Most people don’t often think about beans for breakfast. When they do, they may just think of a plate of the “English Breakfast”, canned baked beans slapped on a plate next to some eggs, sausage and toast. For us, that’s a pass.
But, to say beans can’t be a part of a delicious and appealing breakfast is just plain wrong! In fact, beans are a great option for breakfast. Beans are nutritious and a great source for protein, which are both important facts for breakfast food, which can tend to be very sugary or artificial.
They are of course also delicious, especially when combined with Southwestern and Mexican flavors. Give beans for breakfast a chance, and start with these recipes which are Randall Beans original recipes!
In fact, these breakfast bean recipes might make these beans the most important bean of your day!
This breakfast bean casserole stacks up eggs, sausage (or chorizo), cheese, peppers, herbs and Randall Pinto Beans in between layers of tortillas.

All in all, you can whip this bean casserole together in just about an hour, making it a great dish for Saturday or Sunday brunches with friends and family.
To save some time, you can also prepare part of the recipe (steps 1 through 5) ahead of time and keep it in the fridge overnight. That way, all you have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning.
Huevos rancheros is a breakfast-time classic. Fried eggs laid atop fresh, crispy tortillas served with zesty salsa and avocado slices (or guacamole, if you prefer) all on a base of pinto beans which can easily be made with Randall Beans pinto beans.
The heartiness of the beans. The zestiness of the salsa and lime. The creaminess of the avocado. The runny eggs. The crunchiness of the tortilla. These components work so well off each other. It’s almost the perfect breakfast dish! Try it with some home fries and breakfast meat like bacon, sausage or chorizo on the side.
