Green Chile & Pepper Jack Cheese Breakfast Burrito
- 8 tortillas get the carb balance version for 6g net carbs
- 12 eggs
- 1.5 cups heavy cream
- 8 slices Pepper Jack cheese
- 2 (4.5 oz) cans of Diced Green Chiles
- 16 oz sausage or chorizo
Heat the pan: add a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add: sausage to the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes stirring frequently, until completely cooked. Transfer to a plate to cool when done. You can multitask on the next step while this cooks.
Crack: eggs into a very large bowl and whisk with heavy cream until blended. Add some dashes of salt and pepper if you’d like!
Wipe: the same skillet you used with a paper towel to remove the browned bits but be careful since it’s hot. Spray the pan with nonstick spray.
Pour: enough eggs into fill the pan without pouring it too thickly. If you have a large 13-inch skillet, this will be about 12 eggs. Cook the scrambled eggs in batches until done. Stir the eggs continuously for 3-5 minutes or until cooked to your desired level. If you’re just making this one burrito flavor then you can mix the green chiles and sausage with the eggs all in one bowl. If you’re prepping multiple flavors then keep the eggs separate and add all ingredients to each burrito. Transfer to plate and let cool.
Cut: one 8×8 inch square per burrito out of aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Roll burritos: lay out all the tortillas on the foil squares. Tear each slice of cheese in half and line up on the two pieces down the center of each burrito. Add the egg mixture with green chiles and sausage. Roll the burritos then wrap with foil or parchment.
Freeze: add burritos to a gallon size bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave for 1 minute, then flip it over and heat for another minute. Heat for another 2 minutes if necessary.
