Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 18x13-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, salt, and pepper. Saute until vegetables begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Place eggs, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and paprika into the bowl of a food processor. Process on high until jalapeno has been finely chopped. Add tomatoes and process until finely chopped. Add onion-bell pepper mixture and salsa and pulse to combine. Pour egg mixture into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature in the refrigerator, about 20 minutes.

  • Keep oven on; line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray paper with cooking spray.

  • Slice chilled eggs into 20 equal-sized rectangles. Sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese in the center of each tortilla. Top each with 1 egg rectangle. Sprinkle egg with 1 1/2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese. Top with 1 1/2 tablespoons each of rice and black beans. Top rice and beans with another egg rectangle; fold tortilla into a burrito.

  • Place burritos seam-side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Spray tops lightly with cooking spray.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes. Flip burritos over and bake for an additional 12 minutes. Let cool completely on a cooling rack before wrapping in foil or freezer paper and freezing in a freezer bag.
