Casa Vega Breakfast Burrito

Recipe by: Christy Vega
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min
Serves: 1

 

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 (10-inch) flour tortilla
  • 1/2 cup refried beans, cooked
  • 1/2 cup Spanish rice, cooked
  • 1/4 cup Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 fresh avocado, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream

Heat butter in a small fry pan over medium heat. In a small bowl, beat eggs together with a whisk. Add eggs to pan and scramble until cooked. Remove from heat. Warm tortilla in a pan or on a grill. Heat the cooked beans and rice until heated through. Spread the beans down the center of the tortilla. Add the rice, eggs, cheese, avocado, and sour cream.

Once you have the filling in place, fold the bottom half of the burrito over to the top. Lightly pressing down on the filling, pull the top portion of the tortilla back toward you, forming the filling into a roll. Next, fold one side in and then the other side.

With both ends folded, tightly roll your tortilla into a burrito.
