  • 6 slices bacon, halved crosswise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 10 ounce box frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 8 inches flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 7 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain; reserve the fat in a measuring cup.

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and 1 tablespoon chipotles.

In the skillet, heat 1 tablespoon reserved bacon fat over medium heat. Add the corn and bell pepper and cook until just heated through, 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the remaining 1/2 tablespoon chipotles and the cilantro. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel, then heat 2 tablespoons reserved bacon fat over medium heat. Beat the eggs, season with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Scramble until the eggs are just set, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Place a tortilla on a work surface and sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese across the center. Top with one-quarter of the scrambled eggs, a dollop of the sour-cream mixture and 3 bacon pieces, pressing gently to flatten. Roll up burrito-style. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, cheese, eggs, sour-cream mixture and bacon pieces.

Halve each burrito crosswise and serve with the Tex-Mex salad.
