Tex Mex Breakfast Burrito


I’ve been getting pretty bored recently with the same old poached eggs or scrambled eggs with toast for breakfast.  After a quick look in the fridge I found a bit of salsa and some kidney beans left over from last night’s dinner.  And I thought to myself, how can kidney beans and salsa be incorporated into breakfast…?

By making my scrambled eggs tex-mex of course!  And what delicious eggs they turned out to be.  I did also add some spinach (mainly because at present I’m trying to get as much iron as possible into myself so that baby doesn’t steal it all) but you might want to add some chopped onion or chopped peppers instead.

Preparation time:  <5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

tex-mex-breakfast-wrap-recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 100ml milk (or more depending on how you like your eggs scrambled)
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • large handful spinach leaves (washed)
  • 150g red kidney beans (about 1/3 tin)
  • 2 flour tortilla wraps
  • 2 large spoonfuls salsa (1 for each wrap)
  • handful of grated cheddar cheese

Preparation method

  1. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a heavy based pan.
  2. Beat the eggs and milk together in a small bowl, and add salt & pepper for seasoning.
  3. When the butter is melted, add the egg/milk mix to the pan and stir intermittently.
  4. Before the eggs are completely cooked through, add the spinach leaves and stir into the egg mixture until wilted. Then add the kidney beans and stir until the eggs are cooked and the kidney beans are heated. Turn off the heat.
  5. Heat the tortilla wraps for 20 seconds in the microwave.
  6. To assemble the burrito set each out flat on a plate and add half the cheese in a line down the middle of each wrap. Spoon half the egg mixture onto each wrap and then top with the salsa. Fold in the ends (so that the filling won’t fall out), roll up and voila: it’s breakfast time!

Tip: If you don’t have any spinach, you can use chopped peppers or chopped onion instead.  And if you like it hot try adding a little bit of chopped chillies to the egg mixture whilst it’s cooking.
