So I loveeeee tacos and can eat them everyday. I especially love breakfast tacos so thinking about this recipe I was like -- what could I do -- and instantly a veggie breakfast wrap came into mind. It’s full of flavor and you’re not missing any of the meat. This dish was inspired by watching @Mollybaz on instagram make a breakfast crunchwrap on IGLive and I decided to add some flair to it! IT WAS EVERYTHING!
Now let's get cooking!
~ PART 1: BLACK REFRIED-ISH MASHED BEANS~
- 1 15oz, can black beans, lightly drained (or 1/2 cup dry beans soaked & cooked)
- 1 teaspoon, Loisa Sazón
- 1 teaspoon, Loisa Adobo
- Salt & pepper to taste
- In a saucepan, add black beans & Loisa Sazón and Adobo and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Once simmering, taste to adjust seasoning and then with a potato masher or wooden spoon, mash the beans. The reason why we kept a little bit of the water it comes in, so the beans won’t dry out when mashing. Usually refried beans are made with some type of lard but this is a veggie version!
~ PART 2: ROASTED TOMATILLO SALSA~
- 4 tomatillos, in their husk
- 1 poblano pepper, cut in half
- 1 jalapeno pepper, cut in half
- ½ white onion, roughly chopped
- 3 garlic cloves
- ½ cup of cilantro
- 1 lime, juiced
- Salt for seasoning
- Turn the broil high on your oven. On a sheet pan lay the peppers, onions & garlic and cover in olive oil and a little salt. Let the veggies char under the broiler for about 5-10 minutes (depending on your stove) just until you start to see the black on the veggies.
- Once veggies are done, add everything in a food processor or blender along with the cilantro & the juice of a lime.
- Blend until chunky & taste to adjust seasoning with salt.
~ PART 3: PICO DE GALLO~
- 1 roma tomato, halved & seeds removed
- ¼ white onion, chopped
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 jalapeno, chopped
- Salt for seasoning
- Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and taste to adjust seasoning with salt.
~ PART 4: VEGGIE BREAKFAST CRUNCHWRAP ASSEMBLY~
- 1 egg, scrambled to your liking (I like soft scrambled eggs, alt: simple tofu scramble with Loisa Adobo!)
- 1 12inch tortilla
- Avocado slices
- Shredded cheese (optional, alt: your fave vegan cheese)
- Black refried-ish mashed beans
- Roasted tomatillo salsa
- Pico de gallo
- Preheat a nonstick pan with a little olive oil on medium high heat.
- Lay your tortilla on your cutting board and begin to layer with your refried-ish beans first, then the egg, then the roasted tomatillo sauce, then the pico!
- Top with avocado & cheese (if you like) and roll it into a burrito. Add the your burrito seaside down to the pan and let it get nice and golden brown & crispy! Bonus: wrap in aluminum foil to feel like a real burrito spot! :-)
