 Tortilla-Free Burrito (iVillage)

Introduction

From iVillage

"This high-protein dish is a staple in Season 4 contestant Nicole Michalik's kitchen. "I try not to eat carbs after 5:00 p.m., so I make this for dinner. It's perfect with salsa and guacamole. I don't even miss the tortilla," she says. This recipe makes about 8 cups so it's easy to freeze some for later."
