Simplifying your Morning Routines with El Monterey Burritos

Simplifying your Morning Routines with El Monterey Burritos


Getting the kids up and out the door is a challenge for us, especially with daylight savings and it being dark on our way to the bus stop. The success of our morning routine depends on many factors, both parental and the kids. How do you simplify your morning routine comes down to breakfast as well. My kids love breakfast burritos  and when I don’t have the time to make and freeze my own, I keep a stash of El Monterey breakfast burritos in the freezer. A priorty of mine is using real ingredients and filling my kids with a wholesome breakfast before they start a busy day at school.



Found in the breakfast freezer area of our store,  El Monterey Signature Breakfast Burritos are packed with real ingredients like scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and sausage wrapped in fresh-baked flour tortillas. They are available in five flavors and three different sizes, including single-serve, 4-count and 12-count. The products can be found in the freezer aisles at major retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Kroger, Hy-Vee, Meijer and many more. Before you head out , grab this $1 off coupon for any multi-pack of Signature breakfast burritos.


You can find a variety of flavors to meet your kids tastes such as

Not only do the El Monterey breakfast burittos come in a variety of flavors, the kids can heat them up in the microwave by themselves and have breakfast in less than 2 minutes. The same amount of time it takes to pour a bowl of cereal. #MomWins


We served up our breakfast burittos with a side of fruit and a glass of orange juice or milk. It will satisfy their hunger and stay with them longer than a bowl of sugary cereal. I was impressed my husband has also had a couple of these as he headed out the door to church and the airport.


How do you prepare for the hectic morning transition? Here is my list of ideal steps to take to make the school day morning smoother I do about 3 a night 🙁


  1. Prepare lunches night before
  2. Set Up coffee maker
  3. Start Dishwasher before bed
  4. Kids back packs, bags packed for next day
  5. Clothes laid out before bed
  6. Write any notes to teacher for playdates, Dr. Appts.
  7. Double check the calendar for any special school events
  8. Set alarm 30 minutes earlier than the kids wake up to feed dog, start coffee and unload dishwasher
  9. Have nutrient dense and easy to prepare breakfast items
