  • Yields: 6 burritos



12 strips turkey bacon

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

12 eggs

1/3 cup milk

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp smoked paprika (optional)

2 tbsp butter

2 avocados, chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

1 1/2 cups Mexican blend cheese

6 10-inch burrito-style tortillas

Dipping Sauce

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayo

Juice from 1 lemon

2 tbsp basil

Salt, to taste


In a large skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Once cool, chop the bacon.

Remove all but 1 Tablespoon of the bacon grease then add the chopped onion. Saute until onions are soft and translucent, 5-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and paprika. Melt the butter in a skillet set over medium low heat. Add the eggs and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the eggs are soft set and still a bit shiny. Remove to a plate.

To assemble the burritos, divide the fillings (bacon, onion, eggs, cheese, tomato, and avocado*) evenly over the 8 burrito shells, leaving 1.5 inches on the top and bottom free.

Fold the bottom and top in, then roll the burrito over the filling. Lay it seam side down. Repeat with remaining burritos.

Place 2-4 burritos seam side down in your air fryer, and fry at 390 degrees for 5 minutes. Flip and cook another 3-5 minutes or until golden and crispy.

For the sauce, whisk together all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you're planning to freeze the burritos, omit tomato and avocado and serve on the side instead. To freeze or refrigerate, wrap unfried burritos in saran wrap and an airtight container or baggie. Freeze for up to 3 months. See post above for cooking instructions.
