Calories 350 kcal


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
  • ½ medium onion chopped
  • ½ bell pepper any color, chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • Your favorite toppings: salsa sour cream, hot sauce, avocado – the sky’s the limit!


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the vegetables. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 10-15 seconds each to make them soft and pliable.
  • To assemble the burritos: place a tortilla on a flat surface. Spoon a generous amount of the scrambled egg mixture into the center of the tortilla. Top with cheese and your favorite toppings.
  • Fold in the sides of the tortilla, then fold the bottom up and roll to form a burrito. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • For a crispy exterior, you can grill the burritos in a skillet over medium heat for 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Make it your own: Get creative with fillings: try adding cooked breakfast sausage, crumbled bacon, spinach, or mushrooms for endless possibilities.
  • Make-ahead: These burritos are awesome for meal prep. Prepare them in advance, wrap them individually in foil, and freeze for up to a month. Reheat in the oven or microwave.
  • Spice it up: Add a pinch of chili powder or cayenne pepper to the eggs for a little kick.
