After I make Homemade Corn Tortillas (see recipe below), I can’t think of anything better to do with them than to make Breakfast Tacos! These little things are addictive, yummy, and a nice break from the norm. It’s a wonderful breakfast to serve when you have out-of-town guests. Who would expect Breakfast Tacos??!! Serve with fresh fruit on the side.
And that my friends, makes for a great way to start your day!!
Makes about 10-12 tacos
1 lb Chorizo sausage
2 tbsp vegetable oil
12 oz diced potatoes (I use the packaged diced Simply Potatoes w/ onions which is sold in the refrigerated section)
2 tbsp butter
Shredded monterey jack cheese
Crema– (depending on where you live, you can probably get this at your local grocery store, it would be located near the sour cream, or by the mexican cheeses. If it’s not in your grocery store, it would definitely be at your local latin food market. You can pick it up when you go buy your comal and tortilla press , to make your homemade tortillas! If you don’t have a latin food market near you, and they don’t sell crema in your local grocery store, then sour cream will do)
Mexican hot sauce
Heat a large skillet to med-high heat and brown the Chorizo sausage, moving the sausage around the pan often. Once browned, put aside. Wipe out the pan and add the vegetable oil. Once the oil has heated up, add the potatoes in a single layer. Season with the southwest seasoning. Do not disturb the potatoes and let them brown. Once browned, turn to brown the other sides. Try to get them crisp all over. After browning on all sides, add the Chorizo back into the pan and toss to mix with the potatoes, and keep warm with the setting on medium-low.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs. In another skillet, melt the butter (if using), then add the eggs and scramble. When they are almost set, add the eggs to the skillet with the sausage and potato mixture, and incorporate.
Take a corn tortilla and top it off with the delicious concoction you just created. Finish off your taco with a sprinkling of the monterey jack cheese, crema and hot sauce.
