Guacamole Breakfast Burrito

Today is the first day post Cinco de Mayo, so what better way to celebrate than with leftover Guacamole... in a breakfast burrito! I fantasized about such a creation the night before, wondering what to do with all the leftover Guac from Lindsey's (of Hungry Eyes fame) Cinco de Mayo (ie, Cinco de Drinko) dinner party. I thought that just scrambled eggs and guac might be a smooth and creamy option by themselves, but I couldn't resist the urge to add my favorite breakfast potatoes into the spinach tortilla wrap as well. And, as a big cheese head, I added a slice of pepper jack over the steaming eggs.

It was delicious! The spicy onion-cilantro-ness of the guacamole complemented the smooth scrambled eggs in both texture and taste. The cheese added some saltiness and some bite with the pepper-jack and the spinach tortilla contributed with a subtle veggie flavor.. and the potatoes. Oh. Just when you thought, hey this is pretty good, BAM! you bite in to a crispy-on-the-outside-but-soft-on-the-inside breakfast potato. Bliss for breakfast.
