A Healthier Breakfast Burrito

When you think of breakfast burritos, do you immediately feel your arteries clog up? This is not that kind of burrito, but it is really good. I would have eaten two (hey, corn tortillas are small), but Carter got up from his nap in time to eat quite a bit of mine.
I often have leftovers of ground beef in the fridge. Usually when I cook ground beef, I do enough for some leftovers (we love our nachos!). I also usually cook it with dried minced onion added to the beef.

Spinach Breakfast Burrito

Some cooked ground beef
Dried minced onions (could be cooked in the beef, or added later)
Some fresh spinach, cut up in small strips
2 eggs (for one person, or two with small appetites)
A little cheese (or a lot) – I used mozzarella
2 corn tortillas

In a skillet on medium heat, warm the ground beef, onions, and spinach, until the beef is warm and the spinach is starting to cook. Add the eggs, scramble them and stir until cooked through. Turn off the burner and add the cheese (to melt), and place the tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds, or until hot. Scoop some of the egg mixture into the tortilla, roll, and enjoy. For an extra kick (and extra veggies), add some salsa to your burrito.
