About This Dish

This hearty twist on a Tex-Mex favorite features the gentle spiciness of Italian sausage, scrambled eggs, cream cheese, and steamy whole grain brown rice, served in a skillet-toasted tortilla that bursts with flavor.


  • 1 package UNCLE BEN'S® READY RICE® Whole Grain Brown
  • ½ pound mild Italian sausage
  • ½ cup chopped colored bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3 ounces light cream cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 8 (6 ¼-inch) flour tortillas


  1. In 10-inch skillet over medium heat cook sausage, bell pepper, and onion, stirring occasionally, until sausage is cooked through (10 to 12 minutes).
  2. Add rice, eggs, and cream cheese.
  3. Continue cooking, over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until eggs are cooked and cheese is melted (4 to 5 minutes).
  4. This is a fun part of the project that your child can help you with. On one side of tortilla place about ½ cup rice mixture. 
  5. Fold over tortilla and continue cooking, over medium heat, until first side is light brown (1 to 2 minutes).
  6. Turn-over and continue cooking until second side is light brown (1 to 2 minutes). Repeat with remaining tortillas. Refrigerate leftovers.
