Back in the ‘80s and early ‘90s there was a fabulous restaurant in Denver called the Mocha Café. I loved going there for breakfast or brunch, and my favorite dish was their green chile burrito. I decided to create my own, healthy version of this delectable egg dish. It comes together in minutes, so no need to wait for the weekend to indulge!
Green Chile Breakfast Burrito
4 turkey sausage links
2 to 4 green onions (depending on size)
6 egg whites
1 can green chile enchilada sauce (or 1 1/2 cups home-made if you have it)
2 flour tortillas
1/2 cup grated cheddar –jack cheese
Slice the sausage and place in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook until beginning to brown. Chop the green onions and add to the sausage. Cook until onions begin to soften and sausage is fully browned. Add egg whites and cook, stirring occasionally, until fully cooked.
While the eggs are cooking, place the green chile sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil, stirring occasionally.
Microwave tortillas for 10 to 15 seconds, just until warm. Divide egg mixture evenly between tortillas and roll up. Place burrito seam side down on a dinner plate. Top with generous amount of green chile sauce; sprinkle with grated cheese and freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.
