Chorizo and Scrambled Egg Breakfast Tacos

I love tacos, burritos or anything that resembles them.:) So having them for breakfast is really fun for me. This recipe was from Bon Appetit and very easy to make.

If you can't find tortillas, use corn chips. Just line the dish with it and then add the rest on top. This is especially fun if you eat with your hands:)

Try not to skip the sour cream and the salsa, it definitely completes the meal.

If you can't find chorizo you can use andouille sausages to have some spice. And it's a good idea to pour the grease off the pan before adding the eggs, otherwise it becomes too fatty.

CHORIZO AND SCRAMBLED EGG BREAKFAST TACOS

Ingredients:

4 corn tortillas
1 cup grated extra-sharp white cheddar cheese
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, divided
7 ounces fresh chorizo sausage, casing removed if necessary
4 green onions, sliced
Sour cream (optional)
Hot sauce or salsa (optional)

Directions:
Brush large nonstick skillet with olive or vegetable oil. Char tortillas over gas flame or directly on electric burner until blackened in spots, turning with tongs.

Arrange tortillas in single layer in skillet. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 cup grated cheese and set aside.

Whisk eggs and 2 tablespoons cilantro in medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Sauté chorizo sausage in heavy medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, breaking up with back of spoon, about 5 minutes. Add green onions and sauté 2 minutes. Add egg mixture and stir until very softly set, about 1 minute. Remove egg mixture from heat.

Cook tortillas in skillet over high heat until beginning to crisp on bottom, but still soft and pliable, about 1 minute. Divide egg mixture among tortillas and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro. Fold each tortilla in half. Serve with sour cream and hot sauce, if desired.
