Dad’s Ultimate Breakfast Burritos Recipe

Dad’s Ultimate Breakfast Burritos

10 medium red potatoes, cubed

3 bay leaves

1 ½ tsp. kosher salt, divided

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 medium red pepper, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

4 Tbsp. olive oil, divided

1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup frozen corn

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped

2 tsp. ground cumin

1 ½ tsp. garlic powder

1 ½ tsp. paprika

½ tsp. pepper

10 eggs, beaten

10 flour tortillas (10 inches), warmed

4 cups (16 oz.) shredded cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese


Place the potatoes, bay leaves and ½ teaspoon salt in a Dutch oven and cover with water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until almost tender.  Drain and discard bay leaves.

In a large skillet, cook the green and red peppers, onion and potatoes in 3 tablespoons oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Add the beans, corn, jalapeno, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, pepper and remaining salt; heat through.

In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat.  Add eggs.  Cook and stir until almost set.  Add potatoes mixture.

Spoon 1 cup filling off center of each tortilla.  Sprinkle with ¼ cup cheese.  Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up.  Place on a greased baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.          10 servings
