  • Serves: 4; 1 tortilla per serving
  • Cooking Time: Start to Finish: 11 minutes


Description

Try this when you’re in a hurry but want a “stick to your ribs” breakfast…with Mexican flair!

Ingredients

1 teaspoon canola or corn oil
1 1/2 cups egg substitute
4 medium green onions, chopped
4 6-inch corn tortillas
1/4 cup picante sauce (lowest sodium available)
1 medium tomato, diced (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) shredded low-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1 medium lime, quartered

Cooking Instructions

In a medium nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the egg substitute and green onions for 1 minute, stirring constantly. (A rubber scraper works well for this.) Remove from the heat.

Warm the tortillas using the package directions.

Spoon the egg mixture over each tortilla. In the order listed, top each serving with the picante sauce, tomato, Cheddar, and cilantro. Let each person squeeze lime over his or her scramble. Serve open-face.
