Fiber-Filled Breakfast Burrito

Fiber-Filled Breakfast Burrito

Yes, avocados are included, so you can be sure it will be tasty.

Because they’re portable, breakfast burritos are a terrific option for hectic mornings. If you take an oversized tortilla and pack it full of sausage and cheese, it will rudely awaken you. We’ve cut the calories in half without sacrificing nutrition or taste by using whole wheat tortillas in place of worthless white ones, lean chicken sausage in place of fatty hog sausage, and plenty of fresh avocado and fiber-rich beans.


  • 1⁄2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cooked chicken sausage links, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chopped cilantro
  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas, 10″ (Note: La Tortilla Factory makes excellent 100-calorie tortillas with 8 grams of fiber.)
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed, drained, and heated
  • 1⁄2 cup shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • Salsa
  • Pickled Jalapeños, optional

Method of Fiber-Filled Breakfast Burrito

Step 1

In a large skillet or sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Sausage and onion should be added and cooked for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Reduce the temperature.


Step 2

Transfer the eggs to the frying pan. Cook the eggs slowly, stirring them frequently with a wooden spoon, until they are set but still wet.

Step 3

Take off the stove, add the cilantro, and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

After wrapping the tortillas in damp paper towels, give them a 45-second microwave heating cycle. (Or gently toast and reheat each one separately in a dry pan.)

Step 5

Spoon the avocado, cheese, beans, and eggs onto each tortilla. Roll tightly and garnish each burrito with more cilantro, salsa, and jalapeños (if desired).


When you start with a sturdy tortilla, breakfast wraps, and burri tos turn into a fantastic, portable supply of the two nutrients you need most in the morning: protein and fiber. Try any of these other excellent breakfast recipes, or use this as a guide to create a unique and delicious concoction:
