Who says burritos don’t make a good breakfast food? These California breakfast burritos can be prepared in 25 minutes and they’ll make a great alternative to your typical morning meal routine. Here is what you’ll need:
For the burrito
- A pair of twelve to fourteen-inch flour tortillas
- One ¼ cup of Mexican crema
- Eight ounces of shaved prime beef tenderloin
- A cup of salsa verde
- Four eggs
- An avocado cut into slices of ¼ inch in thickness
- A pair of cups of shredded Jack cheese
- One cup of French fries
For the Mojo Asada:
- A tablespoon of dried Mexican oregano
- Half a cup of pickled jalapeños with brine
- Navel orange zest and juice
- Three garlic cloves
- Lime zest and juice
- One stemmed serrano chile
- A ¼ cup of soy sauce
- Half a bunch of cilantro leaves and stems
To make the spicy Mojo Asada, make sure to puree all of the ingredients using a blender. Once that’s done, marinate the beef tenderloin in the puree for a minimum of an hour or overnight.
Using medium-low heat, heat a large skillet and use it to soft-scramble the four eggs. Lay out each of the tortillas and divide the eggs evenly among the two, making sure to do it in a straight line down the middle third of the tortilla. Top both of the tortillas off with the Jack cheese.
After you wipe the pan/skillet, turn up the heat to medium-high. Take the steak out of the Mojo Asada marinade and place it in the pan, allowing it to cook through for about five minutes. Halfway through the process, add the fries.
As you did with the eggs, divide the steak between the pair of tortillas, placing it beside the egg in the tortilla’s upper two-thirds. Top both of the tortillas off with avocado.
Fold the tortilla sides towards the middle, placing your thumb just below the filling ingredients while keeping the rest of your fingers underneath the tortilla. Tightly fold the top third over the filling and then push in using your thumb so that the filling is “tucked” into the tortilla. Roll it towards you to add the finishing touch and repeat the process for the other tortilla.
Make sure the skillet is clean and turn it down to medium heat. Making sure the fold is facing down, place both burritos on the skillet and cook them for about a minute until they’re crisp. Top them off with the cream and salsa verde before serving.
