Breakfast Burrito with Eggs & Guacamole


This is such a delicious breakfast option and with the Christmas holidays approaching and more opportunities for lazing over breakfast I thought this would be a good recipe to post. Dare I say it, for any suffering from hangovers, it’s also a good option with protein from the beans and egg, good fats from the guacamole and a lovely tex mex flavour thanks to the spice mix used in the cooking. Bloody Mary on the side is optional 🙂

Breakfast Burrito with Eggs & Guacamole

Serves 3 but is easily doubled out and will reheat perfectly.
1 medium white onion diced finely
1 tbsp tex mex spice mix from here
1 tin black eyed beans, rinsed and drained
i tbsp tomato passata
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1 or 2 eggs per person as required
1/2 or 1 wrap per person.

Heat a pan over a medium heat
Add the diced onion and sweat until soft but not coloured
Add the passata and the spice mix and cook out for about 3 minutes. Add a splash of water if it looks like it is drying out.
Tip in the drained beans, season well, stir well and cook for about 5 minutes until hot.
Meanwhile dry fry the wraps on a pan until a little golden on each side,
Keep warm which you fry the eggs.
To serve place a wrap onto your plate, top with the bean mixture, followed by your egg and a tablespoon of guacamole.

Salt and Pepper to taste

Tip everything into a blender and blend until smooth,

Guasaca…guacamole with a difference!

This is a dip from Venezuela and the first time I made it, it was great. The second time I put too much red onion in it so go easy. This delicious dip is full of good fats,Beta-Carotene, folic acid, potassium, vitamin C so as well as tasting delicious is really good for you.Enjoy with your favourite veggies or as a side with grilled chicken or other meat.It is great for satisfying hunger cravings after a good work out!..
