Breakfast Burritos in a Snap

My wife brought home a ton of tortillas, so I have been whipping these up for the family. So easy to make, but thought I would do up a quick post to serve as a meal idea. I am a salsa lover, so these also serve as a great salsa delivery mechanism 🙂 Pictured is some spicy tomato and pepper salad, which I use as part of the filling — no need for extra chopping, and rounds out the taste.
