Spinach & Pepper Jack Egg Tortilla Breakfast Burrito Recipe With Salsa

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? I'm making it tomorrow! This breakfast burrito recipe features an easy-to-make egg “tortilla” that is stuffed with spinach, pepper jack cheese (or any cheese you’d like!) and salsa. So healthy and delicious!

To secure the shape of your burrito, wrap aluminum foil around the bottom half of the tortilla after stuffing. Genius. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 to 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 to 25 minutes
Servings: 2



  • 2 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons whole flax seeds


  • 4 ounces shredded reduced-fat pepper jack cheese
  • 2 cups baby spinach, loosely chopped


  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the tortilla. Heat a small skillet over medium high heat, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet, and swirl to evenly distribute the eggs on the surface, forming a thin, tortilla- or crepe-like shape. Cook for a couple of minutes until the edges and bottom of the tortilla are firm. Tilt the skillet from side to side to make sure eggs are no longer runny. Gently loosen the tortilla from the surface with a spatula and carefully flip. Continue to cook until eggs are fully set. Repeat with the other half of the tortilla mixture. Set tortillas aside when finished.
  2. Lightly grease the same skillet and sauté the spinach 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted, over low to medium-high heat. When done, remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  4. Place tortilla on a large plate. Add half of the spinach, cheese and salsa to the middle, and then roll into a burrito. Serve immediately.
