Breakfast Burrito

When cereals and commercial breads began to make their way onto the shelves of grocery stores, hearty high-protein breakfasts that would "stick to your ribs" as they used to say, fell by the way. Men would go to work filled only with a muffin or a cinnamon roll or some kind of toaster tart, and then become tired and irritable before the morning was over. Here is a recipe that may not require much shopping, as it can include things from the garden.

1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup bottled chunky salsa
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
Nonstick cooking spray or cooking oil
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese or shredded Monterey Jack cheese (2 ounces)
1/4 cup dairy sour cream
4 teaspoons snipped fresh mint
Bottled chunky salsa (optional)
