New Mexico Green Chile Breakfast Burritos

Back when I lived in the Southwest, we wrapped everything up in a tortilla. Breakfast burritos in every possible combination are very popular in New Mexico. —Angela Spengler, Tampa, Florida

    Loved this healthier alternate to breakfast burritos. I usually don't like the taste of wheat tortillas or turkey sausage. I must say this was very tasty. Will make again.
