In case Brunch Week wasn’t already enough of a party, not only was my 30th birthday yesterday but today is Cinco de Mayo. Obviously I had to make a brunch menu item that would be fitting for such a celebration and since I have already covered breakfast nachos, burritos, quesadillas, and tacos, it was time to go after the enchiladas. This decision was made even easier upon the bountiful arrival of Grimmway Farms veggies and Cabot Creamery cheeses which were cooked up with a fancy new Le Creuset saute spoon. The only difficult part of this recipe was packing all of that goodness into only 8 tortillas making them almost burrito sized. No one will be left hungry after this meal.

Vegetarian Breakfast Enchiladas 3

One year ago: Raspberry Tequila Sunrise

Three years ago: Dulce de Leche Brownies

Four years ago: Homemade Salsa


Serves 4


1 Tbsp olive oil

8 eggs

1/4 cup milk

1/2 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 bunch Grimmway Farms Cal-Organic rainbow chard, stems removed and chopped

1 bunch Grimmway Farms Cal-Organic kale, stems removed and chopped

10 oz. Grimmway Farms shredded carrots

2 (10 oz.) cans green enchilada sauce

1 (14 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 avocados, diced

1 (8 oz.) block Cabot sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

8 (8 inch) flour tortillas

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, milk, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the egg mixture and cook for another 5 minutes or until no longer runny. Stir in the chard, kale, carrots, and one can of enchilada sauce. Cover and let cook until greens are wilted, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the black beans (reserving 1/4 cup), 1 avocado, and all but 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  4. Add half of the second can of enchilada sauce to the bottom of the prepared pan. Place egg mixture into the center of each tortilla and roll, placing seam-side down in the dish (they will be super-stuffed with filling and cramped in the dish but squeeze them in there).
  5. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Top with leftover cheese and bake for 20 minutes or until bubbling and lightly brown on top.
  6. Garnish with remaining black beans, avocado, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
