Breakfast Burritos 2

I decided to try something a little different when I made my second batch of burritos by including tomatoes and green chilis in the mix. The result was a slightly higher calorie burrito with a bit of kick and a bit more veggie. This is very likely the recipe I will continue making since I could use the veggies and they are more convenient without a condiment on top.

The following recipe uses turkey sausage, which is recommended for a heart-healthy option, but pork breakfast sausage can be used instead. Using pork will raise the calorie count to around 400 calories.
