Ingredients:

For the veggies:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 medium red or yellow onion, diced

  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced into 1⁄2 inch cubes 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder

  • Salt & pepper to taste

For the eggs:

  • 8 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

For the burritos:

 

  • 4 burrito-sized whole wheat tortillas

  • 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • Optional: 1 avocado, sliced

  • Hot sauce, if desired

Instructions:

  • Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat and add in garlic, onion, sweet potato, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, cumin, chili powder and salt and pepper; stir together to coat the veggies with the spices, then cover and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are fork tender.

  • Remove from heat once done cooking.

  • While veggies are cooking you can make your scrambled eggs. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium low heat.

  • Add in eggs and cook, folding every 30 seconds or so until the eggs are fluffy, then remove from heat and set aside.

  • To assemble the burritos: Lay out the tortillas and evenly distribute the eggs and veggies. Add 2 tablespoons cheese and 1⁄4 avocado to each burrito (if using). You can also add hot sauce or a little salsa if you’d like. Tuck ends in, then roll up burritos.

  • To warm up: Place on baking sheet in oven at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes or simply microwave them for a minute or two. Serve with sour cream, greek yogurt, salsa, or hot sauce.
