no real complaints. It's simple which is great, but it's not going to surprise you in any way. It's basically scrambled eggs with some corn, beans and tomato. Fairly obvious. That's not to say this isn't a really nice, healthy, and simple way to have breakfast on the weekend. I'll likely make again as the baseline for another recipe. Would be great with some mole.

Could easily prepare the salsa the night before and have these for a quick breakfast. Serving size is impossibly small; my teenager required a whole burrito and my poor husband looked so sad when I had to split ours (he'll get over it). I might add some diced avocado next time. Really good.

This is really very tasty for a meal that came together so quickly. The amounts of cilantro and jalapeno were spot on, providing flavor an heat without overwhelming. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines:

This was really simple and delicious!! We had it on corn tortillas which don't have any hydrogenated vegetable oils like flour tortilla do. It was a hit with everyone in our family!
