To fork or not to fork…that is the question. When it comes to eggs for breakfast, you usually don’t have a choice in utensils unless you use the regional favorite, hands-on alternative: the beloved tortilla! And, if you’re going that direction, you might as well go all the way and spice it up with Southwestern goodness. These handy forkless meals are filling and fun. The spicy chorizo balances well with the fresh pop of cilantro but it’s the warm and tangy salsa beans that put this breakfast over the top. After you finish your burritos, inevitably you’ll find a few pieces of goodness escaped the tortilla and ended up on the plate so you might just decide to use the fork after all! Here’s how you make them. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
