What to do

  • 1. Warm the tortillas according to packet directions.

  • 2. Melt the butter in a non-stick saucepan. Pour in the eggs and chives, and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring as the eggs starts to set on the bottom.

  • 3. Lay out the warm tortillas. Fill with the scrambled egg, cheese, tomato and pea sprouts, dividing evenly down the centre of each tortilla.

  • 4. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up over the filling, then fold the sides over to enclose. Serve straight away.

  • Variation: Try different fillings with the scrambled eggs, such as cooked bacon, spicy salsa, corn kernels or chopped red capsicum.
