Yield: 10 servings

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs
  • pepper, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, scrubbed with clean vegetable brush under running water, diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, scrubbed with clean vegetable brush under running water, diced
  • 10 whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salsa (optional)

Directions:

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Break eggs into a medium-sized bowl. Wash hands with soap and water after cracking raw eggs. Season with pepper and salt as desired. Whisk the eggs with a whisk or fork until combined.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil. Add onion and green pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add eggs to the green pepper mixture and use a spatula to scramble until cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Place a tortilla on a plate, add scrambled egg mixture. Top with a sprinkle of cheese and salsa, if desired.
  6. Make burrito by folding two sides in and then rolling. Continue to assemble additional burritos using the same process.
  7. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
  8. To freeze burritos for later, place burritos in the refrigerator until cooled. When cooled, tightly wrap each burrito in tin foil and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  9. To reheat, unwrap and place burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high 2-3 minutes, flipping it every minute. Let cool slightly before eating.
