  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage
  • 12 eggs beaten
  • 1 and 1/2 cup frozen hash browns
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green chiles
  • 2 teaspoons Ancho-chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded hot pepper blend cheese
  • 12-20 flour tortillas


  • Spray pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Crumble sausage and add to hot pan. Turn heat down to medium. Cook sausage until thoroughly cooked throughout. Do not drain, unless sausage is very fatty (if sausage is fatty, drain and reserve a bit of fat in the pan to fry the potatoes). Transfer the sausage to a bowl with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add hash browns and cook until they are roughly 1/2 done. Then, add red bell peppers, onions, green chiles, Ancho-chile powder and cumin and cook until potatoes are completely done and a bit crunchy.
  • Add eggs and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until nearly done. Add sausage to pan and cook until eggs are completely done throughout.
  • Next, add both cheddar and hot pepper blend cheese and stir until thoroughly melted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Place each tortilla out individually and fill with 2 to 3 tablespoons of filling. Fold each side, then roll top to bottom until filling is entirely contained. Wrap each burrito in waxed paper and secure with tape (if necessary). Put in a Ziploc bag and place in freezer.
  • When ready to eat, heat in a microwave 1 to 2 minutes (READ NOTE) until warm throughout.


NOTE: Do NOT overheat when microwaving. Microwaves heat differently - that is why there is a range of 1-2 minutes. My microwave heats these perfectly at just 1 minute. BE SURE TO REMOVE THE WAX PAPER BEFORE MICROWAVING.
