"I created this recipe because I needed an easy, satisfying breakfast. Use as much ground red pepper as you want depending on how hot and spicy you like your food. Add a spinach salad with tomatoes and avocados, and this dish is transformed into a wonderful lunch." —Heather Demeritte, Scottsdale, Ariz.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 burrito)
