Yield: 6 Servings


  • 6 TB light sour cream
  • 6 TB medium salsa
  • Cooking spray
  • ¾ cup chopped onion
  • ¾ cup chopped poblano pepper (1 pepper)
  • 2 cups egg substitute
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp cumin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sour cream and salsa in a small bowl and set aside. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Sauté onion and pepper for 5-7 minutes or until slightly softened. Whisk together egg substitute, salt, cumin, and cayenne. Scramble in skillet with onion and pepper mixture until cooked through. 

Place each tortilla on a square of aluminum foil. Spoon ½ cup scrambled egg mixture down the center. Top with 2 TB salsa mixture and 2 TB shredded cheese. Roll up burrito-style and wrap tightly with foil. Place in oven for 10-15 minutes or until warmed through.


If making ahead of time, place in pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes to heat through.
