2 cups chopped onions

1 Tbsp. olive oil

4 eggs

4 egg whites

1 cup chopped tomatoes

¼ cup chopped cilantro or parsley

¼ tsp. black pepper

Stack tortillas; wrap in foil. Heat in 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, saute onions in oil over medium heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Beat eggs, egg whites, tomatoes, cilantro and black pepper together in bowl with fork. Pour over onions and cook on medium heat, stirring with spatula until scrambled, about 6 minutes. Divide egg mixture onto warm tortillas. Roll tortillas around the egg mixture, tucking in ends to prevent filling from falling out. Serve with salsas and sour cream or yogurt.
