Recipe

I used to work in Downtown LA and one of my favorite indulgences when I was running late or having a difficult week was this delicious little, actually huge, breakfast quesadilla that they served next to the office. It was loaded with scrambled eggs, black beans, corn, an absurd amount of cheese, and bacon if you asked nicely. Since I have started working from home, I think about that quesadilla often and finally decided it was time to try and make one at home. The catch? I wanted to come up with a recipe that could also easily be frozen and popped into the microwave or a pan for a quick breakfast on the go. What I ended up coming up with was even better than I would have expected.

Directions

  1. Whisk the egg whites and egg together. Scramble in a skillet coated with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the black beans, corn, scrambled eggs, onion, cilantro, shredded cheese, and taco seasoning.
  3. Place 1/3 of the mixture in each tortilla and fold over.
  4. Place in the freezer on a plate or baking sheet lined with parchment for one hour. Remove and wrap individually to store or place in a freezer safe bag.
  5. To reheat, take out the quesadilla and microwave until cheese is melted. To reheat in a skillet, first microwave it to defrost and then warm in a skillet to get the outside nice and crispy.
