Preparation

In a medium bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add corn, onion, pepper, 1/4 cup (60 mL) tomato salsa, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.

Over medium-high heat in a 6 inch (15 cm) nonstick skillet, melt 1/2 tsp (2 mL) butter. Pour in 1/3 cup (80 mL) egg mixture. As eggs begin to set, lift edges to allow the uncooked egg to flow under. When omelette is set, slide onto a tortilla. Spread omelette with 1 tbsp (15 mL) salsa.

Roll up. Reheat for each EGGrito. Slice in half or into bit-size pieces. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Tips

For lunch bag:Cool EGGritos completely. Wrap separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate.

To reheat, if desired, remove plastic wrap, roll one EGGrito in a paper napkin and reheat in microwave oven on high 45 to 60 seconds.
