Mexican Breakfast Burritos

With the school year approaching, I am busy trying to find easy grab-and-go breakfasts to help my family survive hectic mornings. We tend to eat a lot of muffins, pancakes, and waffles, so I’m always on the look-out for easy recipes that include more food groups. These Mexican Breakfast Burritos fit the bill and they are SO good. We loved them so much the first time we had them, I made them again for dinner the next night.

Lightly beat eggs and hot sauce together and then scramble over medium heat. Set eggs aside. In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, cumin, salt, and lime juice. Layer eggs, black bean/corn mixture, and cheese among tortillas. Fold two sides of the tortillas in and roll the tortilla in a burrito shape.

Freezing Directions:

Place burritos on a baking sheet and flash freeze. Once frozen, place in a gallon freezer bag, label, and freeze. To Serve: Thaw. Microwave or heat in oven at 375 for 10 minutes, or until warm throughout.

Servings: 4 burritos

    Any advice on how to heat the burritos from frozen and keep them from getting soggy? I have tried these as well as just cooking the fillings and freezing them without the tortilla. Thank you!

      Cheryl, I like to heat them up in the oven. Basically I preheat the oven when I first wake up and then I bake them at about 400 while I’m making coffee and going through the routine. In past I’ve also reheated on a skillet too that gives it more of a crust on the outside which is still delicious.

      Hi Cheryl,

      I wrap all my burritos in those foil sheets from Sam’s and heat them in the oven (still in the foil) straight from frozen at about 400 – 425 for about 20 minutes.

      I’ve found that microwaving doesn’t heat them through without making the tortilla tough and chewy. So I use my toaster oven on the convection setting (no pre-heating required) and just set the time and temp before I get in the shower. It usually takes us about 45 minutes to get out the door, and they’re still warm and soft and melty (is that a word?) by the time we leave for school.

    If Microwaving, what would the time for cooking be?

      Kim– it depends on the microwave, but if they are thawed first, I’d start with 30 seconds and increase time as needed, until they are heated throughout.
