  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 oz cooked bacon, ham or sausage
  • 1/2 c pepper jack cheese, or your favorite cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions, raw
  • 1/4 c sauteed onions
  • 1/4 c sauteed mushrooms
  • 1/2 c jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp guacamole
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cilantro
  • 1/4 c diced tomato


  1. Saute onions in olive oil for two minutes then add mushrooms, salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and Cheyenne pepper and saute for about another 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  2. Cook bacon, sausage or ham if needed and set aside.

  3. Scramble the eggs and set aside.

  4. Heat the tortillas by either wrapping them in some foil and placing them over a fire or heat source. Alternatively, you can place them in a clean dry frying pan and heat for about 30 seconds on each side. If you have an oven you can wrap in foil and place in a warm oven. Do not over heat them.

  5. Take one tortilla and place some of the eggs in the middle.

  6. Add meat on top of the eggs.

  7. Add the sauteed onions and mushrooms on top of the meat.

  8. Add some pepper jack cheese to taste.

  9. Fold the tortilla by folding in the sides about a quarter ways to the center. Fold the side closest to you over the side folds while scooping the ingredients into the tortilla.

  10. Repeat with remaining tortilla.

  11. Wrap in foil and place over low heat for about 5 minutes or until reheated. Alternatively, you can heat a frying pan to medium low and add some non-stick spray. Place the burritos in the pan and brown on each side.

  12. Unwrap and place on a plate.

  13. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on while the tortilla is still hot.

  14. Add salsa, guacamole, and sour cream as desired.

  15. Sprinkle with diced tomato, green onion and cilantro before serving.

Recipe Notes

Be sure to use a heated tortilla. You can pan fry the assembled burrito or heat up the tortilla before you build it. A heated tortilla always tastes better.
