Much like a pizza crust, a tortilla is a blank culinary canvas; there are hardly any rules for what you can and can't stuff inside it or pile on top of it. While some of the most-classic approaches are the fan-favorite taco or fajita, how you put those together is up to you. When it comes to making meatless fajitas, beans are surely a go-to pick, but when you want to try something new, look to eggs to bulk up the meal.

Ready to eat in only 30 quick minutes, Food Network Magazine's Cheesy Scrambled Egg Fajitas (pictured above) make for a hearty breakfast as well as a quick-fix dinner. Just like traditional fajitas, these feature tender sauteed peppers and onions, plus buttery scrambled eggs, which add welcome heft. Don't forget to add a decadent bite with Monterey Jack or pepper Jack cheese as the eggs finish cooking — it will slowly melt within minutes. Fill warm tortillas with the fluffy eggs, plus the colorful veggies, then top with a quick-fix combination of creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes and a jalapeno for subtle heat.
