🌭 ½ ring (7 ounces) Kielbasa, diced
🥔 2 cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes
½ red bell pepper, diced
½ green bell pepper, diced
🧅 1 small yellow onion, diced (about ½ cup)
🌶️ 1 medium jalapeno pepper, seeded, diced
🧂 ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
⚫ ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
🧄 ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
🥚 4 large eggs, beaten
🤠 ½ teaspoon cowboy ranch seasoning mix (optional)
🧈 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
🌯 4 large (10-inch) flour tortillas
🧀 1 cup (113 g) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
🧀 1 cup (113 g) Monterey jack cheese, shredded, divided
🥄 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, for pan-frying
🥄 Sour cream, for serving
🍅 Salsa, for serving
Cook Sausage and Kielbasa:
To a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add the sausage. Cook for 6-7 minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink.
Add diced kielbasa and cook for 2-4 minutes, or until the kielbasa is browned and ground sausage is cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, remove the meat mixture from the pan and place onto a paper towel-lined plate. This makes about 2 cups.
Cook Potatoes and Vegetables:
To the drippings in the skillet, add the potatoes. Toss to coat with drippings. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost cooked through.
To the potatoes in the skillet, add red bell pepper, green bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Continue cooking for 5-7 more minutes, or until softened and cooked through. Remove from the pan and place the potato and vegetables in a bowl or on a plate while you prepare the eggs. This makes about 3 cups. Wipe out the skillet.
Prepare Eggs:
To the beaten eggs, add the cowboy ranch seasoning mix (if using – you can also season with salt and pepper). Mix well.
In the same skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, pour in the seasoned eggs. Gently push them across the pan with a spatula, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking the eggs until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Avoid constant stirring. Remove the pan from heat and set aside.
Assemble Burritos:
Lay out tortillas on a clean surface. Divide the sausage, kielbasa, potato and vegetable mixture, scrambled eggs, and cheeses among the tortillas.
Roll up each tortilla, tucking in the ends, to form a burrito.
Cook Burritos:
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Place burritos seam side down in the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Serve the burritos hot with sour cream and salsa on the side.

Here are some tips and secrets to achieve the perfect Cowboy Breakfast Burrito:

  1. Cook Sausage and Kielbasa Together: Cooking the ground pork sausage and diced kielbasa together in the same skillet adds layers of flavor to the filling. Ensure the sausage is fully cooked and browned before adding the kielbasa.
  2. Drain Excess Grease: After cooking the sausage and kielbasa, remove them from the skillet using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess grease. This helps prevent the burrito from becoming too greasy.
  3. Properly Cook Potatoes: Cook the frozen diced hash brown potatoes in the skillet until they are almost cooked through before adding the diced peppers, onion, and jalapeno. This ensures the potatoes are tender and fully cooked by the time the vegetables are softened.
  4. Seasoning for Flavor: Use seasoned salt, black pepper, and garlic powder to season the potatoes and vegetables. This adds depth of flavor to the filling mixture.
  5. Flavorful Eggs: Season the beaten eggs with cowboy ranch seasoning mix or your favorite seasoning blend for added flavor. Cook the eggs gently in the skillet, pushing them across the pan with a spatula to form large soft curds.
  6. Assemble Burritos Properly: Divide the cooked sausage, kielbasa, potato and vegetable mixture, scrambled eggs, and shredded cheeses evenly among the tortillas. Roll up each tortilla tightly, tucking in the ends to prevent the filling from spilling out during cooking.
  7. Crispy Burritos: Pan-fry the assembled burritos in vegetable oil over medium heat until they are golden brown and crispy on all sides. This step adds texture and enhances the flavor of the burritos.
  8. Serve Hot: Serve the Cowboy Breakfast Burritos hot with sour cream and salsa on the side for dipping or drizzling. Enjoy the hearty and flavorful breakfast burritos immediately for the best taste and texture.
