Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo

Breakfast Burrito with ChorizoA Long Time Ago, in a Burrito Far, Far Away…

When I was twelve years old, I thought that the Breakfast Burrito was the best thing that ever happened to me.  Who came up with this Dreamy Piece of heaven to go, Right; Perfectly scrambled eggs and sausage with cheese.  Are you kidding?  Those 3 simple ingredients, wrapped in a Tortilla with love and POOF, the Breakfast Burrito was born.  Now, you can put whatever you want in it.  It doesn’t really matter.  Today, we’re going to make a Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo.

A few simple things you should know.  Chorizo can be bought several different ways.  First of all, you can buy either pork or beef Chorizo.  And yes this does change the flavor.  So you can either go with your favorite, or trust me when I tell you I use pork when I mix it with eggs.  Secondly, there is a Mexican version and a Spanish version of Chorizo.  Now that might sound the same to some of you but I’m telling you there’s a difference.  One is a little smoother than the other, and I choose to use the Mexican version for this Breakfast Burrito.

Breakfast Burrito Ingredients are:

1 X-Large Flour Tortilla
6 oz Chorizo
3 eggs
1 tbs butter

Everything below should be your desired amount

Some Bell Pepper or Jalapeno
Green Chilis
Scallions
Nacho Cheese (Or your favorite)
Cilantro

Cook the Chorizo thoroughly before adding vegetables and eggs.  Then add each ingredient but save the Cilantro for last.  Once everything is mixed together, add the Nacho Cheese and set aside to cool.  Meanwhile, heat the tortilla then add the filling and roll a Breakfast Burrito.  Sear both sides on medium heat and serve.

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
