Helpful hints

  • Burritos freeze and reheat well. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in freezer bag. To reheat burrito remove from plastic, place on microwave-safe plate, cover with a damp paper towel and microwave 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Tortillas, salsa and hot pepper sauces vary greatly in sodium content. Compare nutrition labels on brands and select the ones lowest in sodium.
  • Low cholesterol egg substitute may be substituted for whole eggs. Cholesterol is 0 mg if egg substitute is used.
  • May use 1 tablespoon of salsa per burrito. If does add sodium so look for brands that are lower sodium or make a homemade salsa.
