Quick and easy breakfast idea. I used a lean turkey sausage and a fresh pico. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Quick easy breakfast! I have made these when short on time before I go to work, and they definetly are better and cheaper than stopping at any fast food place for one of their breakfast burritos! I also use salsa instead of picante sauce, and have used a variety of different tortillas with this filling. Great, fast, and easy! :o)

Delicious and wonderful idea for cold fall mornings! I used the whole package (12 ounces) of Jimmy Dean sausage so our eggs had a bit more sausage in them. We also used salsa instead of the picante sauce and probably made about 5 big burritos. Thanks for sharing this keeper--we will definitely be having this again soon!
