Mexican Scrambled Egg Tacos with Black Beans and Rice

Mexican Scrambled Egg Tacos with Beans and Rice

I woke up this morning and decided to flip through the pages of Rick Bayless's cookbook, "Mexican Everyday".  I was looking for something to make for dinner later today, but instead came across a recipe for Mexican Scrambled Egg Tacos and I thought that just sounded SO good.  One of the great things about Rick Bayless's cookbook is that not only does he share some spectacular recipes, he gives tons of tips and insights into how he likes to eat, serve, and change up his recipes.  Regarding this recipe, he mentioned that he always like to have a spoonful of fried black beans with these tacos.  I thought that sounded good too, so I figured I'd just go all out and make a full meal, even though it was only 1:00pm.  Ah, it's Sunday...  no rules today.

I decided to wrap these tacos up like burritos - they're easier to eat that way.  I also added cheese because well, it's a must!  At least for me anyway.  They were delicious and just what I wanted to start the day.  They have a bright, fresh flavor and the fact that I used freshly cooked flour tortillas made them that much better.
