HOW DO YOU MAKE SOUTHWEST BREAKFAST BURRITOS?
- Combine 12 eggs and 2 Tbsp. half & half in a large mixing bowl. Whisk well; set aside.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add 6 pieces chopped bacon and cook until browned. Drain grease.
- Add 1 c. chopped peppers and cook until tender-crisp.
- Pour egg mixture into the same pan; cook until scrambled.
- Stir in 1 c. shredded cheese. Remove from heat.
- Divide scrambled egg mixture evenly among 8 (8 inch) tortillas.
- Prepare creamy chipotle sauce by mixing 1/2 c. mayo, 1 Tbsp. adobo sauce, 1 tsp. honey, 1/4 tsp. chili powder, and 1/4 tsp. cumin.
- Spoon 1/2 Tbsp. sauce on top of egg mixture; fold tortillas to close.
- Wrap in wax paper and store in refrigerator or freezer.
- Heat in the microwave.
HOW DO YOU STORE BREAKFAST BURRITOS?
Breakfast Burritos can easily be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Simply wrap folded breakfast burritos in wax paper and store in a large ziploc bag or other airtight container.
HOW DO YOU RE-HEAT BREAKFAST BURRITOS?
These Southwest Breakfast Burritos can be re-heated right in the wax paper. From the refrigerator, reheat for 30 seconds. From the freezer, reheat for 1-2 minutes or until completely thawed. To re-heat burritos in the oven, remove the wax paper and heat in a 350° oven.
So. I have a confession to make. We literally haven’t even started shopping for school supplies.
Yes, school does start in less than two weeks. And yes, my kids have been badgering me about it for weeks now. The truth is…school supply shopping is one of my least favorite activities. So I tend to put it off…as long as I possibly can.
The good news? We may not have any school supplies, but we’re all set with back to school breakfasts.
It’s all about priorities….right?
There’s no question that having quick and easy breakfast options is key for back to school success. Some of our favorites? Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, Breakfast Egg Muffins, and Superfood Apple Blueberry Muffins.
And even though we’ve never tried them, I feel like my kids would absolutely love all these ideas for Overnight Oats.
But our new favorite, by far? These seriously delicious Southwest Breakfast Burritos. Loaded with scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon, peppers, and the most delicious creamy chipotle sauce, they’re everything you could ever want in a breakfast burrito.
The first time I made these Southwest Breakfast Burritos my kids went crazy for them….and as soon as I tried them I understood why.
