  • 4 ounces sausage ham or bacon, cut in small pieces
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 1/4 green pepper diced or little bit of a spicy pepper, minced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 large tortillas OR 4 small tortillas (corn or flour)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa


  • Sauté the meat, onion, pepper and tomatoes over medium-high heat until the meat is done (if using bacon, cook it partially before adding the other items).
  • Add the eggs and cook to your preferred doneness. At the same time, heat a dry skillet over high heat. When hot, heat the tortillas one at a time by placing them in the skillet for about 15 seconds per side (they will get a few light brown spots on them – if they have any black spots, heat the rest a few seconds less).
  • Place a hot tortilla on a plate, add half the egg mix, half the cheese and a bit of salsa and roll the tortilla up. If you use a large tortilla, you can first fold the bottom up about one-quarter of the way, then roll it. If you use small tortillas, make four burritos with one-quarter of the ingredients on each.


Keto/LCHF: Put cooked egg mixture in a cup or bowl; do not use tortilla. 6g carb per serving. Use less salsa to reduce carb count further.
Gluten-free: Either totally omit tortillas as for keto version, above, or use gluten-free corn tortillas.
Dairy-free: Omit cheese.
Vegetarian: Leave out the meat.
