Category: Main Dish, Served Hot, Eggs, Cookies, Breakfast, Spanish, Meat, Mexican

 Ingredients List

  • 1 pound chorizo sausage
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 flour or corn tortillas
  • 1 medium onion - diced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves - chopped
  • 1 large avocado - mashed
  • your favorite salsa
  • 2 chilies (preferably Serrano) - finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil (optional)


In a dry pan, fry the chorizo until browned, breaking up the sausage with a fork as it cooks (Chorizo is darker in color than most sausages, so it will look nearly burnt when browned. You can also try roasting the chorizo in oil, but my preference is not to use oil, as the chorizo is naturally high in fat, which it drips when heated).

Cooking chorizo produces a lot of grease, so drain off any excess oil.

Add the onion and cook about 2 minutes until soft and translucent. If you have chilies, you can add them now and cook for an additional minute.

Beat the eggs until frothy and add to the chorizo. Stir the mix as you would to make scrambled eggs.

Fold the cilantro in just before eggs are completely set.

Warm tortillas in microwave or oven, or alternatively, place them, one at a time, flat in a large non-greased fry pan over medium heat for 20 seconds per side to warm and brown.

Serve the chorizo and egg mix with flour tortillas, fresh salsa, and mashed avocado.

This recipe makes 4 servings.
