Comin’ back atcha with some more sweet potato goodness in the form of breakfast burritos. Because A) you guys really love sweet potatoes and B) you guys really love breakfast burritos…. which makes sense because those are two of the best foods on earth. Why not combine them?

So what we have going on in these breakfast burritos is smoky roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, fluffy scrambled eggs, melty cheese, and hot sauce. I’ve tried them with sriracha, salsa, and a chipotle-based sauce and so far, my favorite is sriracha. Sometimes I even get a little ambitious and whip up some guacamole to dip them in for good measure.

These breakfast burritos are so easy to prep in a large batch and reheat for quick breakfasts. I like to wrap them in foil so they can be popped right into the oven and reheated in just a few minutes.

  2. In a medium-sized skillet, heat oil to medium. Pour in whisked eggs. Add salt and pepper. Scramble occasionally until the eggs are cooked through. Mix in black beans. Set aside.
  3. In each tortilla, spread shredded cheese, then scoop in eggs and sweet potatoes. If desired, add a spoonful of salsa.
  4. Roll up the burritos, folding in the ends first and tucking in any loose filling as you go. Once they’re all rolled, wrap them in foil and store in the refrigerator or freezer. See the notes for reheating instructions.

    These are so good! I’ve made 3 batches already and plan to keep on making them! I actually used 50 calorie tortilla’s I found at Walmart and mixed real eggs with eggbeaters to lower the calories. I also left the salsa out until they were ready to eat to keep them from being soggy. Instead of baking these I wrapped them in a paper towel and used the frozen entree setting on my microwave. They are ready in a little over a minute! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I love really intense, bold flavors, so Mexican food for breakfast is my FAVORITE. Do you think these will freeze as well if I layer on some salsa too, or will that make the tortilla too soggy?

      Same here! I love Mexican food for breakfast! :) You could definitely add some salsa. I haven’t had any issues with that making them soggy. Let me know what you think!
