Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burrito

I had some taco fixing leftover in the refrigerator so I decided to make myself a breakfast burrito. I warmed up a leftover tortilla, some black beans and corn, then scrambled some eggs, and put it all in the tortilla along with some avocado, tomato, green onions, cotija cheese, and cilantro. I served this burrito with some of the Simple Spicy Salsa on the side. It was a quick, healthy, and delicious breakfast that gave me the boost I needed before my bike ride.

Heat a skillet coated with cooking spray over medium high heat. Combine the eggs with the milk then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Whisk until smooth. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Constantly fold the egg mixture from the bottom of the pan to the top. This will keep them from overcooking and the middle section will stay soft and fluffy. Do this constantly for 1 or 2 minutes, or until the eggs are set.  Do not overcook. Remove from heat.

While the eggs are cooking, heat the black beans and corn in the microwave until hot, about 20 seconds. Wrap a tortilla in a dish towel then place into the microwave for 20 seconds or until warm and pliable.

Place the beans and corn down the center of the warm tortilla then top with the scrambled eggs, slices of avocado, tomato, green onion, cotija cheese, and fresh cilantro. Roll into a burrito then place on a plate seam side down. Serve with salsa. Enjoy.

    I need to try this for Trevor. He has been stuck in a bacon/egg/cheese breakfast sandwich rut for weeks now but that is all he wants. I make him breakfast every morning but never eat breakfast myself.
