Hello /nom/. I've been making breakfast burritos recently. What I like to do is bake some potato, onion, and bell pepper, and mix all that up with about a dozen scrambled eggs. Then I take ten tortillas, add some cheese, and put it all together. The end product is ten days worth of breakfast burritos. Combine that with some fruit and yogurt and you have a healthy full breakfast.

My question is, how can I make the burritos more delicious? Right now the ingredient that does the heavy lifting in these burritos is the cheese. Without that, these poor things would probably be pretty bland. Thanks for any advice, mangs.

>pic related is the feeling of me eating one of my burritos

Hot sauce and sour cream

Oh also chorizo because I see you've got no meat in there

Yeah I was debating on whether or not I should cook up a little bit of sausage to mix with the eggs, but I honestly feel kind of bad killing so many animals, dude. Chorizo does sound good though.

For dinner I eat a rice cooker meal (throw some rice, vegetables, seasonings into the rice cooker) each night, and I like to put chicken breast in there. So every night, I see that chicken breast, and I know I've contributed to the death of at least one chicken. I don't have too much a problem with eating animals, just I want to kill fewer of them.

OP add pickled pimentos. It gives the scramble spacks of red color and a nice tangy flavor. A few of those, a little cream in the eggs as you whisk them together, and breakfast sausage make a fine burrito. OFC cheese and tortilla but that's neither here nor there. (Couldn't imagine using a corn tortilla for a breakfast burrito though, unless huevos rancheros)

Maybe we shouldn't blow off the cheese, what type are you using, OP? I usually have a mix of colbyjack and sharp cheddar, less of the cheddar though or it becomes a greasy mess.

My gf thinks it's gross but some black olives would make that shit dank. Consider adding other pepper as well, like jalapeno, serrano, or habanero

If you're adding olives you have to smother the burrito in a sauce and put them on top

Add some garlic when you throw in the eggs. Don't forget to salt the food either.

not even close, lol

Anyway, a 10 day old burrito is going to suck no matter what. 10 day old eggs are going to suck no matter what. 10 day old potatoes are going to suck no matter what. If you want your burritos to taste better, eat them fresh. If that isn't an option, keep some things on hand you can add fresh, like avocado and salsa or at least some lettuce and tomato.

I don't know what you like to eat, so I can't really help you out beyond that. I mean, most burritos have beans in them.

May I suggest soyrizo? I'm not a veggie, but it's all I use now since it tastes the same and isn't made from garbage animal parts. Also mushrooms will add that savory edge you may be missing.

If you don't use soyrizo spice your eggs with s+p, nutmeg, dried basil and/or sage. Splash of cream if you're feeling fancy.

Spread mayo on the tortillas. Crystal Louisiana Hot Sauce is king. All flavor, more chiles than vinegar, and somehow the heat is very tolerable.

I would say pretty close. Closer than any drive thru breakfast burrito. Great reduction in sodium, fat, and probably even calories. OP is using whole and natural ingredients for the most part. He personally prepared his own food, instead of a minimum wage slave who has become complacent over sanitation/food safety. You didn't help at all, you're being a dick, and acting like you're the one eating OP's food. Try some constructive criticism:
"Yikes OP! 10 day old breakfast burritos? Doesn't sound very delish. I hope you are freezing them. Not as good as fresh! But second best!"

I helped as much as you did. Sorry I hurt your feelings, though.

Even if we take your claim of "healthier than drive thru breakfast burrito" as true, it still does not make it "healthy". There's a large gap between the two, and you don't know how OP cooked the food or where the ingredients come from.

>complacent over sanitation/food safety
It's ironic you say this, given OP is eating 10 day old food.

Please school us in the art of healthy eating so that we may take better control of our lives. How would you make a healthy breakfast burrito based of of eggs, cheese, potatoes, onion, and peppers?? That's what this board should be about. Instead of shooting people down for the sake of showing your superiority.

To me it looks like OP is making an attempt at "meal prepping", and the fact that he is asking people for advice, shows me someone who isn't complacent. Just maybe a bit naive if he is not freezing for long term storage.

In my experience soyrizo is one of the more expensive and less delicious brands of sounds based chorizo. My local store stopped stocking other brands though so it suffices

bit of an oxymoron, innit? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not really. Just put healthy stuff in a tortilla. Like spinach, grains, broccoli, avocado and so on

Could you give me more information on the rice cooker meal?
I've just been given one and have never really cooked before but want to give it a go.
