Mexican Breakfast Burritos

For our Meatless Monday meal tonight, we had mexican breakfast burritos from Jersey Girl Cooks. These were so great! Very easy, quick, and so tasty! A definite keeper! Kevin and I both really liked them. Carson was about to go to bed, so he didn't get to try any. I totally forgot to take a picture in my haste to eat quickly and then put Carson to bed. Jersey Girl Cooks has a picture if you really want to see what they turn out looking like, though. I added a few things - some diced red bell pepper, some sliced avocado, and a little guacamole. Soooo yummy!!

Mexican Breakfast Burritos

1 TBS olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 jalapeno, cored and minced (I just used half a can of the mild diced green chiles)
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained (I used about 3/4 cup)
1/4 cup salsa (I used almost 1/2 cup)
1 cup egg beaters (or 4 eggs)
1/2 cup shredded low fat Mexican blend cheese (I only used about 1/4 cup)
2 whole wheat tortillas (8 inch)
light sour cream and salsa for serving (and avocado and guacamole)

In a large non stick frying pan, heat oil to medium heat. Add onions and jalapenos (and bell pepper). Cook for about 5 minutes or until onions turn golden. Add beans and salsa and heat until warm. Add egg beaters and cook until firm while stirring occasionally. Top with cheese and put lid on pan until cheese is melted. Heat tortillas in microwave for 10 to 15 seconds or until warm. Add egg mixture and roll up, making sure to tuck sides in. Serve with sour cream and salsa.

These sound good...and very flexible. A unique meatless meal. I'll have to keep it in my "to try" file.
