  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet with first portion of oil over medium heat. Add sausage to heated oil. Cook sausage until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and cover to keep warm.

  2. Wipe out the skillet and return it to the stove. Reduce heat to medium-low and add second portion of oil. Add spinach to heated oil and cook until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Pour eggs into skillet and fold together with spinach. Scramble gently until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Warm tortillas according to package directions.

  5. Set tortillas out on a clean surface. Fill each tortilla with eggs, spinach, sausage, and cheese. Top burrito filling with some salsa if you’d like or reserve it for dipping.
