Chorizo Egg Tacos

chorizo egg tacos easy breakfast recipes

If you are looking for delicious easy breakfast recipes to make this upcoming week, check out these chorizo egg tacos.  They are made of simple ingredients and are so quick to make, even on a hectic weekday morning!  I served the chorizo eggs on store-bought corn tortillas, for those of you who have a little more time making them from scratch is always tastier.

I purchased the chorizo from my local store.  Since it has been previously seasoned and had the salt already added, I minimize the amount of extra seasoning during my prep and cooking. To make the cooking process go a little bit faster I cooked the potatoes in the microwave (with skin) for about 4-5 minutes.

chorizo egg tacos easy breakfast recipesI have tried vegetarian chorizo as a meat alternative and some of the brands out there do a pretty good job.  It all comes down to having the right mix of spices and whether they nail that authentic taste.  You can find options in both tofu and tempeh varieties.  Tofu as a whole is much more popular here in America but in Asia, there are a lot more tempeh dishes.  I am personally a big fan of the harder consistency but it’s not for everyone.

With the avocado and tomatoes, this dish is another healthy dish that I’m proud to share with you.  For those of you on a health-watch you can of course use only the egg whites.  With all of the other flavors going on here there’s no lack of taste so the yolks won’t be as missed as they are in some other dishes.

I hope you enjoy this simple chorizo egg tacos recipe! Also check out this easy vegan taco recipe  and this fresh mango salsa recipe!
