Breakfast burritos are the ultimate satiating breakfast. They’re easily grabbed on the go and stuffed with nutritious ingredients that you keep you full all morning. This burrito, filled with black beans, eggs, cheese, spinach, is topped with salsa. It beats plain eggs any day!

These burritos are vegetarian, but if you want to make them vegan, omit the cheese or use a soy cheese, and use a vegan egg replacement as a substitute for the eggs. Guacamole can be added in place of the yogurt.

Serve these with a delicious juice, coffee, green tea, or a smoothie any day of the week for a super yummy burrito breakfast.
