18 flour tortillas

1 pound breakfast sausage 

1/3 stick (about 2 1/2 tablespoons) salted butter 

18 large eggs 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1 tablespoon hot sauce, plus more for serving 

1/4 of a 16-ounce jar jalapenos plus liquid from the jar, plus more jalapenos for serving 

3 cups grated cheese 

Salsa, for serving 


  1. Wrap the flour tortillas in paper towels and microwave them for 1 minute to make them pliable. Set them aside.
  2. Crumble the sausage finely into a large skillet over a medium heat and cook until brown, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add the butter to a large nonstick skillet over a medium heat. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with the salt and pepper. Stir in the hot sauce, jalapenos and a splash of jalapeno juice. When the butter has melted, turn the heat to low and pour in the eggs, then add the sausage. Slowly cook the mixture, using a wooden spatula to push it around the skillet, until the eggs are totally cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Place approximately 1/2 cup of the egg and sausage mixture into a warm tortilla, then add a pinch of cheese and roll up (do not tuck in the ends). Wrap in a foil square and keep warm until ready to serve. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve with more hot sauce, jalapenos and salsa.
