Directions

Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. Cook the onions and peppers until onions are softened and peppers are slightly charred, about 8 minutes. Add black beans and red pepper flakes and cook until warmed through, another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish.

Whisk together the eggs and egg whites then stir in the cheese. Spray the skillet with cooking spray, and reheat the skillet over a medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add eggs, scrambling until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon each sour cream and salsa, then layer with 1/4 of the black bean mixture, 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato and 1/4 of the avocado. Season, to taste, with hot sauce. Roll up burrito-style and serve.

    This tastes terrific! I prepare the veggies for several at a time and keep them in the fridge ready to cook. I only use egg whites and I can't taste the difference. I have tried adding a little cooked turkey sausage crumbled instead of the beans. I put half a slice of pepper jack cheese next to the tortilla when warm the tortilla in a non stick skillet. It adheres well to the tortilla and then I add the cooked egg whites and pile on all kinds of cooked veggies. Red bell pepper and any type of squash or onion work particularly well. I toss them in a non stick skillet till they are tender. This is very filling. I think mine are lower calorie than this recipe .
