These whole wheat breakfast burritos have everything you need for a well balanced breakfast. Feel free to double, triple or quadruple this recipe to feed the whole family! My kids wrap these in tin foil & take them to go. You could also add hot peppers or any salsa you choose if you like a little spice! Whole grains, like those in these whole wheat tortillas are much higher in vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants than refined or “white” grains. Studies have shown that eating more whole grains may help with weight management and reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced tomato
2 tablespoons shredded pepper jack cheese

Add sliced green onion, and diced bell pepper to the hot pan and cook until soft, about 2-3 minutes.
Add the beaten eggs and diced tomato to the skillet and stir together to scramble as the eggs set.
Once eggs are completely scrambled, top with cheese and cilantro. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let sit 30 seconds for the cheese to melt.
Wrap the tortilla between 2 sheets of paper towels and microwave 20-30 seconds to warm. Transfer the finished egg mixture to the warmed tortilla and roll up to serve.
