Welcome Incredible members and honored guests.
Mother and Child Reunion Scrambled Egg Burrito (serves two)
4 eggs, lightly whipped with a fork
4 8" warmed tortillas
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons sour cream
½ cup of diced or shredded cooked chicken
½ cup of shredded cheese-Cheddar, Swiss, or Monterey Jack
2 tablespoons salsa
2 tablespoons chopped olives
¼ cup diced tomato
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
Eggs truly are incredible. Not only are they an affordable source of protein, but they are also quick to cook and versatile. I could just as easily make this recipe with shredded pork or beef or diced ham and it would be equally tasty. I chose chicken for the obvious Paul Simon song tie-in.
The key to this quick meal which can be served any time of day is to have everything prepared ahead. Heat the butter and oil in a sauté pan, pour in the eggs, chicken and cheese. Scramble-stirring frequently until they are light and fluffy. Divide the mixture into fourths and put it on the tortillas. Add any of the optional add-ins and a dollop of sour cream. Roll up each burrito and serve while still hot. Make sure you have plenty of napkins to catch any drips.
