Healthy toaster oven burrito


There are so many good things I can say about this burrito. First and foremost, it’s super healthy and packed full of foods that we should all be eating. Side note, I’ve been watching “The Food Hospital” on Cooking Channel, and it’s really making me think more about the things I am eating. I think that might have been what inspired this recipe. Second, this recipe literally takes 5 minutes to throw together (maybe less) and then another 5 minutes to bake. Third, it’s a toaster oven recipe, and therefore, requires very little cleanup. It also happens to be delicious.


1 medium flour tortilla

2 pieces of smoked salmon torn into small pieces

1/4 cup of canned black beans drained and rinsed

1/4 cup fresh tomatoes diced

a few slices of red onion

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese



1. Preheat toaster over to 450 degrees

2. Layer the smoked salmon, the tomatoes, the black beans, red onions and cheese in that order on top of the tortilla.

3. Bake the tortilla for about 5 minutes at 450 degrees. Then turn the broiler on and bake for 1-2 more minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and the edges of the tortilla are golden brown

4. Top with guacamole or sour cream and enjoy!

    I’ve never even heard of Food Hospital. Is it a cable show?

    Hi, yes, it’s a new cable show. It’s on the cooking channel, at 9 on Monday evenings (EST). It’s a really great show.
