Spicy Breakfast Burritos

My husband grew up in California and loves Mexican food. He wants Mexican for every meal and I oblige 25% of the time, haha. When he requested breakfast burritos for his first Father’s Day I was not surprised. Below is the recipe for how to make his favorite breakfast burritos. These burritos would also make a fun breakfast buffet when hosting guests. Let guests stuff their own burritos and have multiple garnish options (cilantro, greek yogurt as sour cream, avocado, salsa, hot sauce).



(makes 2 servings)


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of milk or half & half
  • 1/2 orange pepper
  • 1/2 yellow pepper
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 1/2 can of black beans
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 2 spoonfuls of salsa
  • 1 teaspoon Tapatio Salsa Picante Hot Sauce
  • 2 flour tortilla shells
  • 2 spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 avocado
  • Salt and pepper


Slice peppers and onions into thin strips. Spray small saucepan with olive oil and sauté over low-medium heat for around 10-15 minutes or until tender. The last few minutes, throw in black beans to heat up. Remove from saucepan and set aside.  Whisk eggs together with milk and a little salt and pepper. Pour into small sauce pan over low-medium heat. Scramble eggs until cooked thoroughly. Place eggs in separate bowl and add hot sauce over eggs. Cook bacon in microwave, oven, or stove top until crispy. Shred bacon into bits. Lay out each flour tortilla. Using a spoon, place a line of salsa down each tortilla. Top with pepper/onion/bean mix, eggs, cheese, and bacon. Carefully roll tortilla tucking the edges in as you roll. Spray a medium size sauce pan with some olive oil and heat up on low-medium heat. Place rolled burritos seam side down on sauce pan. Heat until slightly browned then turn and heat other side until slightly browned. Remove and top with avocado and greek yogurt.
