Prepare potatoes:

  8. Remove from oven; season with additional salt, if desired. Set aside.
Prepare eggs:
  1. Add eggs to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then beat until frothy.
  2. As soon as potatoes are done, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Chop roasted jalapeno, discarding seeds, stem, and any skin that is peeling off.
  4. Add eggs and jalapeno to skillet; cook until eggs are scrambled, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
Assemble burritos:
  1. Place a tortilla on a large plate; microwave for 10 to 15 seconds, or until warm.
  2. Top tortilla with 1/4 of the eggs, cheese, and potatoes.
