  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line large rimmed baking sheet with foil or cooking parchment paper.
  2. In large bowl, mix frozen potatoes and taco seasoning mix until thoroughly coated. Place on baking sheet, and bake 10 minutes; stir. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until browned. Top with cheese; continue to bake for another 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  3. In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk and salt slightly with fork or whisk until well blended.
  4. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium heat just until it begins to sizzle and look hot. Add egg mixture. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist and creamy.
  5. Stuff tortilla pockets with cheesy potatoes, scrambled eggs and jalapeño slices.

Expert Tips

  • If you want to add a little extra heat to your breakfast tortilla pocket, try substituting Old El Paso™ Shredded 3 Pepper Cheese Blend for the Old El Paso™ Shredded Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend.
  • To avoid losing any cheese to the bottom of the baking sheet, arrange frozen potatoes closely together before adding the cheese.
  • Before buying eggs, open the carton and check that the eggs are clean and uncracked. Gently move each egg to be sure it hasn't cracked and stuck to the carton. If an egg cracks on the way home, throw it away.
