"Good recipe"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2012

"These were so yummy and I was surprised at the decent portion size. I used a whole grain tortilla instead and wrapped it up like a burrito. This will be part of my regular b-fast rotation."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 29, 2011

"i cooked the eggs separately from the peppers and onions. this was a kind of fall apart meal. it was amazingly tasty. so next time, i might serve pita wedges on the side or something. really great flavors, will make again!"
