How To Make Vegetarian Breakfast Burritos

Start the day with these filling vegetarian breakfast burritos. They come with eggs scrambled with beans, hash browns, and salsa wrapped in a warm tortilla.

Preparation: 25 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 68-inch whole grain tortillas
  • 1batchhomemade hash browns*
  • 6large eggs
  • 1cupcooked pinto beans,or black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼tspsalt
  • hot sauce,(several dashes), such as Cholula
  • 1tbspunsalted butter
  • cupshredded sharp cheddar cheese,packed
  • ½cupchopped cilantro,divided
  • ½cupchopped green onion,mostly green parts, divided
  • 6tbspsalsa,plus extra for serving
  • 1large avocado,diced, optional if serving the burritos right away


  1. Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and whisk them with a fork until the mixture is pale yellow. Stir in the beans and season with salt and hot sauce.

  2. Melt the butter in a medium-sized skillet (either well-seasoned cast-iron or nonstick) over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook for about 2 to 4 minutes, stirring often, until the eggs are just set.

  3. Stir in the cheese and transfer the mixture to a bowl. Then stir in the cilantro and green onion (if serving the burritos right away, reserve a small amount of each for garnish).

  4. To make sure the tortillas are nice and pliable, quickly run each tortilla under running water. Warm the tortillas briefly in the microwave for about 10 to 20 seconds or in a skillet.

  5. Working with one tortilla at a time, spread about ⅓ cup hash browns on a tortilla about ⅓ from the edge.

  6. Drizzle 1 tablespoon salsa on top of the hash browns. Top with about ⅓ cup scrambled eggs.

  7. Roll up the burrito by first folding the tortilla over from the bottom to partially cover the contents, then fold in the two sides. Finish rolling and put the burrito seam side down on a plate. Repeat with the remaining burritos.

  8. If serving the burritos right away, halve them or serve them whole. Warm some extra salsa in the microwave or on the stove, then pour it over the burritos.

  9. Top with diced avocado (if using) and the reserved cilantro and green onion. Serve immediately, with a knife and a fork.

  10. If freezing the burritos for later, let the burritos cool to room temperature, then wrap each burrito in plastic wrap. Transfer the wrapped burritos to a freezer-safe bag and squeeze out the air before sealing.

  11. Store the burritos in the freezer. For best flavor, consume the burritos within 3 to 6 months.

  12. To defrost frozen burritos, unwrap the plastic wrap and then wrap the burrito in a damp paper towel. Microwave for about 2 to 3 minutes, until warmed throughout.
