  • 6 large tortillas
  • 12 baby potatoes, quartered
  • 1 recipe chipotle mayo (mayo, chipotle, lime)
  • 4 oz canned green chilis
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Mexican oregano
  • Kosher salt + pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese (more if desired)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 6 maple chicken sausage links (I use pre-cooked Applegate farms)
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 9 eggs
  • hot sauce or salsa, to top


Make Perfect Potatoes for Burritos:

  1. Bring a large pot of SALTED water to a boil. Add quartered potatoes and boil until softened. About 12-15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the Chipotle Mayo.

  3. When the potatoes are fork tender, drain, add to a large bowl with drained green chilis, 2 Tbs of the chipotle mayo sauce, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside.

Prepare Chicken Sausage + Peppers:

  1. In a large sauté pan, add 2 tsp of avocado oil and brown chicken sausage over medium-high heat, you can add the diced red pepper in the same pan and cook until softened. ~5 min.

How to Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs:

  1. Melt 2 Tbs butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add whisked eggs seasoned with salt and pepper. Stir and fold the eggs over themselves a few times as they cook ~ 3-5 min.

    The butter is key to fluffiness. Not my normal, but the secret to fluffy egg burritos!

Ready to assemble:

  1. Make sure your tortillas are warm and pliable. A few seconds in the microwave wrapped in a kitchen towel will do the trick!

  2. First spread 2 tsp of chipotle mayo along the center of each tortilla.

  3. Divide the other ingredients into 6 portions. Layer cheese, potatoes, chicken sausage, red pepper, and eggs.

  4. Now the art to the burrito, fold in two sides and roll over. For tips, see this tortilla rolling video. Wrap in foil to secure.

  5. Serve with hot sauce and/or salsa.
