Mini-pepper breakfast burrito

I think I have a new favorite vegetable–the mini-pepper.  Mini-peppers have the great taste of ripe sweet peppers but are little and cute.  Like a vegetable version of puppies and kittens!  

Mini-peppers

Mini-peppers must be easy to grow because you see them all over farmers markets — and the CSA boxes have been loaded!  Which was great when I got home… starving, for lunch the other day.  What could I cook… really fast?  

How about breakfast-for-lunch (or dinner)?  It’s one of my favorite “desperate Mom” meals.  

Sautee peppers and onion

I quickly sliced and fried a couple peppers and a little diced onion.  Then I scrambled two eggs and topped with cilantro, chopped tomato and a little pickled jalapeno (optional) from a jar. All wrapped it all up in a tortilla and ready in under 15 minutes. I didn’t even need to open salsa (though that would be good too).

Top with cilantro

On Saturday, I repeated the experiment, this time for breakfast, with my husband and daughter. It seemed like a perfect way to sneak in an early vegetable (shhh).  As I rattled off ingredients for approval, my daughter quipped, “I was just waiting for you to say ‘spinach’ and then I’d tell you I don’t eat spinach with eggs.”  

But instead they both loved it. Score one for Mom (and mini-pepper breakfast burritos)!
