Top Breakfast Burrito Chorizo & Eggs

As a kid ever liked scramble eggs, to me they were tasteless  and dry. One morning I awoke to a Delicious, but unusual aroma flowing though the  house, which I followed  into the kitchen. There  our new housekeeper/babysitter was making breakfast for us kids.  Peering into the skillet and seeing strange color scramble eggs, my first thoughts were yuck! what's that I asked, The new babysitter/housekeeper, who's name is Rosa, answered "that's scramble eggs with chorizo". Try it you just might like it ,she said. and  convinced me to give the eggs a taste. Hum well I guess these strange eggs are not so bad. Rosa,was a great home cook, and in the time she spend with our family, she introduced  my taste buds to  lots of new flavors and dishes... I love chroizo with eggs and/or with potatoes,. especially like this breakfast burrito.  I make myself a  Breakfast burrito once or twice  a week.  Great because they er easy and quick to make, as well  very satisfying. Plus!   you can eat half for breakfast and then wrap up the other half and take for lunch.

Sever 4 and you'll need:
16 oz. Fresh Chorizo sausage,casting removed.
3 cups diced cooked red potatoes with onions and peppers,or frozen diced hash browns with onions and peppers.
8 large eggs.
3 tablespoons milk
1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
1/4 cup  chopped fresh Cilantro ( optional )
4 10 in. flour tortillas 
4 pieces of  foil  

In a large skillet cook chorizo over medium -high heat until meat crumbles and is lightly browned . With slotted spoon,  remove Chorizo from pan. Drain all but 2 tablespoons drippings from pan.Then return Chroizo to pan. Add potatoes, and cook stirring often for 10 to 15 min. or until lightly brown. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs and milk. add beaten egg mixture to skillet, and cook stirring occasionally 6-8 min. or until eggs are cooked.. Remove from heat, stir in cheese and cilantro. Place tortillas on a work surface. divide egg mixture evenly among tortillas.

    I love chorizo and eggs. So very yummy. I hadn't had them in years until last year when our staff went on a retreat and our boss and her husband made us chorizo breakfast burritos. No potatoes though. I like that. :) Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Oh good! I found you! And also apparently a great recipe! I happen to have all the ingredients right now - including the chorizo, so I think I'm just going to have breakfast-for-dinner tomorrow night!
