Breakfast Burritos

Yummy! I have no other words to describe this dish. We love Breakfast Burritos in our home because they're so quick to prepare and are the perfect protein-packed breakfast after a long night's sleep (if we're lucky enough to get one these days).

I always assumed that as my kids got older they would sleep through the night and that I, in turn, would get more sleep. Well, my kids are great sleepers, but I don't get to bed early enough to take advantage of it. As a result I am consistently sluggish in the morning, too tired to put any effort into breakfast. I've made Oatmeal in the Crock Pot so much lately, mornings are like Groundhog's Day for my kids.

Thank goodness too for leftovers because on the mornings I open my fridge to find containers of rice and beans, I know there are yet more effortless ways to deal with breakfast. I just take everything out -- which on any given day might include cheese, avocado, tomatoes, and of course scrambled eggs -- let the kids scoop whatever they want into their quesadillas, and voila, in minutes we've got an energy packed breakfast to get us moving when we need it most!

I love watching Kenya's little hands grabbing the tortilla-wrapped egg, bean and salsa filling as it drips out onto his plate. I can't say this is the neatest meal to consume, but it sure is delicious and, trust me, every bite will ultimately wind up in your little ones mouth!

    It's a burraco! If you have some, try adding sausage, especially Spanish or Portuguese chorizo, not the Mexican kind. It mixes well with the eggs and sour cream.
