Nonstick cooking spray
1 10-in. whole wheat flour tortilla (I personally use gluten free tortillas)
3 egg whites (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
2 Tbsp. (1/2 oz.) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese*
1/2 slice (1/2 oz.) lean ham, chopped (optional)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 Tbsp. salsa
Lightly spray a frying pan with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. When pan has heated, add eggs and cook for 2 minutes, scrambling as they cook. Remove eggs from pan and place in center of tortilla. Add cheese and ham. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Roll up burrito-style, wrap in a paper towel, and microwave for 10 seconds. Serve with salsa. Makes 1 serving.
*You can use other low-fat cheeses if you prefer. Look for cheese with 5 grams of fat or less per 1-ounce serving.
