With Turkey Chili

Will’s Best Breakfast Burrito EVA!! (& His Chili Recipe!!)

With Turkey Chili
Just a generic chili, so you got something to look at!

Today’s recipe comes to us from a friend of mine from back home!  We went to school together and partied quite hard as it were.  His name’s Will Shaw, and the man wants you to be eating breakfast burritos in your beds!  He was awesome enough to send me his recipe for a killer breakfast burrito.  The best part about it is that it fits in with starting to eat healthy as the summer approaches.  What makes is a healthier alternative to a normal breakfast burrito?  No rice, and the only beans are black beans from the chili which are loaded with fiber and protein.  It also has folate rich spinach, and an egg cooked in olive oil, which has saturated fats from the egg yolk, but also has plenty of protein and the olive oil provides the mono and polyunsaturated fats your body can easily process!  So suit up and get ready for a baller status breakfast burrito!



  • 1 Egg (preferably brown organic)
  • 1 Handful or about a 1/2 Cup – Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla
  • 1/3-1/2 Cup Baby Spinach
  • 1 Tbsp Cholula
  • 1 Cup Day Old Chili (I gets better the second day)
  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil



  1. Microwave your cup of chili
  2. Microwave your tortilla for 7 seconds
  3. Spread a layer of chili on the tortilla
  4. Sprinkle the cheese on the chili
  5. Top with spinach and Cholula
  6. Heat a pan to medium high heat
  7. Add 1tsp Olive Oil
  8. Crack in 1 egg
  9. Cook sunny side up, medium hard (so the yolk is only slightly runny and the whites have set)
  10. Roll it up and enjoy with your morning coffee!



  • 1lb 99% Lean Ground Turkey
  • 2x 8oz Cans – Black Beans
  • 3x 8oz Cans – Hunts Tomato Sauce (Basil & Oregano)
  • 1pkg McCormick’s Chili Mix
  • 1/2 Bottle Cholula
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • Black Pepper to Taste



  1. Heat pan to medium high heat
  2. Mince the onion and bell pepper, not too finely though
  3. Add turkey, onions, and bell pepper
  4. Brown for 5 minutes until most turkey is browned
  5. Add the tomato sauce, Cholula, and the beans
  6. Season with Black Pepper (about 1tbsp)
  7. Bring to a boil for 7-10 minutes, until all ingredients have had a chance to combine flavors
  8. Then lower to a simmer and continue cooking for 30 minutes
  9. Remove from heat and serve


Once again, I’d like to thank Will for sharing this awesome recipe, and I’m really happy to be sharing it with all of you!  I’m a huge fan of breakfast burritos, they’re what I exemplify for a portable breakfast.  When you think of an egg sandwich with a fried egg, as soon as you hit the yolk it spills and drips and usually gets on your clothing if you’re not careful, but when inside a burrito, it usually pours out on to all the other ingredients enhancing all of the flavors.  (sorry burrito love tangent)  *looks around to see if anyone was actually listening to the rambling*

. . . Soooo, try this!  Now!  And tell me what you think!  Will told me what he thought with some obscene expletives, and it was phenomenal!  So I want to hear what you all think about breakfast burrito goodness!
