Today is the beginning of a new school year here in Texas and over the weekend, I made a batch of these huevos rancheros breakfast burritos to make our mornings easier.

Each of these burritos is filled with black beans, eggs, cheese and cilantro and individually frozen.  In the mornings, we grab one and put it in the microwave to heat and can enjoy a delicious breakfast in minutes.

I make these for my husband and daughter but if you’re one of my readers who come to One Dish Kitchen for single serving recipes, these breakfast burritos will be perfect for you.

Step 1

Open up a can of black beans, rinse them and drain them. I heat them up in a pan along with chopped onions and garlic and a few chopped chipotle peppers.

I like my breakfast burritos a little spicy but if you don’t, just leave the chipotle peppers out.

  1. These look delicious! I’ll be making them for a girlfriend’s trip to the beach. Couple of questions. So, flour tortillas right? 10 inch? Defrost then heat how? Microwave? Time/Temp? Traditional oven? Time/Temp? Or fried? Thanks for all the wonderful recipes. Can’t wait for the cookbook! ! !

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Thank you for catching that I didn’t add the reheating instructions. They have been added to the recipe card.
      Yes, use 8 or 10-inch flour tortillas.
      Reheating instructions: If heating from frozen, unwrap and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.
      If heating from thawed, microwave 60 to 90 seconds.
      Enjoy your trip!

  2. 4 stars
    These are really good but better in my opinion, with some sausage crumbles and when you make sure to soft scramble the eggs. When you reheat scrambled eggs they get dry otherwise.

  3. 5 stars
    I love make-ahead breakfast recipes. They offer a quick (and healthier) option to start off your day. One of my favorite things about having them ready to go in the freezer is that they are good for any time of day, and not JUST for breakfast! Looking forward to putting my own spin on this idea. Thanks for sharing.
