Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Breakfast Recipe from Restaurant

Although I own a traditional American-style restaurant, this Breakfast Burrito Recipe and several others have been on the restaurant menu for many years due to influences from the Southwest and Mexico.

These international influences have created a wonderful variety of food choices for all of us. I am grateful for the diversity. And this is a meatless burrito recipe for when the need or desire warrants.

Preparation time: 10 minutes. Serves: 1.


  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons each of butter and peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 4 ounces diced potatoes
  • 2 ounces green chilies, drained
  • Your favorite cheese and/or diced tomatoes (optional)
  • 2-3 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Salsa, if desired



  • Warm the tortilla in a large skillet over low heat
  • Heat butter and oil over low heat in a 7-8 inch egg pan
  • While the pan is heating, beat the eggs in a small bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • When the fat in the egg pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the potatoes and cook until they are beginning to brown
  • Add the green chilies, stir and pour in the eggs
  • Let sit on the heat until the eggs begin to cook around the edges and stir occasionally with a rubber spatula until eggs are cooked but still soft and moist
  • Salt and pepper if desired
  • Place the mixture on the lower third of the warm tortilla
  • Fold up the bottom of the tortilla over the filling, fold in sides and roll up tightly

Slide onto plate and serve with salsa
