If you’ve got 15 minutes, you can whip up these easy and delicious Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Tacos with avocado, scallion and cilantro.


Looking for an easy, fast breakfast that’s anything but boring?

Look no further than these Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Tacos. Easy enough for a weekday breakfast, yet sophisticated enough to serve for a Sunday brunch, these tacos are on the table in just 15 minutes, and sure to wake up your tastebuds.

I love to make these tacos for my boyfriend and I on Sunday mornings, or for my girlfriends for one of our Ladies’ brunch get-togethers. They are so easy to pull together but taste incredible. I have yet to serve them to someone who didn’t enjoy them!

The chorizo is spicy and flavorful, and is perfectly complimented by the savory cheddar, creamy avocado, bite of scallion and herby freshness of cilantro. Add a little hot sauce and pile everything high on a charred corn tortilla and breakfast is served.

These tacos couldn’t be any easier- just cook and crumble chorizo, add eggs and cheese and serve on charred tortillas with your favorite toppings. My favrite tortillas are these wheat and corn variety from Trader Joe’s.

Keyword: avocado, breakfast tacos, cheddar, chorizo, eggs, scrambled eggs, tacos
Servings: 4


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 chorizo sausage links (about 3 oz)
  • 4 large or jumbo eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • fresh cilantro leaves and hot sauce, for serving
  • 10 corn tortillas, charred


  • In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat, about 1-2 minutes.
    2. Add sausage, breaking/crumbling with a wooden spoon as you go, until evenly cooked and browned, about 4-5 minutes.
    3. Reduce heat to low and add whisked eggs. Scramble until just set, about 2 minutes.
    4. Sprinkle cheese evenly over eggs and cook over medium heat until melty and slightly browned, about 2 minutes.

To Char Tortillas

  • Heat a gas stove burner on medium high and place corn tortilla directly on the burner. Watch carefully and flip with tongs once the tortilla begins to brown/bubble (this will be FAST). Once both sides are charred, remove to a serving platter and repeat with remaining tortillas.

To Serve

  • Serve with cubed avocado, sliced scallion, cilantro leaves and your favorite hot sauce
