Chorizo and egg burritos

This is a great meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. They are so easy to make and taste great. For this, I use flour tortilla from the store rather then the usually fresh corn tortillas you can buy almost anywhere here is Tulum.

First remove the casing from the sausage. I love chorizo but any sausage can be used for this. Chorizo is great because it has a lot of flavor and spices but is not too hot for kids. I have used Italian sausage before and it had too much heat for the kids. I like to cut up the chorizo first because it makes it easier to break apart in the pan. If you want you can also add some onion to the pan with the chorizo Once the sausage is ready add some eggs. I usually use about 6 eggs (sometimes mixed before hand with a little milk, salt and pepper.)

Once the eggs are scrambled as hard as you like transfer them to a bowl. In the same saute pan heat through some re fried beans. (or make them yourself- they are really easy to make)

on a grill pan put a tortilla to heat through quickly then flip it over. Put a little cheese (I like cheddar- or the closest thing I can find to cheddar here but any cheese will work)

On a plate put the tortilla with cheese, a little beans, the eggs and chorizo and top with salsa. This is a very good, quick meal. Enjoy.

so much cholesterol! But a WONDERFUL Idea, I think I saw something like this using egg white as a sushi roll on Top Chef. Points for innovation!
