Ingredients

Egg and Chorizo Filling:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 links chorizo sausage, casing removed approx. 200 grams
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 small flour or corn tortillas

Tomato Salsa:

  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tbsp lime juice from 1/2 lime

Additional Toppings:

  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 1/4 small cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream if desired
  • 1/4 cup grated jack cheese or crumbled feta if desired

Instructions

Egg and Chorizo Filling:

  1. Cook chorizo over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, breaking meat with a wooden spoon, until meat is crumbled, crispy and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, crack eggs into a medium bowl and whisk with salt until yolks are blended through.

  3. Heat a medium sauce pan to medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Add whisked eggs and cook for 7-10 minutes, whisk or stir using a small fork every 1-2 minutes until eggs are starting to lump, but remain a touch runny, for approximately 10 minutes. The eggs will firm up quickly.

Tomato Salsa:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together tomatoes, onion, cilantro, salt, and lime juice.

Assembly:

  1. On a flour tortilla add eggs, crumbled chorizo, salsa and additional garnishes if desired.
