Chorizo Breakfast Tacos ~ Soft scrambled eggs mixed with chorizo and vegetables, then stuffed into a corn tortilla with beans. Topped with some salsa, pico de gallo and cheese. This is a breakfast dish you won’t want to miss!
This recipe is a family favorite in my home. Before we get to this recipe though, let’s talk breakfast. What type of breakfast person are you?
Are you a sit down, big meal type or a grab and go. In our house it’s changing daily. Sometimes we’ll grab a granola bar, have a bowl of cereal or maybe even some fruit. But we all know when it’s dad’s day off, we’ll have a big breakfast at least once.
A big breakfast can be anything from a frittata, breakfast sandwiches, waffles with strawberry syrup, or these yummy chorizo breakfast tacos. I especially love these breakfast tacos because I’m obsessed with Mexican food. Like seriously obsessed. I could eat it every day and never be sick of it obsessed. But no matter what we’re eating for breakfast, the fact that we’re sitting down with as a family is the best part.
Being with the family and creating memories is what it’s all about. But the food does make it so much better huh? These tacos are pretty easy to whip up on a weekend morning. And they taste great the next day as leftovers.
When I made these tacos I threw some fresh veggies in with the eggs. I just love the taste and crunch of fresh veggies. Also you could use whatever tortillas you want, but there are something about the corn tortillas that don’t leave you feeling full and over stuffed. The chorizo makes the dish come together perfectly too. In fact just writing this post, I’m now craving a few Chorizo Breakfast Tacos.
