Breakfast Burritos


  • 4 large eggs

  • 3 tablespoons salsa
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas, warmed


  1. Break eggs into a small bowl, add the milk, salt and pepper and beat with a fork until egg yolks and whites are combined and the milk is well blended.
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-low heat until warmed.
  3. Pour in the egg mixture, and use a metal spatula or spoon to gently lift and fold the mixture until eggs are almost set.
