5 burritos


  • 1 teaspoon salted butter, or to taste

  • 5 banana peppers, chopped

  • 3 red chile peppers, chopped

  • 1 medium tomato, diced

  • ½ medium onion, diced

  • ½ cup cooked ground beef

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 large eggs

  • 5 (8 inch) flour tortillas

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste

  • ¼ cup sour cream, or to taste


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; stir in banana peppers, chile peppers, tomato, and onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add cooked beef, salt, and pepper; stir until heated through, about 1 minute.

  2. Whisk eggs together in a bowl. Pour into the skillet with the vegetable mixture; cook and stir until eggs are set, about 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, warm tortillas, one at a time, in a dry skillet over low heat.

  4. Place a medium scoop of the egg mixture on each tortilla. Add cheese and roll up, leaving one end open. Add a small dollop of sour cream to each bite, if desired.

Cook's Note:

For red chile peppers, I use tabasco peppers.
