It's been forever since I last posted, yeah yeah. Well, I'm back :-) Quick update:
- Bought a house
- House has amazing kitchen
- I can't stop COOKING!!!
Onto the recipe. I was trying to figure out what to make for breakfast, and my brain was foggy. My brain usually is foggy on Sunday mornings. I think it might have something to do with the little bit of a lot of wine I tend to drink on Saturdays. Oops.
Bomb Ass Breakfast Burritos
4 whole wheat tortillas
5 slices turkey bacon, cooked according to package directions
1 tsp vegetable oil
2 T Valle del Sol chili powder (or just regular chili powder)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp pepper
2 T skim milk
4 - 5 medium sized baby red potatoes
1/4 cup green peppers, diced
1/4 cup sweet yellow onion, chopped
1/2 medium sized jalapeno pepper, seeds and white membrane removed, finely chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup shredded colby jack cheese
Light sour cream (optional)
Srircha (optional, but HIGHLY reccommended!)
OK, this is easy peasy. Boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes, until they are soft. While those boil away, cook the turkey bacon according to the package directions (throw them in a pan and cook at medium heat about 3 minutes per side, until crispy). Set aside on a papertowel-lined plate to cool.
Drain the potatoes and set aside to cool slightly. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, and whisk until blended. Then, quarter the potatoes into small bite-sized pieces. Add the oil to a deep frying pan and turn on medium high heat. Add the onions, green peppers and potatoes. Season with the salt, pepper and chili powder, and let cook undisturbed for a good 10 minutes.
Scramble the eggs for one minute over medium heat in the pan you used for the bacon. Then, add the jalapeno and green onions and finish cooking until just set. Remove from heat.
Flip the potato & veggie mixture, they should be browning nicely but not burnt! If they are getting too brown, turn down the heat. Slice the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Try to resist eating it. Add the bacon to the eggs and mix together.
Warm the tortillas according to the package directions. Place each on a plate, and add a sprinkle of cheese. Then add about 2 tablespoons of the egg mixture, and 2 tablespoons of the potatoes & veggies. Serve open-faced with the srircha and sour cream on the side!
Seriously, SO good! Perfect
