Scrumptious Breakfast Burritos
- 2 plum tomatoes, diced
- 1 jalapeño, diced
- 1/2 small red onion, diced
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a small bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, diced jalapeño, diced onion, lime juice, and cilantro. Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper.
- 8 ounces Mexican chorizo with casings removed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups frozen and diced hash browns with onions and peppers (Ore-Ida Potatoes O’Brien)
- 8 large eggs
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 large flour tortillas
- 8 slices of Colby cheese
- 8 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
- 1 avocado, sliced
- hot sauce to taste
Add the Mexican chorizo to a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium-high heat. Break the chorizo up until it is cooked thoroughly, about 8-10 minutes. Remove it from the skillet and set it aside.
In the same skillet you used to cook the chorizo, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the hash browns. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp, about 8-10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until they are frothy. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over the hash browns and cook, stirring, until the eggs are cooked thoroughly, about 3-5 minutes. Remove the potato-and-egg mixture from the skillet and place it into a medium bowl. Cover with aluminum foil and set aside.
Wipe out the skillet and return it to the heat. Warm the tortillas one at a time in the skillet, about 1 minute each.
Place 2 slices of Colby cheese on each warm tortilla. Next, spoon a bit of potato-and-egg mixture, chorizo, and bacon down the middle of each tortilla.
Fold in the edges of each tortilla and roll it up tightly. Serve warm with pico de gallo, sliced avocado, and hot sauce. Enjoy!
Cook and chop your bacon prior to beginning. Prepare your bacon ahead of time in the oven!
These burritos can be frozen. Just wrap them in foil and place them in a Ziploc bag. To defrost, remove the foil, wrap the burrito in a damp paper towel, and microwave it for about 2 1/2 minutes.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately, that essential meal is not always convenient. Mornings can be horrifically hectic, and sitting down to a relaxing meal is not always a possibility. Grab-and-go options for breakfast are ideal, but let’s face it: sometimes the options are a little lackluster. That’s where our make-ahead breakfast options — especially our scrumptious breakfast burritos — come in! Our burritos reheat well and make a fantastic portable meal during the week. Say goodbye to toaster pastries and treat yourself to something delicious.
What To Add To Your Scrumptious Breakfast Burritos
These burritos are stuffed with plenty of amazing ingredients. However, there are a few ways to make them your own. You can add a bit more spice to your burrito, or you can cool it down, depending on what extras you throw in. Here are a few ideas:
- Serve with a side of sour cream.
- Replace the chorizo with chicken or chicken sausage for a leaner meal.
- Add taco seasoning.
- Add diced green chilis.
- Place more chopped jalapeño inside the burrito.
Many of the ingredients in these burritos are not suitable for all diets, but substitutions are available so that you can enjoy this delicious breakfast.
If you can’t eat dairy, you can omit the Colby cheese or substitute a dairy-free cheese such as Daiya’s cheddar.
Anyone who is unable to consume gluten can replace the flour tortillas with corn tortillas. Cross-contamination may occur during packaging, so be sure to check the label. You can also pick up tortillas made from gluten-free flour.
If you are vegan, you can replace the meat with portobello mushrooms, and you can use Daiya cheese slices in place of shredded Colby cheese. Use VeganEgg to replace the eight eggs in the recipe. Corn tortillas are usually vegan-friendly.
These breakfast burritos are a hearty way to start your day. Once you’ve tasted them, you’ll never look at breakfast the same way!
