I know I use chorizo sausage in a lot of my recipes. And I know I’ve probably said that to you before haven’t I?

But seriously folks with chorizo sausage you get a whole load of flavour for such a little cost.

Not just that; because chorizo sausage releases it’s delicious oily flavours literally straight away into the pan on heating, you don’t need to use any additional oil. So you’re saving on additional calories too.

The released chorizo oil is then perfect for cooking your onions, mushrooms and eggs in, as they all absorb that tasty oil. Yum! 😀

Now, Lady Lynne and I like a bit of heat in our chorizo and egg breakfast burritos. Of course that’s a personal choice, and if not yours, and you’d prefer less or no heat then just leave out the green chilli.

Tips For Making These Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Burritos

  • The chorizo sausage will quickly release it’s oils on heating so don’t leave the pan alone. Keep stirring it round so you don’t burn it.
  • If you want a quick tutorial on how to wrap a breakfast burrito properly, I found this Huffington Post article the best one to explain it to me.
  • Why not double up the amount of burritos you make when cooking, and take the one’s you don’t eat for breakfast with you when you go out for the day as a packed lunch to save money instead of eating out?

Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Burritos Recipe

This is such an easy breakfast burrito recipe. Remember, you can also freeze these too. Just wrap them tightly in grease proof paper and freeze.

When you want to eat them, move them from the freezer to the fridge first of all, then once thawed just pop them into the microwave to re-heat.

Ingredients
  • Spray oil
  • 200 g chorizo sausage skin removed and chopped.
  • Small red onion chopped
  • 1 green chilli de-seeded and diced
  • 100 g button mushrooms sliced
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 60 g low fat grated cheese
  • 2 large corn tortillas
Instructions
  1. Spray a large pan with the cooking oil spray and place the pan over a medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped chorizo and cook and stir until browned but not burnt and the juices have been released into the pan, about 3 mins.
  3. Add the onion and cook for another 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the chilli pepper and button mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Whilst the vegetables are cooking mix the eggs in a bowl with the seasoning.
  6. When the vegetables are cooked add the egg mixture to the pan and cook over a low heat stirring every now and then to scramble them and cook them. This should only take 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat.
  8. Lay the tortillas out and divide the filling between them making sure you keep the filling in the centre and then sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
  9. Pull the bottom half of the burrito over to meet the top half. Then, pull the tortilla back. This will form the filling into a roll. Next, fold one side in and then the other side.
  10. With both ends folded, tightly roll your tortilla until you have a perfect, beautiful burrito. Cut in half and serve hot.

  1. I love breakfast burritos, it is such a delicious change form a sandwich or cereal. The combination of chorizo and egg sounds amazing. I would love to try out this breakfast.
    Haha, my son got wrapping a burrito down to perfection, so that will definitely be his part in making this breakfast. I don’t trust myself, I am way too impatient resulting in everything falling out of the burrito.😂
    Thank you for sharing…hope that you are having a great week 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I agree with you completely Ashika. Breakfast Burritos make such a change from having cereal all week (in our case porridge). We can’t wait for the weekend to have something different, just like these! 🙂

      And that’s great that you’ve already got your son prepared and trained to do all the Burrito wrapping. Ha ha! 😆

  2. These breakfast burritos are very tempting and such a great breakfast option. I am kind of bored eating oatmeal all week long. Time for a delicious switch. Thanks for this recipe and idea Neil.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I know that feeling of being bored eating oatmeal all week long Neha. It’s just that oatmeal is convenient isn’t it, to take to work and quickly make up?

      However, hopefully I’ve made these Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Burritos super easy so that not only can they be made at the weekend, but during the week, and even can be made for lunch too! 😀

  3. You really are the kind of chorizo, Neil! But I totally understand what you mean about how chorizo packs a strong flavor punch with just a little bit. I’m a huge fan of breakfast foods, and I enjoy a good breakfast burrito. I also love the idea of making extras here and then saving them for an easy lunch! I really could eat breakfast food for every meal of the day…especially when it’s in burrito or taco form! 🙂

      I am a bit obsessed with Chirizo David aren’t I? Ha ha! I mean even yesterday when I was browsing through some recipe books, I was thinking “that would go well with Chorizo” and “I bet Chorizo would add a wonderful flavour to that”……

      I know what you mean about being a fan of breakfast foods though. I’d happily eat the same for breakfast, lunch and dinner too! 😀

  4. Lovely. Unfortunately I can’t get decent chorizo unless I order it, which I should do soon. The one I can get locally is more of a Mexican and it’s very greasy, soft, and therefore can’t be chopped.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Mimi. That’s a shame you can’t get a decent chorizo locally. Still, ordering one to make this will certainly be worthwhile. 🙂
