Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup diced red, orange, yellow and green bell peppers, diced onions, diced tomatoes, and sliced mushrooms, sautéed in butter
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 1/3 cups scrambled eggs
  • 6-8 flour tortillas
  • Salt and pepper
  • butter
  • salsa

Instructions
 

  • Sauté about 2 tbsp. sliced mushrooms, 1 tbsp. onions, 1 tbsp. diced tomatoes, 1 tbsp. red bell pepper, 1 tbsp. orange bell pepper, 1 tbsp. green bell pepper and 1 tbsp. yellow bell pepper in a tablespoon or two of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook about 5 minutes or so until veggies are tender.
  • Place cooked veggies in a bowl.
  • Meanwhile, scramble about 3 large eggs.
  • Season eggs with salt and pepper while scrambling.
  • (You can also use additional seasonings like parsley, chives, cilantro or thyme).
  • Add cheese and scrambled eggs to mixing bowl.
  • Microwave tortillas for about 30 seconds until hot and moist.
  • Place about 1/3 cup of mixture down the center of a warm tortilla leaving a one-inch border at top and bottom of tortilla.
  • Fold bottom of tortilla up toward center and hold in place with one hand.
  • Fold one side over to the middle of the tortilla and then roll tortilla over.
  • Tuck in the remaining loose ends into the tortilla.
  • Microwave in paper towels or in waxed paper that’s been sprayed with cooking spray for about 30 seconds.
  • Serve hot with salsa.

Notes

NOTE: You must heat the tortillas in the microwave so they are moist while rolling or they will tear.
 
NOTE: These amounts are a guide only. Use more or less of what you prefer.
 
NOTE: You will need to spray the waxed paper with cooking spray before you place your burrito on the paper and wrap it up. This will prevent the tortilla shell from sticking to the paper after the intense heat from the microwave.
 
OTHER OPTIONS: You may also want to try diced zucchini, yellow squash, fresh spinach, finely shredded carrots, avocado and sprouts as possible options for Veggie Breakfast Burritos.
