Time: Under 15 minutes


  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) milk
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • Salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce, to taste
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • 8 flour tortillas, heated
  • 8 small lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chunky salsa
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Cheddar or Canadian Monterey Jack cheese
  • Garnishes, to taste


  1. Beat together eggs, milk, green onion, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce. Heat medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter. When melted, pour in egg mixture and immediately reduce heat to medium-low.
  2. As mixture begins to set, gently move spatula across bottom and sides of skillet to form large, soft curds. Cook until eggs are thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, but they are still moist.
