2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add eggs to pan. Cook, without stirring, until mixture sets on bottom. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form curds. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until egg is thickened but still moist. Remove from pan immediately.

4. Spoon 2 tablespoons bean mixture, 2 1/2 tablespoons egg, 2 tablespoons Fresh Salsa, and 1 tablespoon cheese down center of each tortilla. Roll up. Recoat skillet with cooking spray. Place burritos in pan, and cook over medium heat 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
