Cooking For Dummies: Breakfast Burritos

I’ve been picking up a new hobby lately- cooking. I’m pretty late in the game though as I guess most men & women learn how to cook at a pretty early age. On most days, I still have a hard time figuring out how to cook rice. But it’s been an interesting journey so far and I wanted to share a favorite dish of our which was surprisingly easy to make- the Breakfast Burrito.

I got this recipe of Pinterest and I thought that I would share it with all of you!

Tortilla Wrap Recipe

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (+ flour to coat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Mix flour, salt, water and oil in a big bowl.
  2. Place mixture on a floured surface and knead it around 10 times while adding bits of flour & water to the mixture until you’ve achieve a smooth dough.
  3. Leave mixture for a few minutes. (I suggest watching one of my VLOGS in the meantime!)
  4. Divide dough into 6-8 portions, depending on how thick/ big you want your wrap to be.
  5. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 7- in circle.
    note: I suggest adding flour every now and then to your floured surface to avoid it getting too sticky. Also, it’s a good idea to add flour to your rolling pin as well. If you don’t have a rolling pin, a large glass still works- but it will hurt!

Cooking your tortilla

  1. In a large skillet, add a small amount of cooking oil or lightly spray your skillet with oil. Cook tortilla for about a minute or until each side is slightly brown.

    note: I made my wraps a night before so I could sleep in in the morning. 

Breakfast Burrito Fillings

  • 6 eggs (1 for each wrap I was able to make)
  • 1/2 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 medium sized tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 large bell pepper (cut into thin slices)
  • A splash of milk
  • bacon
  • ketchup
    optional: ham or whatever meat you would want to add


  1. In a bowl mix eggs, a splash of milk and tomatoes. Add salt & pepper to the mixture and scramble. (You’re basically making an omelette). Set aside.
  2. In a pan under medium heat, saute onions and bell pepper in oil until onions become translucent. Then add egg mixture. Cook like you would any regular egg.
  3. Once eggs are done cooking, set that aside. In the same pan, cook bacon/ meat of your choice.


  1. Lay your tortilla wrap on a flat surface.
  2. Add a portion of eggs, followed by a thin layer of ketchup and your meat of choice.
  3. Wrap tortilla and secure tight by adding some ketchup to the ends.
  4. Place on white sheets with perfect lighting for an awesome instagram post. HAHA!

Seriously, if I can make this… then so can you!
