These breakfast burritos are an awesome brunch addition. I like that I can make all the components beforehand and then throw them in the oven. By the time people get here, they are hot and delicious! Further, you're not up at six in the morning planning for your company. The more sleep I can have on any given day, the better. Except for last Friday. John ribbed me for getting up at 5 to watch the wedding, but it was truly magnificent, right?
Anyway, these burritos are just about perfect but you can feel free to jazz them up the way you'd like. I have put sauteed peppers in them, or shredded chicken from baked chicken the night before! When I made these for the video, it was in the afternoon. I made 4 or 5 of them, and by the time my taping was done and video was edited, three were gone (two thanks to John!). I promise you the smell alone will wake up even the most sleep-deprived teenager :)
Santa Fe Breakfast Burritos
1 chorizo link (about 4 ounces)
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Philadelphia Cooking Creme (Santa Fe Blend)
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons salsa
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
Remove the chorizo from its casing. In a medium greased skillet, cook the chorizo, until browned on all sides. Reserve the drippings and transfer the chorizo into a bowl. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. To the bowl, add 1/2 cup of cooking creme, milk, and eggs. Mix well. Add the egg mixture to the drippings in the skillet. Cook for 8-10 minutes on low, until the eggs are fully cooked. Scoop 1/4 of the egg mixture into each tortilla. Combine salsa and remaining cooking creme. Spoon over the egg mixture. Grate 2 tablespoons of cheese on top and then roll up the tortillas. Place the tortillas in a greased baking pan and bake for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
These are literally so easy but so tasty! It's amazing the kind of flavors you get with the cooking creme. If you don't want to buy the cooking creme, substitute 2 parts sour cream to 1 part chunky salsa and you will have a similar, though not exact, flavor.
Until the next time my oven is on...
