Bacon-Green Chili Breakfast Burritos

Bacon-Green Chili Breakfast Burritos

I spent the past week trying to get back into the routine of life after my fabulous trip to San Francisco.  I haven’t cooked much this week as a result, but I did make these breakfast burritos  - a recipe that I am always adjusting and trying to perfect.  I would love to hear what you add to your breakfast burritos and what you do to make them extra delicious!  I really would have loved to smothered these with spicy green chili but I didn’t have any on hand this time.  So, chopped green chilies mixed into the filling had to suffice for now.   This makes 4 breakfast burritos, but you could always adjust to serve more if needed.  Enjoy!

2-3 cups frozen hash browns  
4 flour tortillas
5 slices cooked bacon- crumbled
3 roasted green chilies, chopped
4 eggs, slightly beaten
Shredded cheese - Mexican blend (1-2 cups)
Cholula sauce
                                                             Salt and pepper to taste

Spread out hash browns on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt to taste when they are soft and cooked.  While the hash browns are cooking, sauté green chilies in a large pan in a little olive oil over medium low heat for about 5 minutes or until soft. 

Push the chilies over to one side of the pan.  Add a little salt and pepper to the eggs and then add the eggs to the same pan, cooking the eggs on medium heat.  When the eggs are set and no longer runny, mix in the green chilies with the eggs. 
Add the potatoes to the egg and green chili mixture
Add the crumbled bacon to the mix and stir to mix the ingredients evenly.

Build each burrito one by one.  Place one tortilla on a plate, sprinkle with shredded cheese (as much as you like- I like alot) and then spoon about 2-3 large spoonfuls of the filling mixture onto the middle.  Next, douse the filling on your burrito with a generous amount of Cholula. 

I heat each tortilla with filling on top in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds so that it is easier to roll up.  After the burrito is rolled, I put it back into the microwave for 20-30 seconds to melt everything together.  All that’s left to do is pour more tortilla over the top and enjoy! 
Sour cream is always good on top or mixed in with the filling too.
