This easy breakfast burritos recipe is a great way to start your day.
Filled with eggs, ham and vegetables they have all the food groups in one easy to hold burrito. Great for those of us on the run, or whose kids don’t want to stop for breakfast.
Just wrap it up and let them grab it to go.
As always, you can change this recipe to suit your taste. Don’t like peppers? Leave them out. Leave out the ham to make this a vegetarian burrito recipe.
If you really want to amp up the Mexican flavors, use a bit of chopped chorizo sausage instead of the ham. Be aware though that the spicy fat that comes out of the sausage will make the eggs a bit pink colored.
To add even more nutrition to these tortilla wraps, add sliced avocado to the top of the egg mixture before you wrap them. Delicious and nutritious.
Don’t think of these egg burritos as just a breakfast idea. Kids and adults alike will love them for lunch or an easy weeknight dinner recipe.
