Street-Style Breakfast Tacos

Hello, welcome! There are three things we always have on hand, in the fridge; eggs, Mexican chorizo and corn tortillas. And it just so happens that the combination of these three items makes a perfect breakfast. Easy, quick and delicious, these simple Street-Style Breakfast Tacos can be topped with onions and cilantro. You can toss on some cheese, if you like. Today, I am going with a little Mexican crema and hot sauce. Let’s get to it!

If you haven’t cooked with Mexican chorizo before, it’s more of a paste; a sausage without a casing. I am starting with about 4 ounces of chorizo. In a nonstick pan over medium heat, cook the chorizo, breaking it up as it cooks.

As the chorizo is cooking, whisk thee eggs together until well-combined.

Set a separate, large pan on a separate burner on medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once the oil is beginning to shimmer, place three corn tortillas in the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low.

When the pieces of chorizo are smaller and darker in color, reduce the burner heat to medium-low and pour the whisked eggs into the pan with the cooked chorizo. Stir constantly until the eggs are cooked through and remove from heat.

Flip the tortillas and remove from heat as soon as they begin to become pliable and slightly toasted.

        Hi Kelly! I made these and they were delicious. Such a nice change of pace for breakfast! I used La Banderita Carb Counter street taco tortillas as we are limiting carbs.
