Easy Peasy Low Carb Breakfast Burrito

While we usually prefer fresh veggies, I have to confess that we keep bags of frozen peppers and onions on hand all the time. They’re great for stir fries, burritos, casseroles and lots of other stuff. And they make these burritos so much easier because you don’t have any chopping to do!

I like mine with salsa; the hubs doesn’t. It’s good either way.

As for the low carb tortillas, we use La Banderita¬†(affiliate) brand. They’re readily available at our local grocery stores, and they’re honestly¬†really tasty. If you haven’t tried them yet, you should!
