The Southwestern Breakfast Burrito is a hearty, flavor-packed breakfast option inspired by Southwestern cuisine. It combines eggs, cheese, black beans, avocado, and salsa, all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. It’s perfect for a fulfilling start to the day or a brunch item with a kick.


  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup salsa (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: cilantro, sour cream, hot sauce for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion and red bell pepper until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the onion and bell pepper. Scramble the eggs until they are just set.
  4. Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave to make them pliable.
  5. Assemble the burritos: Lay out each tortilla and divide the scrambled egg mixture among them. Top each with black beans, cheddar cheese, avocado slices, and a spoonful of salsa.
  6. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll up tightly to enclose the filling.
  7. If desired, return the burritos to the skillet with the remaining olive oil, and cook each side until browned for a crispy exterior.
  8. Garnish with cilantro, sour cream, and hot sauce if desired.
