    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.

    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!

    This was absolutely amazing. I never would have thought to put these flavors together - and for breakfast!
