Recipe by Jess Daniell of Jess’ Underground Kitchen Deli
Makes 4 serves
Takes 15 minutes
1 Tbsp rice bran oil
4 rashers streaky bacon
¼ cup milk
½ cup Tasty cheese, grated
½ tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp cayenne pepper
4 large tortilla wraps
4 Tbsp aïoli
4 Tbsp tomato relish
4 cups baby spinach
4 roasted capsicums, drained
1 cup black beans, cooked & drained
Small handful coriander leaves
4 Tbsp sour cream
Salt & pepper
Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat, and add oil. Cook bacon until crispy, 7–8 minutes. Remove and drain on a paper towel.
Reheat the same pan, reducing heat to medium-low. In a bowl, beat eggs and add milk, cheese, paprika and cayenne pepper. Season well with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the pan and scramble until cooked through, about 3 minutes.
Spread each tortilla with a tablespoon each of aïoli and tomato relish. Divide spinach, capsicums, black beans and coriander between the 4 tortillas. Top with bacon and the scrambled egg. Roll up the tortillas burrito-style, cut them through the middle and serve with a dollop of sour cream on each half. Add a splash of your favourite hot sauce if you like things spicy!
