Chicken Fajita Breakfast Burritos

Chicken Fajita Breakfast Burritos #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com

So, we all know that basically my entire goal in life is to fit as many tacos and as much guacamole and salsa in my day as possible, right?

If I don’t have Mexican for at least one of the three meals, things, as my daughter likes to say, get ugly.

I need my spicy flavors and they are never better than first thing in the morning! You drink coffee to wake you up, I slather my food in salsa and guac.

Y’all have probably noticed that I’ve been working with Davidson’s Saftest Choice Eggs over the past year to bring you recipes using their fabulous pasteurized eggs. Remember the cookie dough pudding pops? And the egg nog french toast? What about the snack mix cookies? Basically, I’ve been using eggs in all kinds of delicious ways, but I never shared with you an egg recipe featuring eggs in all of their simple scrambled glory.

I love scrambled eggs. I especially love scrambled eggs that have been mixed with chicken, bell peppers, and onions, layered in a tortilla spread with guacamole, rolled up tight, and served with a side of salsa. Breakfast nirvana, you guys.

Now, if you’re wondering what’s so special about Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs, let me remind you! Basically, the name says it all…they’re the safest choice egg you can buy! The eggs are gently pasteurized in an all-natural water bath to eliminate the risk of salmonella. You’re free to eat these eggs raw if you want, which means that you are free to gorge on cookie dough this holiday season.
