I got this recipe from Harvesters’ Nutrition Department. This is a recipe that Jeremiah and I had originally planned to make for the week of the SNAP Challenge. We had to pass because it was too much for our budget. That’s too bad because they are healthy and super filling.
1 T. canola oil
1 medium bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
2 medium russet potatoes, diced
8 eggs, beaten
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
8 (10 inch) whole wheat lower sodium tortillas
1 c. low fat Cheddar cheese, shredded (4 oz.)
Mix all ingredients to make pico de gallo.
In a large skillet, heat oil. Add pepper, onion, and potatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 8 minutes).
Spread potato mixture to the edge of the skillet and cook eggs in the middle.
Spread egg mixture into tortillas. Top with cheese and pico. Roll up like a burrito.

- Nutrition says this recipe serves 8 at a cost of $1.35 per serving. I was able to make 12 burritos by using a smaller tortilla. Plus, we had a little pico de gallo left for homemade tortilla chips.
- I omitted the jalapeno from the pico.
- I froze some of the burritos. If you do this, please add more seasoning to your eggs/potato mixture.
- We used a high fiber tortilla shell.
