1 serving


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed

  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt-free southwest chipotle seasoning blend

  • 1 whole-wheat flour tortilla

  • 2 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons canned no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 tablespoons refrigerated fresh pico de gallo or chopped tomato plus more for garnish


  1. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Add egg to hot skillet; sprinkle with seasoning blend. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until egg begins to set on the bottom and around edge. Using a spatula or a large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg so that the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking over medium heat for 30 to 60 seconds or until egg is cooked through but is still glossy and moist.

  2. Immediately spoon cooked egg onto one side of the tortilla. Top with cheese, beans and the 2 tablespoons pico de gallo. Fold tortilla over filling to cover; press gently.

  3. Wipe out the same skillet with a paper towel. Coat skillet with cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Cook filled tortilla in hot skillet about 2 minutes or until tortilla is browned and filling is heated through, turning once. If desired, top with additional pico de gallo.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
