4 Egg Whites
2 Tablespoon Whole Flax Seeds
4 Oz Reduced-Fat Pepper Jack Cheese, Shredded
2 Cups Baby Spinach, Loosely Chopped
1 Cup Diced Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Bell Pepper, Diced
1 Jalapeno Pepper, Diced
1 Tablespoon Red Onion, Chopped
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
2 Teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Pepper
1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, and whole flax seed. Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet, and swirl to evenly distribute the eggs on the surface, forming a thin, tortilla or crepe like shape. Cook for a couple of minutes until the edges and bottom of the tortilla are firm. Tilt the skillet from side to side to make sure the eggs are no longer runny. Gently loosen the tortilla from the surface with a spatula, and carefully flip. Continue to cook until eggs are fully set. Repeat with the other half of the tortilla mixture. Set tortillas aside when finished. Lightly grease the same skillet, and saute the spinach for 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted, over low to medium-high heat. When done, remove from heat and set aside. Combine all of the salsa ingredients in medium-sized mixing bowls. Place tortilla on a large plate. Add half of the spinach, cheese, and salsa to the middle, and then roll into a burrito. Serve immediately.
