Tortillas for Breakfast

And why not have tortillas for breakfast? These are made in a style like enchiladas. Extra lean ground beef adds a flavor boost while allowing the calories to stay low. Lots of veggies and eggs provide the bulk and the nutrition.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup (160 g) onion, chopped
  • 3/4 pound (340 g) extra lean ground beef
  • 1 cup (150 g) green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups (355 ml) egg substitute
  • 6 whole wheat tortillas, 8-inch (20 cm)
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (130 g) salsa


Heat oil in large fry pan. Add chopped onion, beef, green bell pepper, and black pepper. Stir-fry until tender. Pour egg substitute over onion mix and cook until half-cooked. Spoon into tortilla shells and roll. Bake at 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4) for 25 minutes. Top with sour cream and salsa and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer.

To divide this into as many portions as you want to eat it:

  1. When you’re done preparing meal, measure it with a good kitchen scale.
  2. Note the weight.
  3. If you intend to eat it for, let say 2 times, divide its weight by 2 to know the weight of every portion you’ll be taking.

So for this recipe, if we assume the weight is 500g and you have decided to eat it at 2 different meal times, then you must weigh 250g for every portion.
