Breakfast Taco's

1 lb. bulk breakfast sausage (not links)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 - 3 medium potatoes, cubed
1 average green pepper, chopped
5 - 6 eggs, beaten
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 average tomato, chopped
condiments of your choice

Prepare the sausage, broken up and brown in a skillet, on top of the stove or in an electric one on a medium setting, no higher then about 325 degrees. Add onion and cook until tender and transparent.

Add cubed potatoes, you will want these fairly small - about a quarter to an half inch in size. Stir in potatoes and lower your heat. cover and cook until potatoes are tender. Somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 - 15 minutes. You may want to stir once during this time.

Now, add green pepper and leave a bit crisp. Pour in beaten eggs and scramble with the other ingredients. When eggs are fully cooked, sprinkle preferred amount of shredded cheddar and cover, remove from heat and let it stand and melt.

In the meantime, microwave packages of flour tortilla's for about 30 - 60 seconds to warm them up and make them pliable.

Okay, now comes the fun part ... take a couple of tablespoons of mixture and place on a lower edge of the tortilla and add your favorite condiments: chopped tomatoes, picante sauce, sour cream, guacamole, etc.; fold up the lower edge in towards the mixture and then fold in the sides and roll up. you'll have a neat little package that packs a lot of food in such a small, neat, finger food!

This recipe usually makes between 15 - 20 taco's.
