Barn Beast Breakfast Burrito
While doing the 100 mile Snow Shoe race in Pittsfield, VT the infamous Barn Beast aka Jason Jaksetic requested breakfast burritos around mile 74. An admitted burrito lover, it was obvious that I had to come up with a recipe in honor of his amazing accomplishment of completing the 100 miles and a burrito recipe is the perfect way to commemorate the historic event. Barn Beast is training for several ultra’s including the Death Race and I hope this burrito recipe makes it into his nutrition rotation. These hearty, clean and healthy versions of the popular breakfast promise lots of energy, less fat, and more nutrition but all the flavor. Clean tip – use corn tortillas instead of whole wheat or flour. They are less processed!
Barn Beast Breakfast Burritos
2 cups egg whites
1/2 Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
½ Cup chopped tomato
½ cup chopped green pepper
1/2 Cup chopped onion
½ Cup black beans
4 corn tortillas
sea salt and fresh black pepper
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
In a small bowl whisk egg whites, Greek Yogurt, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
In a medium skillet coated with cooking spray, saute vegetables and beans until soft. Pour the egg/yogurt mixture over vegetables and cook until mixture sets. Once firm, divide egg mixture among the warmed tortillas. Roll each into a burrito. Garnish with low-fat-sodium salsa
Number of Servings: 4 (unless you are an actual Barn Beast, then it's about two)
