Chorizo with Eggs

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we also know tacos are one of the most important food groups. So today we’ll be combining the two.

I’ve previously shared my recipe for chorizo and potato. There are so many ways to eat that dish and here’s one more.

Chorizo and Eggs with Potato

If you want to give your chorizo and eggs extra flavor you can mix in bite-size pieces of boiled potato. This not only give another level of flavor and texture, but it also stretches the dish further — perfect for those needing a budget friendly meal.

Mexican Chorizo Not Spanish

In this chorizo with eggs or chorizo con huevo — of course we are referring to Mexican chorizo, not the Spanish type. Additionally, of course, it’s vegan chorizo we want to use here.

Please note that Spanish chorizo is very different than the Mexican kind. You don’t want to swap them in this or any other Mexican recipe.

Spanish chorizo is a cured red sausage, whereas Mexican is a loose meat sausage spiced with chiles, spices and other ingredients.

Delicious Mexican Breakfast

Chorizo con huevo is a very common Mexican breakfast. In my house we eat it usually at least once a week.

It’s one of my favorite ways to start the day and I think it can become one of yours too.

We love to pair it with refried beans, a yummy homemade salsa, some warm tortillas and a strong cup of coffee. It’s a great and filling way to start the day.

It’s really quite simple to make this dish, and if you’ve previously made just chorizo con papas, then all that you do is heat up any leftovers and mix in some lightly beaten eggs.

Then you heat up some tortillas and you’ve got yourself a hearty breakfast that will leave you full for hours.

Step #1: Sauté Onion & Garlic

Step #5: Serve

Now you’re ready to serve! Serve on warm corn or flour tortillas. You can add some homemade refried beans on the side, and definitely serve some salsa verde. Enjoy!

How to Make It Vegan

Taking a vegetarian dish and making it vegan is actually quite easy. Specially in the case of savory egg dishes, because we can swap them out for tofu or an egg replacer like Just Egg.

When I want to make vegan chorizo with eggs I take silken tofu, drain it then roughly chop it up.

I add it at the same time as the potatoes and stir until everything is well incorporated. Then allow too cook for about 8 minutes. You want to taste it before serving and add salt if desired.
