Salt & pepper to taste
4-6 medium-sized whole wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Optional, yet delicious ingredients:

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb pork sausage
1 Tbsp taco seasoning
*if you use all of these ingredients, you will need an additional 4-6 tortilla shells.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and season with salt and pepper as desired. Pour whisked eggs into a medium skillet; cook and scramble eggs as they cook. Once the eggs are cooked, remove from heat, and allow mixture to cool.
