Egg and Chorizo Wrap #WeekdaySupper

This Weekday Supper recipe was born out of desperation, not creativity. Most moms and many dads can relate – every once in a while, we let our kids sign up for too many things. They love the school sports but they also signed up for the recreational team. Yep, it was one of those nights that I was scrambling to get the boys from one sport to the next and realized that I had not planned anything for dinner.

Taking a quick glance in the fridge — we had eggs, chorizo (always a staple at our home), cheese and whole wheat tortillas. All the inspiration that we needed to make Egg and Chorizo Wraps!

This tasty little number has quickly become a favorite for busy nights. No time to make a salad, throw in some fruit and we are good to go!

Kudos to you for developing this dish on the fly. I would be serving breakfast cereal if that were me.
