Healthy Breakfast Burrito

A breakfast burrito is a great alternative for breakfast. Somehow you can have the very same ingredients lying on a plate, and it’s just not the same as eating them in a burrito. This recipe is our very own Amber Stott’s!

Yield: 4 breakfast burritos

Healthy Breakfast Burrito


4 flour tortillas
1 cup prepared chili
1 cup shredded cheese
4 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
8 Tablespoons salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place a flour tortilla on each of 4 oven-proof plates. Top each tortilla with 1/4 cup chili and 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Set aside.
  3. Crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Add buttermilk and whisk gently with a fork.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into a lightly greased nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Scraping the sides and bottom of the pan frequently, scramble the eggs for about 6-8 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness.
  5. Place a quarter of the scrambled eggs inside each burrito. Top with 2 Tablespoons salsa. Roll each burrito to close.
  6. Place in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Serve.
