Egg, rice and black beans

Dad served his mission in Brazil and we always loved learning new things about his experience there.  A common staple in Brazil is rice and black beans.  Often they would eat the rice and beans together with a fried egg.  It was something dad ate often on his mission and we also enjoyed growing up. One of my favorite parts of this meal was cracking the center of the egg and eating the yolk with a big spoonful of rice and beans.  As an adult it is one of my favorite things to eat when I have left over black beans from another meal.

Egg Burrito

Although Egg Burritos are usually thought of as a breakfast food, we always ate them for lunch in our home.  As a pre-teen and teenager my dad would very often make the family lunch after church.  He would always make what he could make best, eggs. We would all come home, dad would put on his apron and take every one's egg order.  One of my favorite ways to eat my eggs was in a burrito.  It may have stemmed from my love for Mexican food and burritos in general, but I still love a good egg burrito today!

Scramble the eggs and cook to liking.  Combine eggs and all other ingredients in tortilla.  Fold in side, bottom and other side and enjoy!
