  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a bowl, whisk the eggs and season with salt and pepper.

    • Lay out the tortillas and evenly distribute the scrambled eggs on each one.
    • Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the eggs.
    • Add diced ham or breakfast sausage, diced bell peppers, green onions, and chopped cilantro on top of the cheese.
  3. Roll and Secure:
    • Roll up each tortilla tightly to form a flauta, and place them seam-side down to keep them closed.
    • Use toothpicks to secure the flautas if necessary.
  4. Fry the Flautas:
    • Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add cooking spray or a small amount of vegetable oil.
    • Place the rolled flautas seam-side down in the hot skillet.
    • Cook until golden brown and crispy on all sides, turning occasionally.
