Chorizo Breakfast Tacos

These chorizo and egg breakfast tacos are packed with so much flavor. Delicious Mexican chorizo, soft scrambled eggs, and lots of toppings on a warm flour tortilla. So good and easy to make!


  • ¼ cup diced white onions
  • 12 ounces ground Mexican chorizo (raw) – removed from casings if needed
  • Olive oil, for pan – for pan
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 soft flour tortillas – taco size


  • Diced tomatoes
  • Diced white onions
  • Finely chopped cilantro
  • Avocado slices
  • Shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Lime wedges
  • Diced jalapeños – optional


  • Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Add the ¼ cup of diced onions and cook until slightly browned. Add the chorizo and cook until browned and fully cooked through, breaking it apart with a spatula. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk eggs with heavy cream, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir in the ¼ cup of shredded cheese and combine.
  • Wipe skillet clean. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over LOW heat (important: soft scrambled eggs should be cooked over low heat). Add the egg mixture. When the edges start to set, swipe a rubber spatula across the skillet, creating large soft curds (the uncooked parts will flood to the center and cook). Repeat a few times each time it sets a bit, until soft and fluffy. Note: They will continue cooking from residual heat.
  • Warm up the tortillas: Arrange tortillas on a plate in one single layer (slightly overlapping) and microwave for 30-60 seconds until warm. Note: If using corn tortillas, place a damp paper towel on top, and microwave.

To assemble the tacos, place some cooked chorizo and scrambled eggs on the tortillas, and add the toppings. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
