Expert Tips

Prepare these burritos with colorful, flavored tortillas such as garden vegetable or tomato-basil. Look for them in the deli, bakery or dairy case in the grocery store.

To reduce the fat in each serving of these burritos by about 8 grams and the cholesterol by about 320 grams, use refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product. Thaw the frozen egg product before using it.

For spicy burritos, season the egg mixture with 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne).
