I had been to the farmers market last week and had gotten some fresh, homegrown tomatoes and peppers. I was thinking that I needed Roma tomatoes to put into the eggs because they do not have as much water as other tomatoes. But, then I remembered that you could take the seeds out of the tomatoes and what is left is more firm. I had some green onions and bacon and had picked up some tortillas yesterday so I was set.
I could have kept adding things to this dish. I thought spinach would have been good, and/or cilantro, leeks, potatoes, canadaian bacon, ham, sausage....the ideas are limitless. My husband does not like a lot of cheese but I think it would have been good to add some grated cheddar or monterrey jack cheese before you roll the burrito up.
I have seen people use water and milk to help make their scrambled eggs fluffy...I say use whatever you have in the fridge. If you have skim milk or 2%, you have the best of both worlds. I used 2% milk because that was what I had but I have even used water before and it make the eggs fluffy and so light.
I also had some fresh peaches from the farmers market and blueberries from a local farm and kiwis, so I added those to the plate to serve as a contrast to the savory main dish. Perfection! It filled us up and gave us lots of great vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from all the fresh ingredients, as well!
A little hint for warming your tortillas is to lay about 3-4 in a damp paper towel, roll them up, and place in the microwave for about 20 seconds. They come out soft and warm!
What a perfect way to impress your guests! Hope you get to make some soon!

Break your eggs into a large bowl, add the milk and whisk until blended well.

Spoon into a flour tortilla and roll into a burrito and serve!
