Southwest Egg Roll-Up


For each roll-up, beat one egg in a small bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Preheat a small (6- or 8-inch) skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. When the oil is hot, add the beaten egg. The egg should set up quickly. Top the egg with chopped vegetables as desired, ham and shredded cheese. Carefully place a tortilla on top of the cheese and use a spatula to gently press down to help the tortilla adhere to the egg; allow to cook about 30 seconds more. Use a spatula to flip the egg and cook for 1 minute or until the tortilla is golden and the egg is completely cooked. Remove from skillet and place on a plate, tortilla side down; allow to cool slightly. When it’s cool enough to touch, top with a few slices of avocado and roll up tortilla. Serve hot.
