Servings 4 persons


  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 2-3 tsp oil or butter use as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 oz grated cheese Cheddar, pepepr jack, or mix blend
  • 4 large flour tortillas


  • Crack eggs into a large bowl and whisk, chop peppers and onion, and grate cheese.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil or butter. Sauté peppers and onion until tender. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. When ready transfer to a large bowl.
  • Return pan to heat and add a little more oil or butter to coat the pan.
  • Heat a pan to medium heat, add eggs, and scramble until cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer eggs to veggie bowl and gently fold/mix together.
  • For easy burrito assembly warm each tortilla in the microwave for 20 seconds to steam it before filling/rolling. They're much easier to fold once warmed.
  • Arrange a scoop of eggs with veggies on warmed tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and fold.
  • Place seam-side down and repeat for remaining tortillas.
  • Bring a pan to medium heat with a little oil to prevent sticking. Once the pan is hot, add the burritos, seam side down and cook for about 3 minutes per side or until burritos are hot in the center and lightly crisp on the outside. Serve with sour cream or salsa and enjoy.
