Preheat the oven 375 degrees F.
Warm tortillas over your stove burner (a little scorching adds to the flavor and personality) set aside. Place in a tea towel or napkin to keep them warm.
In a saute pan over medium high heat, saute the onion and garlic in the oil for 1 minute.
Add the egg whites and cook until the eggs are cooked through, approximately 3 minutes. Place 2 tablespoons of the egg mixture in lower part of each tortilla and roll them up.
For lunch or as an appetizer, toast them in a dry saute pan over medium low heat until toasty, roll them on the other side and toast. Pop it on a plate and serve with salsa.
For dinner, lightly spray oven-proof dish with vegetable spray and carefully place the wraps seam side down. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake on the center rack in the oven for 20 minutes or until the wraps are very hot.
