  • 1 large 9 inch tortilla (flour or whole wheat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons beans (pinto/black beans)
  • 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese , grated
  • 2 tablespoons scallions , chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • Garnish
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  1. In a large microwavable mug press in a fresh tortilla. It will naturally fold into the shape of the mug and find its way.
  2. Crack in your eggs and whisk up with a fork, taking care not to tear the tortilla.
  3. Now add in your favorite burrito mixins like cheese, beans, and scallions. Season with salt and pepper and mix all together. Whatever ingredients you have to hand will work great.

  4. Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Check, and if the eggs are still liquid, cook for another 15 -20 seconds. Keep an eye during cooking so the eggs don’t overheat. You don’t want an egg-splosion in your microwave. The cook time is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary.

  5. Once done, let it sit for 3 minutes to cool and serve with some sour cream and salsa on top. I like to eat a little out of the middles and then lift it out of the mug and roll it like a burrito.
