Advertisment offer

Green Burrito was first prepared in Mexico. I was searching for various ways I can take my avocado pear and I found this food that looks like shawarma but with different filling . A burrito is a type of Mexican food, consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling. The flour tortilla is usually lightly grilled or steamed, to soften it and make it more pliable.


Tortilla is a round, thin Mexican bread that is usually eaten hot with a filling of meat, cheese, etc.


1 1/2 Tbsp butter
4 beaten eggs
1 1/2 c chopped fresh spinach
Salt and pepper
1 avocado, sliced
Tomato salsa

Salsa a spicy sauce made with tomatoes, onions, and hot peppers that is commonly served with Mexican food

1. MELT 1 1/2 Tbsp butter in a nonstick skillet on medium heat. Stir in 4 beaten eggs and 1 1/2 c of chopped fresh spinach; add salt and pepper.

2. COOK, stirring, until the eggs are softly scrambled, about 2 minutes.

3. WRAP the eggs in warm corn tortillas. Top with sliced avocado and tomato salsa.
