Juice of 1 lime

Quinoa and Black Bean Filling
Add cooked quinoa, black beans, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, salt and pepper, Swiss cheese and bacon to a bowl. Toss to combine. This makes more than what’ll you need for the burritos. Serve leftovers as a salad for lunch or dinner.

Scrambled Eggs
Whisk eggs with milk. Season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium low heat. When pan is hot, pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are creamy and softly set, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Add kale, avocado, scrambled eggs, quinoa and bean mixture to the centre of each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla. Cut in half and serve.

Yield: 4 servings.
