Mexican Breakfast Taco

Ok, my Mexican breakfast taco is about the most unauthentic Mexican breakfast dish ever made. But it’s actually quite tasty and it even looks pretty good. This is my take on a breakfast burrito. Chorizo and eggs are two of my favorite things. Specially if we’re talking spicy chorizo. Make sure you use Mexican chorizo. Spanish or Portuguese chorizo is a totally different thing.

You can use hard or soft taco shells. I prefer the hard ones since they give a nice crunchy contrast to the texture of the eggs and the toppings. You can do whatever you want with your Mexican breakfast taco!
