  1. COAT large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. COOK sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. POUR OFF all but 1 Tbsp. drippings. ADD bell pepper; sauté until softened, about 4 minutes.

  2. POUR eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, GENTLY PULL the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. CONTINUE cooking – pulling, lifting and folding eggs – until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.

  3. SPOON egg mixture into center of tortillas, dividing evenly; SPRINKLE with cheese. FOLD in sides of tortillas, then roll up burrito-style.
