Ready for brunch

I love a good brunch, it is one of my favorite meals to cook and to create recipes for! This weekend while making eggs for the bf and I, one of my new favorites was created. I've always loved breakfast burritos (esp. the ones from McDonald's) so I finally came up with my own version.

Breakfast Burritos
4 eggs
splash of milk
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies drained very well
1 onion minced
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 green or red pepper minced (optional)
1/2 to 1 cup of American cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp. Emeril's Essence, Italian seasoning
3-4 slices of bacon chopped (OR you could add some ham or sausage)
1 package of tortillas

You will need two (2) nonstick skillets for this recipe. In the first one add the chopped bacon, ham or sausage and allow to cook. In the second one heat some butter mixed with olive oil. Add the onion and allow to soften. Add the diced tomatoes with green chilies, garlic, and green pepper. Cook for a bit and then reduce the heat to low. In a bowl crack the eggs add the seasonings and a splash of milk. Whisk well and add the egg mixture to the skillet. Scramble the eggs with the veggies. Add the cheese and allow to melt and cook with the eggs.

Meanwhile, warm the tortillas in the microwave. When the eggs are almost cooked, add the bacon, ham or sausage. Mix into the egg mixture.

Fill the warmed tortillas with the egg mixture and roll up like a burrito. Serve with sour cream, salsa, additional cheese, hash browns and guacamole if you'd like.

This looks like a great recipe. Probably a lot less fattening than the fast food ones.
