I started making this burrito years ago. Not many people I know enjoy spinach but when I make this they eat it up. I love this for breakfast or anytime. They never last long in my house. Enjoy.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This breakfast burrito recipe is not only easy to throw together, it's delicious! The cheeses add a savory flavor, while the pepper flakes and salsa add a big kick. The eggs turn out perfectly creamy. Filling and hearty, this breakfast burrito is great for breakfast or brunch. So good!

Ingredients

1 pkg
frozen spinach,thawed, drained
3 Tbsp
butter, adjust as needed
6 large
eggs
1/2 c
Parmesan cheese grated, to taste.
2 pinch
hot pepper flakes, to taste
8 oz
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pkg
large burrito shells
1 jar(s)
chucky mexican salsa
1 jar(s)
taco sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Thaw spinach, squeeze out excess water. I wrap mine in paper towel and squeeze it.
2
Melt butter (or whatever you would like to cook your eggs in) in a pan.
3
Mix up your eggs in a bowl to a smooth consistency.
4
Pour the eggs in the pan and scramble them up until light and fluffy.
5
Add in the spinach, shredded cheese. Add about a 1/2 cup of chunky salsa, pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix.
6
Heat until the cheese melts and spinach is warm. Set aside.
7
Warm your tortilla shells in the microwave briefly. Just to make them pliable and easy to roll.
8
Fill them with the egg and spinach mix. Depending on the size of the shell, fill them as you would a burrito or soft taco. Leaving room to roll the shell.
9
Put taco sauce on top and place back in the microwave to heat.

Note: I did not have any chunky salsa for my pic of this but the smooth works just as well. Enjoy.

Any leftovers can be wrapped in Saran Wrap placed in a zip bag. Ready to heat and eat or eat cold.
