Black Bean Roasted Pepper Frittata

Black Bean Roasted Pepper Frittata


8 large eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup salsa
1 tablespoon chipotles en adobo sauce (optional if you want it to be spicy)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced, white parts and green parts separated
1/2 cup chopped roasted peppers
1 cup torn arugula
1-15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro plus more for serving
Sliced avocado for serving
Crumbled Cotija cheese for serving

For pico de gallo
1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onions
1 jalapeno, minced
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salsa, chipotles en adobo sauce, salt and pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch non-stick ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Sauté the white parts of the scallions until they are translucent, about 1 minute.

Stir in the peppers and arugula, letting the greens wilt, about 2 minutes. Stir in the black beans and cilantro and reduce the heat to low.

Pour in the egg mixture. Wait for the eggs to start to set at the edges, about 2-4 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until just set in the middle.

While the frittata is baking, make the pico de gallo by combining the tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, lime juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Top the frittata with pico de gallo and sliced avocados. Sprinkle with cilantro and cotija cheese before serving.
