Spicy Egg Wrap

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but sometimes I want something with some extra kick. That’s when I make my quick and easy egg wrap. Though I typically make it for breakfast, I’ve been known to whip this up for a speedy family dinner too.

 

 
Choosing Your Ingredients

  • Eggs:  Choose large white or brown eggs. If you need to bulk up egg, add 1 to 2 egg whites in order to keep cholesterol in check.
  • Tortilla: Choose a 6 or 8-inch whole wheat tortilla. Larger than that, the calories will start to go above 200 per tortilla.
  • Cheese: Look for cheese with fewer than 5 grams of fat per serving. If you’re on a heart healthy diet and want to reduce the cholesterol and saturated fat, soy versions are available.
  • Salsa: Processed tomatoes have a ton of the antioxidant lycopene. Choose mild versions for the kids.

 
Spicy Egg Wrap

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 large egg
Dash black pepper
Cooking spray

1 (8-inch) whole wheat tortilla
1 slice light cheese (like cheddar, edam, mozzarella)
2 tablespoons hot salsa

Directions:
Place whole wheat tortilla on a plate.

Heat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.  In a small bowl, beat the eggs and pepper. Pour egg mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, lift and fold eggs until thickened and no visible liquid from the eggs remain. Remove from heat and place in the center of the tortilla.

Top egg with 1 slice cheese and 2 tablespoons salsa. Fold and enjoy!

Breakfast burritos or spicy egg wraps as you call them are delicious. When I was in the fire department we made them quite often, but with many more ingredients. You know how firefighter love to eat!

One thing I learned from a fellow firefighter is that chopped up chives, the green part of the green onion scrambled in with the eggs and then melted cheese on top…..scrumptious flavor!
