Breakfast Burrito

Mmmmm burrito

This is really a great way to use up leftover refried beans and scrambled eggs with chorizo. I would have preferred a little more cheese.

Burritos with Scrambled Eggs with Chorizo

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 lb chorizo
  • 1/2 red onion diced fine
  • 2 jalapenos diced fine
  • Salt/pepper
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • tortillas
  • burrito sauce

Fry onion and jalapenos in butter until browned. Cut chorizo out of the casing and brown. Beat eggs with buttermilk and flavor with salt and pepper. Pour into meat mixture and scramble. Spread a spoonful of burrito sauce over a flour tortilla. Add any cheese, beans and eggs and roll up into a burrito. Top with more sauce and bake for 10 minutes in a 365 degree oven.

    It’s really hard to find chorizo here in Singapore but we’re off to Spain in October and plan on bringing back our own body weight in spanish meat 🙂
