Breakfast Burrito with Refried Black Beans

Breakfast burritos are a sensible, efficient and delicious meal, one that balances carbs and fat with plenty of protein and fiber. The American Institute of Cancer Research's expert report found that foods rich in fiber, such as beans and whole-wheat tortillas offer some protection against colorectal cancer. Research suggests that a healthy breakfast may also help with weight loss efforts. So stayed fueled throughout the morning with this hearty, balanced breakfast.


Bean mixture Ingredients:

1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 (15.5 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 tsp. each ground cumin and ground oregano
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. Himalayan or sea salt

Other ingredients to make one burrito:

1 (9-inch) whole-wheat tortilla
2 Tbsp. salsa
8 baby spinach leaves
1 large egg (preferably cage-free organic)
1 Tbsp. reduced-fat (2 percent) milk (preferably organic or, better still use whole organic raw milk)

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. In medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beans, spices and salt. With fork, coarsely mash about two-thirds of beans with seasonings while they heat. This will fill 4 burritos and can be prepared ahead and refrigerated for 2-3 days.

3. To prepare one burrito, warm tortilla in microwave or skillet. Distribute a scant half-cup of beans over tortilla, leaving a 1-inch border.* Spoon 1 tbsp. salsa over beans. Top with a few spinach leaves.

4. Coat small skillet with olive or other healthy oil over medium-high heat. In small bowl, beat one egg with 1 tbsp. milk. Scramble egg softly and arrange over spinach on tortilla. Add remaining salsa and spinach leaves. Fold up the bottom, then sides of tortilla, then roll up from bottom to close. Serve immediately.

* If using refrigerated bean mixture, place tortilla with beans in a coverd cooking dish such as a casserole container, cover, and heat in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and proceed as above.
