Black beans and scrambled eggs are gently flavored with cumin, garlic and onion. Packed into a tortilla, they make a great breakfast burrito (or serve at lunch or dinner!. You could serve these plain, or with a wide variety of toppings. And with these only being about a dollar a serving, you will have a yummy treat for very little.
I made these just for me and Elena yesterday. I can be the Queen of simple cooking, and usually make the plainest of plain lunches for us (or reheat leftovers). But yesterday I decided to put just a bit more effort into our lunch and this was the delicious result. We made two burritos and then ate the rest of the filling on the side. I would probably figure two burritos per person.

Scrambled Egg and Black Bean Burrito Filling Makes enough for 4 medium sized burritos
I am not sharing my sourdough tortilla recipe today, but it’s similar in a lot of ways to this recipe. As I was sharing this with my three year old, I made it quite mild. But you could easily add a bit more spice to this filling by adding just a bit of something like red pepper or cayenne pepper. Even better, you could serve this with a salsa, sour cream, or hot sauce. Oh, and the black beans discolors the eggs. If that bothers you, cook the eggs separate.
2 teaspoons ghee, butter, coconut oil, or olive oil
1/4 cup of chopped onion
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1 small clove of garlic
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 cups of cooked black beans
3 eggs, lightly whisked
1-In a small saucepan, heat the ghee until. Add the onion and red pepper and lightly salt. Cook until the onion and red pepper are very soft and sweet. If they start to brown, turn down the heat. You want to mostly soften, not brown. Add the garlic and cumin and cook for another minute.
2-Add the black beans (you can add a bit more ghee or oil if needed), and cook until heated through. Then add the eggs. Scramble the eggs with the rest of the ingredients. I like to use a fork for this task. Salt to taste, and it’s done!
