The homemade black bean salsa recipe adds a special touch and takes just 10 minutes, but you can also use your favorite prepared salsa to make this faster.”


    • Salsa
    • 1 cup diced seeded plum tomatoes (3-4 tomatoes)
    • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
    • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • ½-1 teaspoon minced chipotle chile in adobo sauce (see Tip)
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • Burrito
    • 4 8-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
    • 4 large eggs
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • Freshly ground pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles
    • ½ cup grated Cheddar or pepper Jack cheese
    • ¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream


  • 1 To prepare salsa: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; stir to blend. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 2 To prepare burritos: Preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap tortillas in foil and heat in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, blend eggs, ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper in a medium bowl with a fork until well combined. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add green chiles and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the eggs and cook, stirring slowly with a wooden spoon or heatproof rubber spatula, until soft, fluffy curds form, 1½ to 2½ minutes.
  • 4 To serve, divide eggs evenly among the tortillas. Sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons cheese and roll up. Serve with sour cream and the salsa.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the salsa (Step 1) for up to 2 days.
  • Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful, spicy sauce. Look for the small cans with Mexican foods at large supermarkets. Once opened, they'll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.
