  • ½ cup finely diced green pepper
  • ¼ cup finely diced shallots
  • ½ cup finely chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 4 large eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk or half and half
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 - 8 " flour tortillas
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • ½ cup prepared salsa


  • Add the diced green pepper and shallots to a 6½" - 7" air fryer "pizza" pan along with a touch of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Set the air fryer to 400-degrees and cook for 7 minutes, stirring once.
  • Add the finely chopped tomato to the pan and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of butter to a 6½" - 7" "cake pan" and melt it in the air fryer for approximately 1 minute at 350-degrees.
  • Whisk 4 eggs in a medium bowl along with 2 tablespoons milk, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  • Add the beaten eggs to the pan with the melted butter and place it in the air fryer at 350-degrees for 3 minutes.
  • Remove, stir, and repeat at three-minute intervals until your desired doneness. Note - I did mine three times, at three-minute intervals.
  • Add the sautéed vegetables to the scrambled eggs and stir to combine.
  • Fill and roll three 8" flour tortillas with the scrambled egg mixture and top with shredded cheese.
  • Add the breakfast burritos to a small casserole dish (seam side down), top with prepared salsa, and additional shredded cheese.
  • Return the breakfast burritos to the air fryer and cook at 375-degrees for 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the burritos are heated through.
  • Serve.
