Breakfast Burritos with Chorizo
From Gourmet Today cookbook
4 (9-to 11-inch) flour tortillas
7 to 8 ounces  chorizo, casings removed
1 large boiling potato (8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1/3-inch dice
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon water
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup coarsely grated Monterey Jack (about 4 ounces)
1 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup fresh or bottled salsa
Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Cut 4 (12-by 8-inch) sheets of foil. Cook potato in a small pot of salted boiling water until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain. Wrap tortillas tightly in a large sheet of foil and warm in oven until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, cook chorizo in an 8-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring and breaking it up, until just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add potato and cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until tender and lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.  Whisk together eggs, water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring to scramble, until just cooked through. Remove from heat. Put a tortilla on 1 sheet of foil. Spoon one fourth of chorizo mixture, one fourth of eggs, one fourth of cheese, one fourth of  avocado, and then salsa to taste in vertical rows across center, leaving room to fold over bottom and sides. Fold bottom of tortilla over most of filling, then fold over sides, overlapping them. If desired, fold top down (otherwise, filling can be left exposed). Wrap foil around burrito, leaving top exposed. Make 3 more burritos in same manner and serve hot.
Breakfast Burritos with Spinach and Feta
2 packed cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
4 slices of turkey bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon snipped chives
4 red leaf lettuce leaves
Four 8-inch, whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
Kosher salt to taste
In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil. Add the red onion and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey bacon and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until browned, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach and tomatoes and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt. Wipe out the skillet.  In a bowl, whisk the whole eggs and egg whites and season with salt. Heat the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of oil in the skillet. Add the eggs and cook over moderate heat, stirring gently, until set,
3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the bacon mixture, feta and chives.  Spoon the egg mixture down the center of each tortilla and top with the lettuce. Fold in the sides of the tortillas, then fold the bottom of the tortillas over the filling and continue to roll until the filling is enclosed. Cut the burritos in half and serve.
