The breakfast burrito has magical powers. And I'm not the only one who thinks so. In her post "In Praise of the Breakfast Burrito," Kris at Cheap Healthy Good poses scenario after scenario -- from the morning rush to the morning after -- which can only be solved by the goodness of eggs wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.
A burrito has all the qualities I like in a breakfast: It's quick, savory, customizable and can be made healthy or less-than-healthy depending on your mood. I like them with leftover veggies and tofu scramble. I like them with avocado and cheese. I like them with chorizo once in a while, and I wouldn't kick a Tater Tot off my tortilla. But the best is just scrambled eggs, cilantro, and Papalote salsa. Then I do the burrito dance.
