Peggy's Paparito's


A few years back I had the pleasure of meeting and making friends with a lovely lady named Peggy.   She was a transplanted Texan, and loved all things Tex-Mex.    She gave me the following recipe.  

This is a really great go-to quick breakfast, leisurely Sunday breakfast or light meal.   And the best part, you can adjust the heat level to your own liking.    We like it on the hot side in our house, so I use hot sausage for this, or just doctor up some sage sausage with some cayenne pepper and pepper flakes.   
Paparito Filling
Pan with potatoes, green chiles, sausage and onions.
Scrambled Eggs


Wrapped and ready to eat
Peggy’s Paparito’s
Stir fried potatoes with skins  ( I do about 6 small red potatoes for the two of us)
Scrambled eggs  1-2 per person
Grated long horn or Colby Jack Cheese cheese
1/2- 1 Onion
Chorizo sausage or sage sausage, fried and crumbled   ( I use Wainwrights Hot Sausage) or just doctor some Sage Sausage with some red pepper or cayenne.  giggle.
Diced green chiles and diced green pepper
Add a diced jalapeno or two if you like a little more heat. (and you know me, I do).
Mix above ingredients together and roll in a flour tortilla, burrito style.  
1 can green Chile sauce (I like Herdez brand) 
Serve with warmed Green Chile sauce poured over and a sprinkle of cheese.   Place under the broiler for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese if you like. 

How easy is that?   I like to put the onions and jalapeno's in the pan with the potatoes, it adds a nice little nuance or level of flavor.   But you can vary this however you like to your taste.   And the best part, you can freeze the leftovers and have a head-start on your next breakfast.
