These zesty Southwestern egg burritos are always a hit whether you serve them for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a casual dinner. The homemade black bean salsa adds a special touch, but these are extra-quick if you use your favorite jarred salsa.


  • Four 9-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • One 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar or pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 cups Black Bean & Tomato Salsa (see recipe)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • Two Easy Ways to Heat Tortillas:

  • Microwave: Stack 4 tortillas between damp paper towels and microwave on high for 30 seconds, or until hot and pliable.

  • Oven: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Stack tortillas (about 4 in a batch) and wrap

Companion recipe: Black Bean & Tomato Salsa


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap the tortillas in foil and heat in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Blend the eggs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl with a fork until blended. Heat the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the chilies and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the eggs and cook, stirring slowly with a wooden spoon or heatproof rubber spatula, until soft, fluffy curds form, 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 minutes.

To serve, divide the eggs evenly among the tortillas. Sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons cheese and roll up. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
