Breakfast Burritos

We are still in survival mode with the colds, and I've not accomplished much this week.  The chorizo in the refrigerator was needing to be made into breakfast burritos, and I wasn't getting it done.  This morning my sweet husband began browning it, and we assembled the triple batch (or most of them) together before he went to bed.  Have I mentioned how much I love my husband?

Here's the recipe

12 eggs

2 TBS butter

1 lb Chorizo (Mexican Sausage–not the stuff in the tube, but stuff that looks more like ground beef).

1/3 cup salsa

3 cups shredded Cheddar/Monterey Jack cheeses mixed.

24 small flour tortillas


Brown the chorizo in large skillet and remove it to a big bowl.

Don't bother washing the skillet yet, use it to melt the butter.  While melts, beat the eggs, and add them to the skillet, along with the salsa .  Stir it frequently while it cooks, keep stirring and  cooking until scrambeled and set.


Dump the egg/salsa mixture in the bowl with the chorizo, then add the cheese.  Gently mix the whole mess together.


Warm tortillas as directed on the package.  (Makes it easier to make nice neat burrito bundles without the tortilla cracking.) Place about 1/4 cup mixture on each tortilla and roll into burittos.  That's it except for packing it up for storage! 


Wrap each buritto individually in foil, then put them in the freezer. 


To serve: Thaw burritos in refrigerator overnight, then bake (still wrapped in foil) 350 degrees for 15-30 minutes or until hot.


Serve with salsa and sourcream for dipping. Yum!

Sundays are usually our “special breakfast” day.  I bulk cook muffins, or Craisin Almond bread as well as the burritos, and when the freezer is full of all three we alternate.  (They are a nice change from our hot cereals, etc, but not any extra work–less actually–on day of serving.  PERFECT for Sunday mornings!)  The past few weeks, however the freezer was depleted of these special treats.  I'm sure the children will be glad to resume our Sunday breakfast tradition. 


Today we did the above recipe x3, so there should be enough to get us through the holidays!  Next week maybe I'll do Craisin Almond bread!  MMMM!
