Prep time


Cooking time






  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

  • 1/2 small red onion (diced)

  • 1 red bell pepper (seeded and diced)

  • 1 cup canned black beans (drained and rinsed)

  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 whole eggs

  • 4 egg whites

  • 1/3 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese

  • non-stick cooking spray

  • 4 whole wheat tortillas (burrito size)

  • 1/4 cup reduced fat-free sour cream

  • 1/4 cup salsa

  • 1 large tomato (seeded and diced)

  • 1 small avocado (cubed)

  • Hot sauce


  • Add 2 teaspoons of canola oil to a large non-stick skillet. Heat over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add in diced onions and peppers. Cook for about 8 minutes so the onions are soft and the peppers are slightly charred.
  • Then add black beans and black pepper flakes and cook for another 3 minutes or until warmed through. Use low-sodium black beans if possible, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites together. Once whisked, stir in your cheese.
  • Reheat your skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Turn the heat to low before adding in the whisked eggs. Scramble for about 3 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Spread a tablespoon of sour cream over each tortilla. If you don’t have sour cream, use 2 percent plain Greek yogurt instead.
  • Add salsa to your tortillas and then layer each with 1/4 of the black bean mixture, 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato, and 1/4 of the avocado. Add hot sauce to taste, roll up, and enjoy your homemade breakfast burritos.
