I recently had a breakfast burrito in Los Angeles at an INCREDIBLE coffee shop called Alfred Coffee + Kitchen, but the burrito itself came from The Rooster Food Truck. I ordered something named the 'Rico Suave' which had eggs, bacon, tater tots, avocado and a cheddar & cotija cheese blend. Yes, tater tots. TATER TOTS IN A BURRITO. If you've never experienced the splendor of tater tots in a burrito, you should really (bonus points if you can name what children's book that line comes from). Now that I'm back in the land of bagels and deli egg sandwiches (which there is NOTHING wrong with), I know I need to make my own Rico Suaves at home. And I do.
I really do.
Here's how I do it:
Fry up a few pieces of bacon in a pan until crispy. Remove and wipe out most of the grease. In the same pan, add some tater tots (you don't even have to thaw them out) and fry until golden. I like to smash them once they're soft enough which will help them crisp up. Remove from pan. Add your scrambled eggs (I always add cream to my eggs) and softly scramble. Remove. Layer your burrito with shredded cheddar, crumbled cotija, eggs, bacon, tots, and avocado. Fold and then lightly grill in the same pan until the tortilla becomes lightly golden. Serve with your favorite hot sauce!
