Smoked Salmon Breakfast Burrito

The cream cheese and salmon in these wraps make for decadent breakfast burritos. If you're in the mood for meat, you could easily substitute bacon or sausage for the fish.

CAMP TIP: To warm big tortillas, roll them up, then wrap in foil and heat directly over the stove, turning often.
