Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Whisk eggs and 2 tablespoons cilantro in medium bowl.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Add green onions and sauté 2 minutes.
  6. Add egg mixture and stir until very softly set, about 1 minute.
  7. Remove egg mixture from heat.
  8. Cook tortillas in skillet over high heat until beginning to crisp on bottom, but still soft and pliable, about 1 minute. Divide egg mixture among tortillas and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro. Fold each tortilla in half.
