This is my new go-to breakfast on a weekday. I like to chop up a scallion (and sometimes a shallot too) and saute that a bit before adding the salsa. If you make this with egg beaters, it's not as awesome, but super-healthy!

I cut up some extra onion and some bell pepper as well since I had some on hand and added it to the salsa. After the eggs were made I spread sour cream on a soft tortilla and made a wrap. It was VERY good. I'm not a huge fan of eggs, but these tasted awesome. I will make this again for sure.

Recovering from a THR so I was looking for something simple & yummy, this was it. I sauteed some hash browns first and took them out of the pan. Then reduced the salsa, added the potatoes back in with the eggs & monterey jack cheese. Super, and DH absolutely loved it. Loved the salsa trick, will be making this again. Thanks Heather.
