. You can eat them as is, or bake them, or place them in the microwave to melt the cheese.
For the next day, I take the tortilla, add the mixture and cheese on top, and warm in microwave for 45-60 seconds until it is hot! So easy and So yummy, it was a great way to start the week!
