Best Breakfast Burrito

Best Breakfast Burrito

This hearty, healthy breakfast burrito recipe is sure to kickstart your morning. I love to serve it with Cilantro Lime Dressing for dipping, but hot sauce, sour cream, or your favorite salsa would be good too.

  • 1/4 lb small round yellow potatoes cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1/2 tsp  olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 12-inch tortilla
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage, optional, for color and crunch
  • 1/4 cup  cooked black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup pico de gallo
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 tsp lime for squeezing


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the potatoes onto the sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, the smoked paprika, and pinches of red pepper flakes. Toss to coat, spread evenly on the pan, and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp around the edges.
  • Heat a grill pan on the stove to medium heat. Place the red pepper on the pan and let it char for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until the pepper is soft and each side has black grill marks. Alternatively, you can roast it in the oven until soft. Remove from the grill, remove the stem and ribbing, and slice the pepper into strips.
  • Scramble the eggs: brush a medium nonstick stick skillet lightly with olive oil and bring to medium heat. Add the eggs, let them cook for a few seconds, and then stir and scramble until the eggs until just set.
  • Assemble the burritos: Divide the spinach leaves and red cabbage, if using, among the tortillas. Top with the eggs, red pepper strips, black beans, pico de gallo, potatoes, avocado, and cilantro. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lime. Fold the left and right sides of the tortilla over the filling. Fold the bottom flap of the burrito up and over the filling, tucking the sides and the filling as you roll the burrito. Wrap in foil, slice, and serve.
