Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

The recipe Best Breakfast Burrito could satisfy your Mexican craving in about 45 minutes. This recipe makes 4 servings with 1677 calories, 43g of protein, and 73g of fat each. For $4.37 per serving, this recipe covers 48% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. This recipe from Foodista has 1 fans. A mixture of flour tortillas, onion, egg substitute, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so flavorful. To use up the olive oil you could follow this main course with the Sauteed Banana, Granolan and Yogurt Parfait as a dessert. Not a lot of people really liked this main course. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 84%. This score is super. Try McDonald’s Breakfast Burrito – a famous breakfast burrito you can make it at home, Breakfast Burrito (Ww), and Breakfast Burrito for similar recipes.

Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Tortoise Creek Mission Grove Pinot Noir with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 12 dollars per bottle.

Tortoise Creek Mission Grove Pinot Noir

This wine has lovely aromas of violets and ripe cherries. It is soft on the palate, delicate, but with delightful impressions of raspberries and other red fruits. This is a gorgeous food wine and works well with roast meats, tuna and cheeses.

Instructions

  1. While potatoes are frying, heat vegetable oil in another fry pan over medium. Cook and chop up patties with your spatula (you can microwave them for 30 seconds to soften first), then add beaten eggs and cook through. Salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.
  2. Assembly: Warm tortillas in the microwave for 45 seconds wrapped in damp paper towel, then lay out and layer each with potatoes, egg/sausage mix and cheese. You can also put salsa inside, but I prefer mine on the outside. Wrap like a regular burrito and lay in one of your fry pans on medium heat to melt cheese and seal shut.
  3. Potatoes: Boil 4 medium gold potatoes, cubed, for 8 minutes, then drained and set aside. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a fry pan over medium-high and add 2 minced garlic cloves and (optional) 1 small chopped onion. Add potatoes and season with 1 tbs paprika, then salt and pepper to taste and fry until browned
  4. Salsa: Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Lycopene, the chemical in tomatoes that makes them red (and healthy), is fat soluble. This means eating tomatoes with a fat — say, avocado or olive oil?improves the body's ability to absorb the lycopene. Don't hesitate to include some healthy fats in this dish to get the most health benefits from the tomatoes!

Cooking Tips

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • Just a head's up: tomatoes shouldn't be refrigerated! They will lose their flavor and probably get mushy too. For more on selecting and storing tomatoes and other vegetables, check out the academy.

Green Tips

  • Tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes, should be bought organic when possible. Moreover, buying tomatoes from your local farmers' market when they are in season is going to make your dish much, much tastier, not to mention more eco-friendly. In fact, we recommend using canned — or better yet, jarred?tomato products when tomatoes aren't in season instead of buying imported or greenhouse-grown tomatoes.
