This recipe has roughly 15 grams of carbs.

Place tortillas between two damp paper towels and microwave for 20 seconds. This makes them softer and easier to roll.

In a medium skillet on medium heat, heat the canola oil. Add onions, chiles, tomato, salt and pepper (if desired) and saute for 3 minutes. Add beaten eggs to mixture in the skillet and continue to stir and cook until eggs are fully set.

Divide eggs mixture among the tortillas - top mixture with a generous pinch of cilantro and 2 Tablespoons cheese per burrito. Roll up tortillas and microwave and additional 30 seconds. Top warm burritos with any remaining cheese.

Big Mexican flavor in a low-carb burrito. You can replace the Cheddar cheese with Pepper Jack or a combination of cheeses.
