Large Flour Tortillas (I bought 2 packs of 16 each, but did not use them all)
2 dozen eggs
2 cans black beans (you can use dried beans if you prefer, you just need to cook them up, of course)
Gather all ingredients in one place
Brown sausage in a large skillet (mine is 12″)
While the sausage is cooking, grate cheese (or set the kids to work on grating the cheese, which is what I always do…) and drain & rinse the black beans
Set browned sausage aside. Scramble eggs in a large bowl. Heat the same skillet used for the sausage and pour the eggs in. Cook and stir until cooked/scrambled.
Pour the beans and sausage on top of the eggs in the skillet and mix well. (Why bother dirtying another bowl for mixing, right?)
Warm tortillas so they fold easily (You’ll want to warm just a few at a time so they don’t cool before you’re ready for them). Lay 1 tortilla out on your counter, and scoop about 1/2 cup of the egg mixture onto one side (don’t use anymore than that, or they won’t roll very well, but you could do a little less and get more burritos out of the mix, if you wanted to)
Top with a little salsa and shredded cheese. Then fold, starting at the end with the “stuff” on it, then folding in the sides and roll until it looks like a burrito. Once it’s all rolled/folded up, wrap in plastic wrap.
Continue until all the mixture is gone, or until you run out of tortillas, whichever comes first. You can, of course, personalize these to suit your family’s tastes. Leave out the salsa, leave out the sausage, add veggies, add shredded potatoes… you are limited only by your imagination!
Once you’ve finished all the rolling, place the wrapped burritos into a large freezer-safe container or freezer bag. When ready to eat, just unwrap, and wrap in a microwave-safe paper towel. Microwave on high 1-3 minutes (You’ll have to test it, and it will depend on how much or how little stuffing you put in, and on your microwave, too….)
Enjoy for breakfast, after-school snacks, or late-night snacks!
