A spicy Mexican breakfast made with chorizo and scrambled eggs served over warmed corn tortillas, topped with avocado, crema and hot sauce.

You can give me Huevos con Chorizo any day of the week. I will eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night snack…anytime!

This very simple Mexican breakfast recipe needs no complication because, like most Mexican food, the simple combination is perfect on its own. It takes very little time to prepare – heck, it took me longer to roast the jalapenos and chop the ingredients – so if you’re in a hurry or just plain starving, this might be your new go-to dish.

Spicy chorizo is the way to go, but if you’d like to lower some of that heat, you can purchase milder chorizo.

Once the chorizo is cooked up, the eggs cook up in very little time. Keep them moist. You don’t want to dry out the eggs too much, though that would be difficult with the fat content of the chorizo, which is AWESOME, by the way.

Toppings are really based on your preference, though I prefer roasted jalapeno peppers, a bit of cheese and crema, cilantro, and of course, diced avocado, though in Mexican restaurants, I’ll usually just get them plain and load them up on their homemade sauces.

Oh yes, don’t forget the hot sauce! An absolute must! If you don’t have your favorite hot sauce on hand, try making some of our homemade hot sauces.
