Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 20 minutes, Serves: 4 


4 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

6 eggs
2 Tbsp water
1 to 2 tsp Tabasco sauce (or adjust to taste)
1 1/2 cups grated mild Cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

4 (10 inch in diameter) flour tortillas

Make the egg mixture
Add the eggs, water, tabasco sauce and cheese in a bowl and beat well. Set aside.

Prepare the burrto filling
In a saucepan over high heat add the vegetable oil and bring to a heat. Add the cooked potatoes and the red bell pepper and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the green onions and cook for 2 minutes more.

Add the egg, tabasco and cheese mixture to the poratoes and bell pepper and cook while stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes, until the eggs are cooked. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Heat the tortillas
While the filling is being cooked, heat the tortillas in the oven or microwave. If using a microwave, put the tortillas in a plastic bag and heat at maximum setting for 20 - 30 seconds. If using the oven, wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and bake for 10 minutes at 350 F (180 C).
