Cook the sausages until golden brown.

Add the sausages and bell pepper into the whisked eggs and mix them.
Pour the mixture into the same baking dish you put sausages in at the beginning.

Halfway through cooking, sprinkle half of pepper jack cheese on the mixture and mix it.

Lay the tortillas on a clean flat surface, divide the egg mixture onto them by placing the mixture lengthwise considering the tortillas will be wrapped in cylindrical shape, and put the remaining pepper jack cheese on top.
Wrap tortillas over filling forming a cylindrical shape. You may consider sealing the bottom by folding the tortilla over the filling to prevent it from falling while eating.
