Southwest-Style Sausage Breakfast Burritos

Let’s get into these Southwest-style chicken sausage breakfast burritos. As you can see by the picture, we’re not skimping on fillings here.

You guys should know by now that during the weekdays, I like to have a pre-prepped breakfast ready to go. It’s way more filling to eat a hot, balanced breakfast vs. just a piece of fruit or something; but I usually don’t want to spend 20 minutes prepping & washing dishes before work!

Breakfast burritos are one of my favorite weekday breakfast recipes. You can customize them to keep variety, they can be made meat/dairy-free, and they freeze & reheat so well! Heat these babies in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and serve with some hot sauce for a super satisfying meal that will carry you over to lunch.

Today we’re going to be making southwest-style sausage breakfast burritos (are you surprised? I love anything Mexican-inspired!) with chicken sausage instead of pork. Using frozen veggies, the prep for these is really minimal. As a matter of fact, I think the most difficult thing for beginners is wrapping the burrito! Try these with veggie sausage, bacon, or fresh spinach inside.
