make ahead breakfast burrito

I stole this recipe from VitaMama but I'm allowed because she's family :)

Breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day. It's the one you need the most but often the one you have the least amount of time to prepare. And I typically don't have a giant appetite in the morning, so that leaves me with a piece of toast or cereal. BORRRING.

This discovery is my new fave. Make it on Monday morning (or Sunday night) and have it all week. The Boy and I can share a batch for at least three or four days.

  • 1/2 onion (diced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 5 eggs, scrambled
  • Cumin, cilantro
  • Cheddar Cheese

Sautee the onion and pepper until tender. Add black beans. Add eggs and stir until cooked. Add cumin, cilantro to taste and top with cheddar cheese. I like to add a splash of hot sauce, because I'm fiesty like that. Serve over a tortilla.

Salivating? YUM.

Are you a toast-on-the-go kind of girl? Smoothie?
Cookies? [Don't lie, we've all been there]

What do you eat for breakfast?
