Southwest Breakfast Pockets
I came up with this after the birth of my second son. The two are only 17 months apart, so I needed meals that were fast, delicious and kept us fueled all morning. This easy breakfast recipe can be a great lunch or even dinner, too. —Koleen O'Malley-Ellingson, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
