Expert Tips
  • You control the spice level of your burritos. Feel free to leave the peppers out if you prefer your breakfast burritos to be less spicy.
  • To prevent soggy burritos, make sure that the filling is room temperature before rolling the burritos and roll them tightly to keep out moisture.
  • Breakfast burritos will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.
