I have always been one to follow a recipe exactly and don't like to have to experiment when making food. However, through experience I am learning that most of the time when cooking there are so many ways to make a meal taste delicious and if you don't have all the ingredients, just improvise. That's exactly what I did when making these breakfast burritos. I pulled off all the veggies off my counter that needed to be used ASAP and grabbed things out of my refrigerator that would be good in a breakfast burrito.
The indigents included:
* Green peppers
* Green chilies
* Avocado (we had lots leftover from dinner that we needed to use up)
* Sausage (I bought a ton at Winco from $1/ pound- always check the meat that is reduced for quick sale)
* Hamburger (which was left over from tacos)
* Eggs (I used 1 1/2 dozen)
* Shredded Cheese
* Tortillas (I used 16)
* Hashbrowns/potatoes (I didn't use these, but I would next time)
The ingredients aren't that important. Just use what you have and what you like. For those who have a garden, this is a great way to use your garden vegetables.
1. Saute peppers, chilies, and onions. Cook meat. Combine sauteed vegetables and meat. Then add eggs. Scramble all together. Once the eggs are almost done, add tomatoes, cilantro, avocados, or any vegetable that doesn't need to be sauteed. When everything is cooked to perfection, add cheese. Let mixture cool completely. Scoop desired amount in tortillas. Wrap tortillas up into a burrito. Then wrap burritos in tin foil or saran wrap. Place in large freezer bags. Enjoy frozen breakfast burritos for days to come. You can place burritos in the oven or microwave. We cooked the frozen breakfast burrito in the microwave for 1 minute. They are a great on the go breakfast food.
