Celebrate Taco Tuesdays first thing in the morning with this flavorful breakfast quesadilla recipe from Cookie and Kate. It combines eggs, pinto beans, jalapeno, and cheddar cheese placed into a whole grain tortilla. First, whisk eggs with hot sauce and add beans, and scramble the eggs right before they are set. Put aside and then assemble the quesadilla in a hot pan with cheese and other additions. Add the eggs to allow them to cook fully.
