From EatingWell:  EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals (2011)

These breakfast burritos, stuffed with potatoes, scallions, scrambled eggs and cheese, are a great way to start the day when you have time to sit down to a real meal. They also make a fabulous easy dinner. Add a side of black beans and some corn sautéed with chiles and lime juice, and you have breakfast for dinner, south-of-the-border style.

4 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes and 1/3 cup scallions and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomato and chiles and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Beat eggs, egg whites and cayenne with a fork in a small bowl. Push the vegetables away from the center of the pan and pour in the egg mixture. Cook, stirring the eggs with a wooden spoon, until some curds have formed but the mixture is still creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and stir the eggs and vegetables together.
  3. Divide the egg mixture among warm tortillas and roll each one into a burrito. Top each with a spoonful of salsa, a little cheese and some of the remaining chopped scallions. Serve immediately.
