protein-packed breakfast tacos - a delicious twist on your usual scrambled eggs packed with two different types of protein // cait's plate

I don’t know about you guys, but this dish works for me on two levels:

One, it gives me an excuse to eat my weekend scrambled eggs with something different than my usual whole wheat bagel.  And two, it gives me an excuse to eat tacos at breakfast.

And let’s be honest, the more tacos in life, the better.

Especially when they pack double the protein, whole grains, heart healthy fat, and veggies!  That’s a pretty darn good way to kick off the morning right?!  Add some orange slices on the side and you’ve got a perfectly balanced breakfast that tastes great and fills you up.

I also love how ridiculously simple these little things are without sacrificing an ounce of flavor.  I’m a firm believer that the simplest ingredients create some of the most delicious dishes.

Part of the success of this dish was that I utilized Amy’s black refried beans which are so flavorful in and of themselves that it meant I actually had to do very little work to make these taste as good as they do.

  2. Crack two eggs into a small bowl

  4. Place a non-stick pan over medium high heat (you can grease the pan if you prefer to be sure it won't stick) and add egg mixture to it.

  6. Layer half the eggs over refried black beans on one tortilla and the other half on the next
  7. Divide the cheese in half and sprinkle each tortilla with its dedicated portion
