Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cooking Vegetarian? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • tip 2
    Can’t take the heat? Opt for shredded plain Monterey Jack cheese instead of pepper Jack.
  • tip 3
    Make this bell pepper breakfast burrito your own! Experiment with other fresh veggies instead of the bell peppers, or use finely chopped white onion instead of green onions.
  • tip 4
    For spicier vegetarian breakfast burritos, top with thinly sliced fresh jalapeño peppers.
