How to Make Black Bean, Egg and Corn Wraps
For the beans, throw a handful of drained and rinsed black beans, some frozen corn and a minced garlic into a little bit of oil over medium heat. Cook everything until warmed through then season with a bit of salt and pepper.
Set the beans and corn aside then make the omelet. We usually need two wraps, so make an omelet with two eggs, you can adjust as you see fit. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add a pinch of red pepper flakes as well as come cumin. Whisk then fry with a little cheese sprinkled on top. When cooked, remove the omelet and cut into strips — we do this all the time and add to salads.
Grab a warmed tortilla, spread a small amount of sour cream on the bottom and pile in some omelet strips, beans and corn as well as a generous handful of tomato and lettuce. Wrap them up then stick a toothpick through them so they are secure, and then sear both the top and bottom of the wraps in a hot pan until lightly golden brown.
