Pre-cook the Potatoes in a Microwave:

  • Wash potatoes and prick with a knife. Place on a microwave-safe plate.
  • Cook the potatoes in the microwave for about 4-5 minutes. Remove and let them cool down for about 5 minutes before cutting into small pieces.

Pan-Fry Potatoes:

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium-to-large sized skillet.
  • Add potatoes, flipping and tossing them every 2-3 minutes to ensure even browning. Keep cooking until potatoes are crispy. Add salt/pepper to taste. Transfer to a plate.

Cook the Chorizo in a Skillet:

  • Add chorizo into a skillet, then stir and break it into small pieces. Cook for about 4-5 minutes or follow the cooking instructions on the product packaging or until color indicates it’s fully cooked, and transfer to a plate.

Scramble the Eggs:

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add eggs and milk with some salt and pepper if needed. Whisk until well blended. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until foamy.
  • Pour the egg mixture in. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs with a spatula, then continue cooking and pull, lift and fold the eggs. Continue cooking until the eggs are fully cooked.
  • Remove from the heat , transfer to a plate.

To assemble tacos:

  • Heat the tortillas in a skillet. Remove them and add generous amounts of potatoes, chorizo, and eggs.
  • Top with avocado, cilantro, tomatoes, Mexican cheese, salsa and red onion.
