Chimichurri Breakfast Burritos

This post may include external or affiliate links. Please see our affiliate disclaimer.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for savory, potato-based breakfast dishes. Hashbrowns, hot skillets, and burritos are my consistent go-tos on any brunch menu. Knowing this, it was only a matter of time before I tried creating my own “restaurant-style” breakfast recipe during quarantine. These extra filling breakfast burritos are packed with irresistible crispy red potatoes, scrambled eggs, black beans, and sweet chimicurri sauce. While chomping down on this dish, I couldn’t help but smile at their delicious texture and taste. They are absolutely to-die-for! This recipe was inspired by one of our favorite local breweries, Half Acre. They make the best burritos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We have missed them so much during the pandemic and can’t wait to return to their restaurant when things get back to normal.

While these burritos might be a little bit more fuss than you are looking to make, I want to assure you that they are totally worth it and they come together easily in the kitchen!

  • 2 lbs red potatoes cubed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • 15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 burrito tortillas


Chimichurri Sauce

  • 1 shallot sliced
  • 1 Fresno chile sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp oregano leaves
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil


  • Place red potatoes in a medium bowl. Cover with water and rest for 10 minutes.
  • Combine chimichurri sauce ingredients in a blender. Blend until shallot, chile, and garlic cloves are minced. Set aside.
  • Drain potatoes and dry using a clean kitchen towel. Return to the bowl. Add olive oil, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  • Place in an air fryer (or bake) at 400°F for 20-25 minutes. Toss potatoes every 10 minutes or so to prevent burning.
  • Meanwhile, crack eggs into a medium bowl. Whisk egg yolks. Transfer eggs to a large non-stick pan. Cook eggs over medium-low heat while using a spatula to scramble the eggs. Sprinkle in cheddar and jack cheeses, as well as black beans. Mix well.
  • Layer burrito tortillas with potatoes, egg mixture, Chimichurri sauce, and garnishes. Enjoy!
