"After seeing these made at the Taste of Home Cooking School in Orlando, I had to make them for my youngest son. He loves just about anything in a tortilla and this recipe was no exception! I used red pepper because I find green pepper to be bitter. I also cooked bacon and cut it up adding to the mixture for even more flavor. I did add salt and pepper as seasonings too, only because I always season my eggs. We had them the morning I made them and have not tried them after being frozen but they will make a great quick, hearty breakfast on school mornings next week. As a Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor, I highly recommend this recipe. A great choice for a brunch buffet too.

Suggestion: Don't overfill the tortillas. Doing so will make it difficult to roll up the burritos."
