    Method

    For the Salsa Verde

    1. Place all sala verde ingredients, except the cilantro and salt in a blender. Process until almost smooth.
    2.  Pour blended mixture into a pan and bring to a simmer; season with salt and add the cilantro. Process briefly until smooth, taking care not to burn the cilantro.

    1. Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, red peppers, and jalapeno until onions are softened and peppers are slightly charred and caramelized, about 8 minutes. Add black beans and red pepper flakes and cook until warmed through, another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish.

    For the brown rice

    1. In a small bowl, mix the rice with hot sauce and cilantro. Set aside.

    For the eggs

    1. Whisk together the eggs and egg whites in a small bowl and season with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat the skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add eggs, scrambling until cooked through, about 3 minutes. 

    For Assembly

    1. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon each of sour cream and salsa, then layer with some brown rice, one-fourth of the black bean mixture, one-fourth of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato, and one-fourth of the avocado. Roll up burrito-style.
    2. Before serving, wrap in foil and warm in a 350°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes until warmed.
