A very good recipe. I made this for 7 hungry people and they all agreed that is was wonderful. I cook the bacon ahead and freeze it until I need it, and that came in handy when you are in a hurry. All of the flavors are good together and it is a very filling breakfast. Thanks for sharing this one. I will be making it again.

Hmm, I make scrambled egg burritos, served with salsa, sour cream and hot peppers, but never thought about adding all this other stuff -- and it sounds wonderful. I'm adding this to my cookbook and I'll be back to let you know how we like it!
