1 small white or Spanish onion
1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro, finely chopped
2 Serrano chilies, minced
1 lime, juiced

Ingredients (Bacon and egg guacamole – Makes 2 cups)

2 large avocados, pitted, peeled, flesh scooped out with a spoon
2 tbsp (30 mL) pickled jalapeno peppers, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) red onion, minced
1 Roma tomato, diced
1 lime, juiced
2 eggs, hard-boiled and chopped

Ingredients (Green goddess dressing – Makes 1 cup)

2 avocados, peeled and pitted
1 cup (250 mL) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (60 mL) sour cream
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 tbsp (30 mL) parsley leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh chives, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice, freshly squeezed
Pinch salt
Pinch pepper

Instructions (Breakfast burrito)

STEP 1 Heat a skillet or cast iron pan on medium-high. Coat the pan with olive oil. Add the scrambled eggs to the hot oil. Use a high heat rubber spatula to stir the eggs. Lower the flame to medium. Continue to stir the eggs for about 3-4 minutes or until cooked. Add the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

STEP 2 Heat a new saucepan over medium-high heat and heat the tortillas, one at a time. Lay out each tortilla side by side on a clean surface.

STEP 3 Spoon 2-4 tbsp of the green goddess dressing onto each flour tortilla. Lay two slices of bacon on the center of each tortilla. Add 1/4 cup of pico de gallo and guacamole on top of each piece of bacon. Distribute the eggs equally between all tortillas, laying on top of the bacon and pico de gallo. Fold the left and right sides of the tortilla over the fillings. Bring up the side of the tortilla that is facing you. Pull it tight and tuck it under the fillings. Roll forward to form a burrito shape and lay it face down on its “seam”. The avocado dressing will act as a seal. Cut the burrito on a 45° angle bias and serve immediately.
