Since moving to Texas, I’ve fallen in love with the breakfast taco and all of its many possibilities. But these Best Breakfast Burritos by ever-entertaining TK member Bev Weidner caught my eye because of the beautiful mound of spinach on top. That is not something I’ve tried before and I decided it was time. But what is great about these is that they are really your canvas to throw on whatever you love—that’s what makes them delicious.

You will need: olive oil, spinach, egg, tortilla, shredded cheese, hot sauce, salt and pepper, and cilantro or other herbs to garnish. (Plus I added a little something extra that you’ll see later, because I couldn’t help it. That’s just how it goes with these.)

Sprinkle some cheese on a tortilla and pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and let the spinach wilt for about 1-2 minutes. Give it a little sprinkle of salt and pepper as you do.

Place it in a nice pile onto your warm tortilla.

Then, remove the pan from the heat and crack your egg into it.

I like this method because if the pan is cool enough, you can scramble it without having to whisk it in a bowl first. No extra dirty dishes!

Add the cooked egg to your warm tortilla.

Then, because I couldn’t help myself, I added avocado. Because I need to. But you can do what moves you.

I overstuffed it, I know. But that’s what napkins are for.

This was excellent! We had it for dinner tonight and everyone raved about it. I sauted the spinach in oil and a clove of chopped garlic and served a pico de gallo salsa on top. YUM!
