  • Heat the tortillas in a microwave or in the oven until soft. Lay the tortillas flat and spoon as many black beans onto each tortilla as you like. Follow with eggs, cheese and salsa. Roll the tortillas into burritos. Serve or let cool and freeze for reheating and eating another morning.

Not bad for a quick and easy breakfast! I cut way back on the servings because I only needed two of these. Instead of opening up a whole can of beans I just used some breakfast sausage instead and left some homemade salsa on the side for dipping. Read More

These were ok. They were easy to make but I did not like the flavor. I also used 8-inch tortillas instead of 10-inch and even the 8-inch weren't too stuffed--so I don't think this would make enough for 8 10-inch burritos. Read More

Very good and EASY. I substituted Northern White. Also I used flour tortillas because I didn't have corn ones. I think the corn tortillas would not be pliable enough. They always break when I roll them. Use flour tortillas if you have the same problem. I put the salsa on the side and also a dab of sour cream and topped it off with fresh cilantro. It was good. I can't want to use the do-ahead feature of this recipe. Read More

These were great - thanks for the recipe Frank!! Made some with salsa and some without and they were all great. Also I used a splash of hot sauce with my eggs and used black beans flavored with cumin and chili spices. Yum! Read More

I had to scale the servings down dramatically since this was meant to feed only one. I really enjoy beans in my breakfast burritos...I don't know if it's just me or if it's a southern thing. I didn't think the salsa added a whole lot of flavor so would opt for leaving that out next time around. Maybe some bacon or sausage would be a good addition as well. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Pretty good! I used black beans that were already spiced with chili and cumin. Yum! I left out the salsa because I don't like the wateriness merging with the eggs and I think it makes the tortilla soggy. We liked it though! Read More

I made these both ways but I personally like putting the salsa cheese and beans in the scrambled egg mixture with a small amount of diluted sour cream. I heat everything up in the same pan and they turn out great! Too be extra healthy I sometimes use only egg whites and low fat cheese on a whole wheat tortilla. Perfect match with a full bodied coffee! Read More

very good. I cooked garlic onions and hashbrowns with butter salt and pepper and scrambled my eggs into that for the burrito to add flavor and texture. Read More

I like this recipe although my husband likes meat with every meal. So instead of beans I cook about 3-4 slices of roll sausage sprinkled with a little taco seasoning; drain on paper towels and crumble. Then return to skillet and pour 3 eggs mixed a little milk on top. Cook until eggs are light and fluffy. Then spread in 3 small or 2 large tortillas with salsa or taco sauce and cheese. Got to admit it's sooo good. Read More
