Make Ahead Southwest Breakfast Burritos
Would you like to know a little something about me? As much as I absolutely love to cook, and even to occasionally make elaborate meals, I hate cooking breakfast. First thing in the morning, digging out pots and pans, spending time pulling together ingredients, not to mention all the clean-up. No thank you! Therefore, we either have a super easy breakfast (smoothies), a slow cooker breakfast, or when I actually have my act together, then we have easy heat-up breakfast that I made ahead of time and have ready to go in my fridge or freezer, just like these Make Ahead Southwest Breakfast Burritos!
And anything that starts with crispy tater tots and ends with tasty pepper jack cheese has to be good, right? These are really so easy and can be customized to your families taste.
For maximum flavor impact I chose to brown up some breakfast sausage and scramble some eggs. Then just to make myself feel even better about the whole thing, I sautéed up a few bell peppers to get some veggies going in there for a balanced meal.
Assemble it all in the middle of a big flour tortilla and roll up tight. Wrap in plastic wrap or foil and then you can stick these in the fridge for a couple days or right into the freezer. I love it that my teenager can grab one right out of the freezer and heat it up and be out the door in no time, and I don’t get left with a huge mess to clean up in the aftermath. Especially because I prefer to get my dinner started in the slow cooker in the mornings… so who wants to worry about breakfast?!
