Marie's Breakfast Burrito

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.

How to Make Marie's Breakfast Burrito


  • 1Thaw spinach, squeeze out excess water. I wrap mine in paper towel and squeeze it.
  • 2Melt butter (or whatever you would like to cook your eggs in) in a pan.
  • 3Mix up your eggs in a bowl to a smooth consistency.
  • 4Pour the eggs in the pan and scramble them up until light and fluffy.
  • 5Add in the spinach, shredded cheese. Add about a 1/2 cup of chunky salsa, pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix.
  • 6Heat until the cheese melts and spinach is warm. Set aside.
  • 7Warm your tortilla shells in the microwave briefly. Just to make them pliable and easy to roll.
  • 8Fill 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.
  • 9Put taco sauce on top and place back in the microwave to heat.
  • 10Note: I did not have any chunky salsa for my pic of this but the smooth works just as well. Enjoy.
  • 11Any leftovers can be wrapped in Saran Wrap placed in a zip bag. Ready to heat and eat or eat cold.
