Breakfast Burrito

breakfast burrito

There is nothing more satisfying than breakfast for dinner. Breakfast burritos are easy and fun to make. My secret to a successful yummy burrito is to take your flour tortillas and put them on a dinner plate each separated by a damp piece of paper towel, then microwave them for 2 to 3 minutes. This makes the tortillas warm and chewy. :) Do this step last then assemble your burrito.


Flour tortillas
2 cups of frozen cubed potatoes
9 eggs
1 pound of chicken chorizo, crumbled
1 small can of sliced jalapenos
2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 Tbs. butter
a splash of milk
salt and pepper


In a large non stick skillet on med high heat melt you butter. Add your frozen potatoes to the pan and cook until potatoes are golden brown, season with salt. Take your potatoes out of your pan and set aside. In a medium sauce pan crumble your chorizo until cooked through. The pan will still be buttery, you do not need to add more. Crack your eggs and beat then with a splash of milk and salt and pepper. Add them to your pan and scramble them. Grate your cheese and set aside. When your eggs are finished assemble your burritos to your liking. I like mine spicy so I add lots of jalapenos. This recipe makes 3 to 4 burritos.
