Tailgate Breakfast Burritos

I love the cool, crisp morning air that awakens us on Saturday mornings to cheer on our favorite teams (Go Green! Go White!). I believe I have some good experience with tailgating, and I know that the day needs to start with a good, hearty meal. These breakfast burritos are the perfect combination of protein, carbs and fat and they can keep you energized for the day ahead. They're perfectly portable and if you're traveling a bit far, simply throw the foil-wrapped burritos on the grill for 5 minutes to re-heat. Cheers!




1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp. Drain on paper towels.


2. Add onion and peppers to the pan and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Add diced potato and cook 1 minute longer. Season with salt and pepper.


3. Reduce heat to medium. Add beaten eggs and cook until fully scrambled, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.


4. Turn heat off and stir in green chiles, black beans, jalapeños and cooked bacon.


5. Scoop filling onto the center of each tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Roll up burrito-style and wrap each burrito in foil until ready to serve.
