Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Tacos

Breakfasts are always tough for me. I hate to wake up early, and I’m usually better when I can grab and go. I love Chorizo and egg breakfast tacos for that reason!

Chorizo and egg breakfast tacos are good for a few reasons. They’re a great macro balance of protein, fats, and carbs, and they’re also so pretty and colorful.

I also like breakfasts that will fill me up for the morning – especially when I have to take a ton of meetings, or I don’t have access to snacks.

Making Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Tacos

 

Depending on how much time you have, you can cook the chorizo and eggs together. Chorizo is smokey and salty so it pairs great with the eggs. Chorizo sometimes comes ground, but mine came in a link so I chopped it into bite-sized pieces for the tacos.

Corn tortillas also paired best with these tacos. They’re strong and give each taco a good structure. I add cilantro, and cheese is also an option too – Mexican crema or cotija! Either are great.

And then finally, the lime! A little spritz of lime makes these just perfect!
