California Avocado Breakfast Burrito


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.

1/2 cup Diced red bell pepper

1/3 cup chopped onion

  3. Meanwhile beat together eggs and salt.
  4. When vegetables are done, pour egg into pan; gently stir in avocado.
  5. Cook, over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until soft curds form, about 3 minutes.
  6. Put 1/4 of the egg mixture down the center of one warmed tortilla; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese.
  7. Fold in top and bottom of each tortilla.
  8. Roll up from side.
  9. Repeat with each tortilla.
  10. Garnish each burrito with a dollop of sour cream and a spoonful of salsa.
