Breakfast Tacos Recipe


Tacos are great for dinner so why not make them for breakfast? These breakfast tacos are perfect if you want to spice things up for breakfast. The best part is, they are extremely easy to make, and fans of Mexican food will love them. These tacos combine chorizo sausage, scrambled eggs, cheese and salsa. Chorizo sausage is fairly spicy, so those who do not enjoy spicy foods will probably not care for this recipe.  The hot sauce is totally optional but would be great if you want to add even more heat to the tacos. Enjoy.

Ingredients:
6 ounces chorizo sausage
8 small flour tortillas (or corn tortillas)
6 eggs
¼ cup milk
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
1 dash hot pepper sauce (optional)
½ cup salsa

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, crumble the chorizo sausage into the skillet and cook and stir until fully cooked. Remove from heat. Heat another large skillet to medium heat. Lightly spray the skillet with cooking spray. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour the eggs into the skillet. Cook and stir until almost firm. Add the sausage and continue cooking and stirring until firm. Remove from heat.
Step 2: Heat tortillas according to package directions. (Stove top or in the microwave).
Step 3: To make tacos- sprinkle shredded cheese on each tortillas. Top with the scrambled egg and sausage mixture, add hot pepper sauce (if using), and top with salsa.
(Makes 4 Servings)

    This brought to mind another special breakfast recipe that I like to make often – my husband and I honeymooned in Maine and at a restaurant there, I had a chili cheese omlett for the first time. It was love at first bite. I like it best served with sour cream. =0)

    I like the soy chorizo at Trader Joe’s its great. Sometimes it hard to find good chorizo.

    Mmmm…. I love chorizo and eggs! I’ve always done this with potatoes in a burrito, but tacos sound great, too! Thanks kjH for the tip on TJ’s, I’ve been having a hard time finding Mexican chorizo since leaving the southwest (only finding Portuguese, which is more solid, like kielbasa).
