Ingredients
1 jumbo egg plus 3 egg whites, beaten or 1/2 c. Egg Beaters or other egg substitute
1 fresh green onion top, chopped
2 Tbsp low-fat cream cheese
2 Tbsp black beans
3 Tbsp chunky garden-type salsa
1 10" flour tortilla

Preparation
Heat nonstick skillet and cook egg and onion.  When eggs are almost cooked drop in pieces of cheese or cream cheese.  Place tortilla over the eggs in the skillet to warm.  Remove the warm tortilla, roll with scrambled egg mixture, and salsa.
 
Tips:
Using Egg Beaters lowers the fat and cholesterol.
Use homemade pico de gallo in the place of garden-style salsa and use fresh cooked black beans to reduce the sodium.

Would like to be able to add this as a meal to my food log without having to build the whole thing from scratch

I would like to see this recipe made with either natural egg whites/eggs, or with pure egg whites from a carton. NO EGGBEATERS.

would like to see these recipes made with more whole grains. suggest whole wheat tortillas or corn tortillas. also use plain yogurt instead of cream cheese.
