Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast Burritos are the perfect start to any morning filled with potatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms, breakfast sausage and spinach.

        Breakfast Burritos are always a staple in our house. 
With Superbowl fast approaching can you think of a better way to start your morning?
What could be better then eggs, meat and potatoes with some hidden spinach or kale and mushrooms, avocado,  greek yogurt and salsa wrapped in a tortilla shell?
If you ask me nothing! 
We love the flavor combination of the Mango Salsa, it adds a wonderful slightly sweet flavor that goes fabulously with sausage or bacon! 
This is defiantly a go to meal when we go camping or when we need something we can take with us in the car!
Kid tested and Mother approved!

At this point push all the veggies over to one side of the pan and add sausage or bacon if using. Cook meat until cooked through. Mix sausage with veggies. Season with sea salt, pepper, granulated garlic, cumin and chili powder, mix until combined.

Stir in spinach or kale and cook for  1 minute or until just barely wilted. Cook a little longer if using kale until wilted.

If your skillet is large enough push the sausage veggie mixture over to the edge, other wise remove from pan. Add 1 tablespoon butter, wait until butter melts and add eggs. Let eggs set for about 45 seconds and then scrape the bottom of the pan to scramble the eggs. Continue to scramble the eggs until cooked through.

Combine the eggs with the veggie mixture and your ready to fill you tortilla shells! 
Choose your topping of choice! 
We like avocado, cheese and greek yogurt along with a favorite salsa!

Pico De Gallo is another favorite topping for Breakfast Burritos. You can't go wrong here!
