Chorizo Potato Breakfast Tacos

Chorizo Potato Breakfast Tacos

Whenever I workout in the morning I crave protein in a big way, and a bowl of yogurt will not do the trick.  I immediately dash home, make coffee, kiss Lenny, shower and then whip up breakfast.  A favorite protein rich breakfast are tacos, especially these chorizo potato breakfast tacos.

Ingredients

  • Whenever I workout in the morning I crave protein in a big way, and a bowl of yogurt will not do the trick.  I immediately dash home, make coffee, kiss Lenny, shower and then whip up breakfast.  A favorite protein rich breakfast are tacos, especially these chorizo potato breakfast tacos.
  • Breakfast tacos are so easy to make, as well they are incredibly versatile.  Our breakfast tacos usually are made with whatever leftovers are in the fridge, such as precooked beans, lentils or roasted vegetables.  Very so often,  I toss in some meat, such as chorizo.  Chorizo just happens to be a staple in this Portuguese/Basque home.  We even have a chorizo section in the freezer;  yes, we are weird.
  • When I get a hunkering for these tacos, I usually precook some fingerling potatoes the night before, to make breakfast quick and easy.  Fingerlings are great because they are small, cook quickly, and you do not need too many of them of fill up your tortillas.  While the chorizo is cooking, I make up a little salsa out of cilantro, onion and lime juice, as it adds a lovely freshness to the tacos, and puts that morning skip in your day!
