Last week I posted a recipe for an amazing pork green chili. Now just in case you are thinking it’s summertime and too hot for chili, just let me remind you there are other things you can do with chili beyond eating it out of a bowl. Welcome to Casa de April, where I make a breakfast burrito I would pay for in a restaurant. Green chili is the key that takes it from ordinary to incredible. So make the chili, which freezes beautifully by the way, freeze in small batches to bring out for breakfast! And although I say breakfast, I would eat this for any meal of the day.
Smothered Breakfast Burrito
For each burrito:
1 small/medium potato
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup green chili (or more!)
Heat chili in a saucepan or microwave until hot. Set aside and keep warm. Poke potatoes and microwave for a few minutes until fork tender. Dice or chop potatoes. Beat eggs in a bowl with a pinch of salt & pepper. Warm tortillas in the oven or microwave (if I’m doing a bunch I wrap them in foil and stick them in the oven while I’m making everything else; if it’s just one I nuke it).
Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add a drizzle of oil or butter and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan (or you can use cooking spray). Add potato and cook for a couple of minutes, until starting to brown a bit. Add eggs and scramble with the potatoes. Sprinkle in the cheese, toss with the other ingredients and remove from heat.
Wrap in a tortilla and top with chili and avocado.
