imageThis is such a neat and simple idea for a breakfast variation that doesnt harm the waist line.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs, or equivalent egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Dash of coarsely ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray

  • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas, heated
  • 4 tablespoons chopped seeded tomato, divided
  • 2 tablespoons bottled chunky salsa, divided

Preparation

1. Whisk the first 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a medium bowl.

2. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and melt butter over medium heat. Add the egg mixture, and stir with a heatproof rubber spatula to scramble.

4. Roll up burrito-style (fold bottom up and sides to center). Repeat with remaining ingredients.
