Chorizo Breakfast Tacos

Isn’t Brunch food just the best? These tacos are perfect for feeding a crowd on a late Sunday morning. The recipe below makes 6 tacos, but you can very easily double or triple it to make a big batch. The salsa can be made in advance too (I’d actually say that it’s better if you make it up the night before). Dish your chorizo eggs up in a big serving bowl, lay out bowls of salsa, avocado sauce and all the taco extras like cheese and hot sauce and let everyone assemble their own.

  • Non stick frying pan


  • 150 gram cooking chorizo
  • 5 free range eggs
  • 6 6-inch tortillas

For the Salsa

  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 150 gram cherry tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ a lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh coriander or sub ½ tsp dried

Avocado Sauce

  • 1 whole ripe avocado
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pinch chilli flakes optional
  • 1 tsp greek yoghurt or sour cream optional

To Serve

  • Grated Cheese Cheddar or Mozzarella work best
  • Your favourite Hot Sauce


  • Prepare the salsa by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and mixing well. This can be made up to 24 hours in advance, and actually improves in taste as time passes – I would recommend leaving it for at least 20 minutes before eating.
  • For the avocado sauce, scoop out you avocado flesh and blend with the lime juice, salt, and optional chilli flakes, either in a food processor or with a stick blender. Season to taste. You could also add a spoonful of yoghurt or crema to make it super creamy.
  • Warm you tortillas according to packet instructions, then get everything ready to serve the tacos before you start cooking the chorizo and eggs – you want to serve them straightaway.
  • Peel the skins from the cooking chorizo and dice into small chunks.
  • Add to a frying pan over a medium to high heat (no need for oil) and cook for about 5 minutes, until you see the chorizo start to brown slightly – it will also release lots of flavourful oil.
  • Whisk the eggs together and season with salt and pepper, then turn the heat down on your pan slightly and pour the eggs over the chorizo.
  • Gently mix the eggs and chorizo as they cook. When the eggs are almost done to your liking, take the pan off the heat – the eggs will continue to cook a little afterwards.
  • Assemble your tacos – spread some avocado cream on each tortilla, spoon some of the chorizo and egg mix on top then sprinkle with a spoonful of the salsa. Optional extra toppings include grated cheese and a drizzle of hot sauce or sour cream.
