Breakfast burritos are a fast and easy meal that are fun and ensure that we all get a good dose of protein in the morning. Add the flexibility of using up some of my leftovers and skipping on the not-so-good for you drive-through version and I'm sold. For more recipes, head on over to Audrey’s!
Classic Breakfast Burritos
Prep Time
4 Minutes
Cook Time
6 Minutes
Total Time
10 Minutes
2 medium tortilla wraps 1/4 cup of chorizo sausage, sliced thin
1/4 cup of orange or red peppers, chopped very small 3 large eggs
2 tablespoons of Smokey Chipotle Salsa or your favorite type 1/2 - 1 cup grated Monterrey Jack cheese
Salt and pepper Cayenne and/or Smoked Chilli Powder
Heat a medium sized pan on medium/high.
Add the sausage and chopped peppers to the hot pan and brown slightly.
Add your eggs and whisk rapidly, combining egg, sausage and peppers. Turn heat to medium and cook until eggs set but aren't dry. Turn down heat if needed.
Add salsa and stir to combine. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne/chilli to taste. Turn off heat, add cheese and combine.
Take out another pan and heat at medium/high, or move egg mixture to a plate and wipe pan with a paper towel. Add a tortilla to the hot dry pan, add half the egg mixture. Fold tortilla into a little package with seam facing down. The heat will stabilize your burrito.
Repeat with second tortilla. Flip once tortilla is slightly golden and toast other side.
These taste great warm or at room temperature. Serve with salsa or sour cream. If you have black beans or other favorites, such as corn, sliced jalapenos or tomatillos - feel free to add them as well. Enjoy!
