One thing I have noticed doing this challenge is I'm really stocking the pantry, but still staying under budget (new sour cream, salsa, 6 extra tortillas and 6 extra eggs tonight, plus new peanut butter and soy sauce last night) which means I could try carrying on the challenge another week using these pantry ingredients, and I could probably do dinner for under $10.... hmmm....
Sausage and Peppers Breakfast Burritos
6 eggs (3 whole, 3 whites) ($2.89 for 1 dozen, $.80 off coupon)
1/2 lb. bulk turkey sausage ($3.99/lb. - $2)
2 green bell peppers (2 for $1)
1 red onion ($.59)
1/2 c. prepared salsa ($.99 for a new jar)
1/2 c. cheddar cheese ($1.49 for a 2 c. bag)
Chopped cilantro (from last night's dinner)
Sour Cream ($2.19 for new container, $.55 off coupon - $1.64)
Pineapple Spears ($2.99 but only used half, rest is for Friday - $1.50)
Whole Wheat Tortillas ($2.99 plust $1 off coupon - $1.99)
Heat a large nonstickk pan over medium high. Add sausage, break apart and cook for 6-7 minutes.
While sausage cooks, seed and dice peppers and onion.
Pour sausage onto a papertowel lined plate to get the grease off.
Add onions and peppers to the skillet, season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring every now and then.
While peppers cook, whisk eggs in a small bowl. Set aside.
Break down pineapple and slice into spears (half).
Add the sausage back into the onions and peppers, toss, then move to the sides of the pan.
Pour the eggs into the middle and scramble.
Once eggs are cooked, stir the entire mixture to distribute all ingredients evenly.
Lay out tortillas, top with egg mixture, cheese, chopped cilantro, salsa and sour cream.
Serve with pineapples
(Makes enough for 4 large burritos)
