  • 6 Flour Tortillas
  • 1 ½ russet potatoes shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 5 tbs olive oil divided*
  • 10 oz bacon
  • 9 eggs divided
  • 1 cup green chile
  • 12 cups pepper jack cheese shredded
  • 2 avocados sliced
  • 1 jar green salsa*


  • In a medium large fry pan cook bacon until done to your desired crispiness. When cool enough cut into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Rinse potatoes. Using a food processor or cheese grater, shred potatoes. In a medium bowl, combine 1 egg, salt, garlic powder, and shredded potato. Mix well.
  • In a medium-large fry pan heat 2 tbs oil over medium high heat. Once hot, add enough potatoes to cover the pan in an even layer. Let cook for several minutes before flipping. Brown all the shredded potatoes, cooking completely. Add more oil if needed. When done set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk 8 eggs. Using a little butter or oil (this can be the same pan with left over grease from the potatoes or bacon) grease a medium sized fry pan. Scramble the eggs, cooking until done.
  • In a small sauce pan combine the jar of green salsa and the green chile. Heat until warm.

To make burritos

  • Lay a flour tortilla on a flat surface.
  • Add green chile sauce, hash browns, cheese, scrambled egg, bacon, and sliced avocado.
  • Roll up tucking the ends of the tortilla in as you roll.
  • After rolling, heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a medium fry pan. Once hot brown the burrito until golden brown on all sides.*
  • Enjoy!


*The amount of oil really depends on how much you need to fry. It isn’t an easy thing to measure since I just add a little at a time when I think I need more.*I like to use the Herdez Green Salsa for this.* You don’t have to fry the outside of the burritos but it definitely takes your burrito to the next level.
