Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Start your day off right with this simple and well-balanced breakfast. Have a whole-wheat tortilla to boost your fiber and nutrient intake and an orange to help your body absorb the iron in the black beans.

Ingredients

  • 1 jumbo egg plus 3 egg whites, beaten, or 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 scallion, white part only, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon low-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoon black beans
  • 3 tablespoon chunky garden-style salsa
  • 1 10" flour tortilla

Preparation (Makes 1 Burrito)
In a nonstick skillet, cook the egg and onion. When the eggs are almost done, stir in the cream cheese and beans. Place the tortilla over the eggs in the skillet until warm. Remove the tortilla, top with the scrambled egg mixture and the salsa and roll up.
