Fat Loss Recipe Of The Week
Breakfast Tortilla Roll-Ups
Get all the great flavor of huevos rancheros – the Southwestern breakfast favorite – without all the fat and calories. A spicy, high-protein way to start out your day – ole!
You will need:
4 large eggs
4 egg whites
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 scallions, chopped
1 plum tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped, fresh cilantro
Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
4 (six-inch) fat-free flour tortillas (choose whole-wheat if available)
Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick vegetable spray and set over medium-high heat.
Add the bell pepper and cook until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
Add the scallions and tomato; saute until softened, about 1 minute. Transfer the vegetables to a plate.
Beat the eggs, egg whites, salt, and pepper sauce together in a medium bowl.
Spray the skillet with more nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the egg mixture and cook, stirring as needed, until the eggs are scrambled but not dry.
Remove from the heat and gently toss the eggs with the sauteed vegetables.
Heat the tortillas according to the package directions.
Fill the tortillas by spooning 1/4 of the egg-vegetable mixture along the botom edge of each tortilla; sprinkle with some cheese and cilantro.
Roll up the tortillas tightly, then cut them in half and serve. (4 servings)
Can’t take the heat? Reduce the hot pepper sauce to 1/4 teaspoon.
