Servings 4 people


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 small red onion diced (1 cup)
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 cup canned black beans drained, rinsed
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 10-inch whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 large tomato seeded and diced
  • 1 small avocado cubed
  • hot sauce optional


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onions and peppers for 8 minutes or until onions are softened and peppers are slightly charred.
  • Add black beans and red pepper flakes and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until warmed through.
  • Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish.

  • Recoat the skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil and reheat the skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add eggs, scrambling for 3 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon each sour cream and salsa, then layer with 1/4 of the black bean mixture, 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato and 1/4 of the avocado.
  • Season, to taste, with hot sauce. Roll up burrito-style and serve.
