  1. Hi, Lisa! This recipe looks great!! I look forward to making it this week!
    Could you tell me why you add the water to the eggs before you scramble them? Does it make them fluffier? Make them go further? Freeze better?
    Thanks so much!

  2. How much of the onion, peppers, and salsa would I use if I wanted to incorporate? Sorry, I’m new to cooking in bulk πŸ™‚

    1. I would start with a small amount (possibly 1/2 cup total), and then add to it if you like. You can customize to your family’s preference.

  3. Could you reheat these in the Instant Pot? What would that look like for setting and time? and moisture level – would it need to be pot in pot?

  4. Hi thanks for great recipe! My daughter can’t do dairy so we add refried beans or ground sausage to her breakfast burritos. Can either of these be added sms done as a option for freezer? If so, any special instructions. Thanks:) I’m very new to freezer cooking.
