I’ve had another job change (same hospital, different department and shift), so I’m changing how I meal prep. My husband has made a bunch of breakfast burritos for his lunches before, and I love breakfast burritos! So, I decided to make a low carb (or keto?) version for myself.
This week I’m doing a green chili and cheese burrito. I want to bulk it up with veggies whenever I can, to make it more filling. And I looove green chilies! I had some that were diced and some whole, so I used both. I diced up the whole ones, of course.
It made for a LOT of green chilies, but I really don’t mind. On the contrary, I enjoy it!
I mixed in six eggs and started stirring for a good scramble.
It might not be the prettiest thing, but it is filling and good!
These are the wraps I use. They’re HUGE.
Not only huge, but they’re only 70 calories! Honestly, I shudder to think how they made such a large tortilla that only has 70 calories, but I’m trying to eat fewer carbs, so this is what I’m doing.
Ya’ll. It FILLS THE SKILLET.
We have Costco shredded cheese, so I put in what is apparently a serving: 1/3 cup. I think somebody in Costco likes me.
I work four days in a row, hence four burritos. The tortillas are toasted and the cheese is getting melty. Time to add the egg and chili scramble!
That is a monster breakfast burrito! I added Tapatio for more flavor and voila!
Rolled up and stacked in the refrigerator, I only have to take one out and heat it on the skillet (in the foil) to have a burrito to go. We don’t have a microwave, but it’s better heated up like this than in a microwave.
While I was at the store, I saw these Kettle & Fire Keto soups, so I thought I’d try them out! They’re kind of on the expensive side, so I have hope that they’re delicious. I also grabbed a butternut squash soup, which I don’t believe is super low carb. It is only 90 calories per serving, however, and when I eat two servings on my lunch, I don’t feel bad at all! I also bulked it up with some mushrooms, salsa, and added sriracha for fun.
I’ve had one of the breakfast burritos yesterday just before work, and it kept me full for a LONG time! The soup was perfect (and hotter than expected) and kept me filled up for the rest of the shift.
If you’d like to know the details on each breakfast burrito, here you go!

If you try it out, let me know in the comments! I already have plans for a chorizo burrito and more… YUM!
