Total Time: 20 mins


  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • ½ small red or green pepper, diced
  • ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ⅔ cup diced ham
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 4 whole wheat or regular flour tortillas, warmed
  • ½ cup Tex-Mex or Cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. In medium non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; sauté red and jalapeno peppers and garlic for 2 minutes or until softened. Add ham and chili powder; sauté 2 minutes or until heated through. Remove to bowl; cover to keep warm.
  2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk eggs, salt and pepper.
  3. Melt butter in the same skillet on medium heat; add eggs and cook, stirring gently, until set but still soft, about 2 minutes.
  4. Spoon eggs on each tortilla, top with ham mixture, green cheese and onion. Serve with salsa and/or coriander, if desired.
  5. Variation:  Substitute cooked black beans or your favorite beans for the ham to create a vegetarian version. 


Wrap tortillas in foil and heat in a toaster oven or oven. Or wrap in a tea towel and microwave on high power for 30 seconds or until warm.
