 California Avocado Breakfast Burrito

Burritos have become as American as chocolate chip cookies and this version, filled with sumptuous California Avocado, bell pepper, and spicy cheese, makes a savory, quick-to-fix choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Good source of Vitamin A, Calcium and Iron. Excellent source of Vitamin C.

  (11-in. diameter) flour tortillas
1/2  cup  Diced red bell pepper
1/2  cup  Diced green bell pepper
1/3  cup  Chopped onion
Tbsp.  Butter
1/4  tsp.  Salt
1/2  cup  shredded low-fat pepper jack cheese
  ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and diced
  As needed  sour cream for garnish

  3. Meanwhile beat together eggs and salt.
  4. When vegetables are done, pour egg into pan; gently stir in avocado.
  5. Cook, over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until soft curds form, about 3 minutes.
  6. Put 1/4 of the egg mixture down the center of one warmed tortilla; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese.
  7. Fold in top and bottom of each tortilla.
  8. Roll up from side.
  9. Repeat with each tortilla.
  10. Garnish each burrito with a dollop of sour cream and a spoonful of salsa.
