Heat a grill pan or medium sized skillet over medium-high heat.
Once the pan is heated, add your breakfast sausage.
Cook until the sausage is beginning to brown and is cooked through.
Remove to a cutting board, and chop into 1/2 inch pieces.
Add the peppers into the same pan that you just cooked the breakfast sausage in. The leftover grease will take the place of any oil you would normally add to the pan.
Cook for a few minutes until the peppers are soft.
Remove the peppers to the cutting board to cool for a moment.
In a medium-large bowl crack the eggs and discard the shells.
Add the milk, salt, pepper, cilantro and green chile taco sauce.
Whisk until everything is well combined. The milk just makes the eggs a bit more creamy and fluffy. You can skip it if you need.
Add the cheese, sausage, and peppers.
Whisk again to evenly distribute everything.
Heat a large skillet over high heat.
Add a small drizzle of oil or spray with cooking spray.
Add the eggs once the pan is hot and let cook until the bottom and edges or just about set. This will take a few minutes.
Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, begin moving the eggs around. Push one side over, and then the other, etc. Gently fold the eggs over a little to cook the uncooked egg. Cook another minute or until all of the eggs are set. The eggs should almost look undone. If you cook until everything is separated and no longer shiny you'll have dry, hard eggs.
Meanwhile, cook the flour tortillas. Please trust me, the fresh, uncooked tortillas that you cook at home truly are better.
Place the eggs in each tortilla and wrap up.
Serve immediately with a little drizzle of taco sauce, chopped tomatoes and a sprinkling of cilantro.
