It's Too Hot To Cook Dinner


Here in Albuquerque, New Mexico it is 95 degrees and hot. I love summer but hate that it is too hot to turn on the oven. So I cook using the microwave and stove. Last night I made breakfast burritos and it took less than 5 minutes to make. I always have the ingredients on hand to make some kind of mexican food.


The ingredients to make breakfast burritos are very simple. 

Tortillas - this is a New Mexico staple as it is our bread

a dozen eggs

shredded cheese- I like cheddar but we were out so I use mozzarella

salsa

potatoes

guacamole- I like to keep Wholly Guacamole in the freezer for quick meals,it thaws quick in a bowl of cold water

I scrubbed the potatoes and cooked them in the microwave. As the potatoes where cooking, I scrambled the eggs. Once the potatoes were done, I cut them in cubes and pan fried them in a hot pan with no oil until they turned brown.



Then I place all the ingredients on the counter and allowed everyone to create their own burrito.


Here is how I made mine. I place eggs, potatoes, salsa, cheese, and guacamole on the tortilla. Then I folded up the tortilla. I also microwave a package of frozen broccoli to go with the breakfast burritos. This is a easy dinner to make on a hot summer night.
