Steak and Egg Burrito

Wednesday nights I am usually on my own for dinner.  The ladies eat at church, and I go to the gym and then home to enjoy some quiet time and make my own meal.
Tonight as I left the gym I ran by the grocery store and picked up a top round small cut steak for $1.09.  It was less than half a pound and perfect for two great breakfast wraps- one tonight and one for breakfast in the morning!

1/3 cup of chopped sweet pepper
½ cup chopped mushrooms

½ tsp. red pepper flakes
1 large egg

2oz. top round steak, cut into small cubes 
¼ cup 100% egg whites

½ cup of salsa
1 serving of tortilla chips

1 light flat bread wrap
2 Tbsp. shredded cheese (reduced fat)    

1 tsp. olive oil

1 small Roma tomato, chopped and divided

What to do –
Crack egg and scramble with the egg whites.
Over medium heat, add oil to a small skillet, and add beef.

After a minute or two, add peppers, mushrooms, red pepper flakes stirring regularly.  As the veggies soften a little add the egg mixture to the skillet and allow to set for a couple of minutes.

Once the edges have set, stir the mix to blend through.  Turn off heat.
Meanwhile, put cheese on the flat bread and heat for :20 seconds in the microwave.

Add the skillet mixture to the flat bread, and add half the sliced tomato.  Put the salsa into the skillet and set on the still warm eye on the stove. 

Roll up the flat bread.  Stir salsa and pour warm salsa over the “burrito”.  Top with tomatoes and serve with tortilla chips.  Advice: A fork and knife will be necessary to consume all this goodness.

The entire meal is around 400 calories including the chips.
