  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the potato slices in the skillet and season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan to a baking sheet and put in the warm oven.
  3. Stir chorizo into skillet and cook until browned and crumbly, stirring frequently to break apart. Pour off the grease, then place the chorizo in the oven with the potatoes. Wipe the skillet dry with paper towels.
  4. Wrap the tortillas with aluminum foil and place in the warm oven.
  5. Melt butter in the skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the eggs and continually stir while cooking. When the eggs are nearly set, mix in the chorizo and potatoes. Add the cream cheese and stir until melted; just before serving, fold in the cilantro.
  6. Place the tortillas onto individual plates and spoon the eggs onto the lower half of each. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll the tortillas into a tight cylinder; top with green salsa to serve.

Loved these! I used 4 blend Mexican cheese instead of cream cheese and thought it was wonderful!

This was delicious! I made several changes. I used only 5-6 potatoes and increased the eggs to 8. I also used red salsa instead of green. The recipe made about 7 burritos. We'll definitely ...

This was great, Seattle Dad! I used 4 good sized organic red potatoes, ground california chili pepper (you get the full flavor of the chili powder without a ton of heat), 3 full eggs and 4 egg w...

These burritos are delicious! For those of you complaining about the calorie content, just simply don't make them I don't know why you have to make such a big deal over a recipe! Thanks Seattle ...

I skipped the potatoes to reduce the carbs. Great remedy for a late night out. For more heat pass the hot sauce. I substituted flour tortillas and covered in a cheesy sauce.

The original recipe as written definitely has a high fat and calorie content, but being both more health conscious AND a lover of Mexican/New Mexican food, I used it as a starting point and twea...

Delicious! Used a carton of egg substitute and light cream cheese. Everything else was spot on to the recipe (including green salsa-yum!) and I wouldn't change a thing.
