Recipe by Happy Hippie
Oh my goodness, these burritos turned out so good. I invented this recipe last night wanting to prepare breakfast burritos for my husband and grandson. It was getting late, so I wanted to fix something quick and easy but tasty. These filled the bill perfectly. I'd like to add here that I needed to prepare these without being spicy. If I'd been making them for me and my daughter, I would add some of several possibilites such as chopped green chilis, salsa, onion, garlic; any number of options you can think of. I'll write up this recipe as I prepared them, but add whatever you like - go wild! I believe these burritos would be perfect for OAMC.
- 2 1⁄2 lbs pinto beans, canned, rinsed and drained (40 oz. can)
- 12 eggs
- 4 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
- water, as needed
- 12 flour tortillas, burrito-size (approximately 8-10 inches)
- 8 ounces monterey jack cheese, grated
