Burritos have become as American as chocolate chip cookies and this version, filled with sumptuous California Avocado, bell pepper, and spicy cheese, makes a savory, quick-to-fix choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Good source of Vitamin A, Calcium and Iron. Excellent source of Vitamin C.

diced green bell pepper
shredded low-fat pepper jack cheese
ripe, Fresh California Avocado seeded, peeled and diced
