Huevo con chorizo breakfast tacos

Tacos for breakfast? You bet. One of the staple breakfast dishes that I like to eat both when I’m visiting Mexico and at home is huevo con chorizo in the form of a breakfast taco. Literally, it’s just egg and chorizo, but don’t think something so simple can’t still be satisfying.

Most people know how to make this easy and tasty breakfast, but surprisingly I still sometimes get asked how to make huevo con chorizo. Here are my step-by-step photos taken over breakfast this past weekend in case you’re not familiar with this dish.


Cook the chorizo in a hot skillet. How much or how little is up to you. I usually make extra and save it to use during the rest of the week. Normally, I drain all the grease from the chorizo after it’s done cooking by placing it in a dish lined with paper towels. But with this dish, I like to use just a little bit of the grease for additional flavor. If you prefer to drain the chorizo completely, that’s OK.

Heat a second skillet and scramble some eggs. I suggest two eggs per person, which should make about three tacos. Add the scrambled eggs to the skillet and about 2-3 tablespoons of chorizo or more if you like. Scramble them up!

    I LOVE your blog!!! I’m pretty sure that I was Mexican at birth and somehow got switched with my German family hahaha. I have been devouring tacos and learning to make traditional dishes since I was 11 or 12 and one of my mom’s friends showed me how to make guacamole and salsa. I can’t believe I never made my own tortilla’s before, but I just finished a huge batch and I got the perfect air bubble at the end–my family loved them! I stumbled across your blog looking for more food ideas and I am in NWI =)
