  • 2 medium Eggs
  • 4 medium Egg Whites
  • 2 tbsp Whole Flax Seeds
  • 3 dash Light Cooking Spray
  • 4 oz Reduced-Fat Pepper Jack Cheese shredded
  • 2 cup Baby Spinach chopped
  • 1 cup Tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 cup Green Bell Peppers diced
  • 1 medium Jalapeno Peppers diced
  • 1 tbsp Red Onion chopped
  • 1 tsp Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt (optional)*
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro chopped



  1. In a small mixing dish, whisk together the ingredients for the tortilla. (2 eggs, 4 egg whites, and 2 tablespoons whole flax seeds)
  2. Place the skillet on a burner set to medium-high heat spray it with cooking spray. Spread half of the egg mixture into the skillet, swirling gently to distribute the eggs evenly throughout, forming a thin, tortilla- or crepe-like shape. Cook for a couple of minutes, or until the edges and bottom of the tortilla are firm. Tilt the skillet from side to side to check if the eggs are still runny. Remove the tortilla from the pan with a spatula and carefully flip. Continue to cook until the eggs are firm. Place another tortilla on the prepared pan and top with the remaining half of each tortilla mixture. When finished, set aside any leftovers.
  3. Heat the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté the spinach for 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted, over low to medium high heat. Remove from the heat and set aside when done.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the salsa ingredients. (diced tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapeos, red onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt , pepper & cilantro).
  5. Place the tortilla on a large plate. Fill the center of the burrito with half of the spinach, cheese, and salsa. Serves immediately after rolling.
