A smaller cousin of the breakfast burrito, the breakfast taco made with reduced-fat Cheddar and egg substitute is a satisfying and healthy breakfast option.

"An Alaskan neighbor at our fish site would use similar ingredients, sometimes adding homestyle potatoes, sausage, or bacon. He would make them by the dozen, then freeze to serve later or share with fellow fisherman as he drove up the...

Leave the fake ingredients alone. Instead (2) white corn tortillas 100 cal, one scrambled egg divided 78 cal and 2tbs Arriba Roasted Red Salsa 20 cal is better and all natural. At 253 cal, 50 cal less that fake cheese and egg beaters.

Enjoy- Eat smart, eat real, eat right, oh, and exercise- Duane


Add Soy Chorizo! yummy!


Hey! Some of us are gluten-intolerant; we HAVE to use CORN tortillas - and you could use more egg whites than yolks to reduce calories and up the protein...I will try this for breakfast tomorrow as I am tired of eating toast from gluten-free bread.

A tiny bit of sliced avocado would also add some good fats to this item...


I made this yesterday and they're really good. To save on more calories you can scramble two egg whites and only one yolk. :D


Sounds like a great basic recipe....I personally prefer flour tortillas because they are just easier for me...........and I buy the Mission brand carb balance (100ish calories and 11g. fiber) for my breakfast burritos.......or I change it up with Thomas' whole grain English muffins for about the same calorie and fiber count. I just basically make an omelet and put it on whatever 'platform' I am in the mood for. I am not a breakfast food lover at I have made myself eat breakfast by finding something interesting and flavor filled for awhile now........whatever recipe I find, I add my own touches(garlic for sure) and try to make it flavorful(bell peppers, onion.... which are basically calorie free), spicy, full of fiber (albeit late in the day, more like brunch after coffee) My (kindergarten) daughter likes her cold lunch sandwiches (PB&J) on the same tortillas, or on the new (to me) Albert's brand flat breads which are also high fiber and low calorie....and they are also great for making personal pizzas for supper or weekend lunches!! My kids are wonderful fruit and veggie eaters, but when I can get in the extra foods they love (pizza) I am all for it. No one recipe is perfect for all...use it as a stepping stone for your own inventive creation......but don't forget to add (or subtract!!!) your alterations.
