Egg White "Tortilla" Burrito

These tortillas are NOT going to be like gluten or corn tortillas.  You will never get the same consistency and you won't be able to pick the burrito up and eat it.  It must be eaten with a fork.

That being said, I have found that these tortillas suffice my craving!  They are very simple to make and you can toss anything you want in and on top of them.  This particular tortilla is stuffed with leftover bbq pork (recipe will be posted this week) and topped with avocado and Frank's red sauce. Delish!

Egg white tortilla (makes 1 tortilla)

2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/3 cup egg whites
salt and pepper

Heat the coconut oil over medium heat.  Let the coconut oil melt completely, and then allow the oil to get nice and hot.  Pour the egg whites into the hot pan.  Sprinkle with desired salt and pepper and allow the egg white to cook through.

I do not flip this tortilla.  They are extremely delicate and will rip!  I let the tortilla get nice and brown and then dump it out onto a large plate.  Quickly and gently pull it into one layer.  Add some cooked meat, fold over and if desired, top it with some avocado, salsa, or guacamole. Enjoy!
