This spicy breakfast burrito is the right way to kick off your morning. It’s stuffed with scrambled tofu, made spicy from fresh jalapeño peppers, fresh greens, avocado, and a zingy hot sauce, makes this a satisfying and manageable breakfast or brunch. You could even add black beans, or a drizzle of Sriracha, if jalapeño isn’t spicy enough for you.
