Breakfast Burritos

Why spend money at the "drive-thru" window when you can make these at home?


8 eggs
2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped*
1 Tbsp butter
6 Slices processed cheddar cheese
6 Large flour tortillas
2 Ontario greenhouse tomatoes, seeded and cubed
Hot pepper sauce, salt, pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro leaves



  • Beat together eggs, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Stir in jalapeno peppers.
  • Melt butter in medium, non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until large, soft, moist curds form and no visible liquid egg remains.
  • For each burrito, place one cheese slice on the bottom third of the tortilla. Top with the egg mixture, cubed tomato and cilantro. Roll up tortilla and tuck ends under.
  • Place on microwave-safe plate and microwave one at a time at HIGH for 1 minute or until hot. Serve with additional hot sauce. Makes 6 servings.


NOTE: Instead of using a microwave, place burritos on a baking sheet and bake at 350º F for 10 minutes or until hot. *1/3 cup of chopped Ontario greenhouse peppers can be substituted for jalapeno peppers if desired.
