These breakfast tacos are easy, delicious, and so much better than oatmeal!
I think I’m on a mission to add tater tots to all possible breakfast items. When it comes to crispy potato snacks, tater tots always beat fries in my book. Are you with me?? Maybe? Either way, you are going love these breakfast tacos. These are easy, delicious, and feel like a special weekend breakfast. The spiciness of the chorizo really complements both the eggs and the tater tots. And wrapping it all up into a perfect little breakfast taco makes it so much more exciting. Feel free to substitute vegetarian sausage if you don’t eat pork, but I’d suggest adding some garlic and heat to mimic the chorizo. You should also feel free to add in whatever toppings you’d like. I thought the lettuce, sour cream, scallions, and cilantro worked well, but you could also add avocado, pickled onions, cherry peppers, or anything else you can think of.
There’s just something so fun about eating tacos for breakfast, am I right? These were easy to make for just the two of us, but would also be easy to scale up for a crowd. Just make a big batch of the chorizo eggs and a large batch of tater tots and have everyone assemble their own tacos, breakfast taco bar style. Maybe pair it with a brunch cocktail and your day will be off to the BEST start. Sounds like something I should try next weekend!
Breakfast tacos with eggs, chorizo, and tater tots
Makes: 2-3 servings
- 6 oz Mexican chorizo
- 4 eggs
- 1 TBSP milk
- 2 cups frozen tater tots
- 5-6 small corn tortillas
- 2 leaves of lettuce, chopped
- scallions, cilantro, sour cream for topping
Cook tater tots according to package instructions. For me this was 20 minutes at 400 F.
Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium high heat. Remove the casing from the chorizo and heat in the pan until cooked through. Use a spoon to break up the chorizo. Reduce the heat to medium and then add the egg mixture and cook until eggs are scrambled.
Heat the tortillas on the stovetop or microwave and then fill with lettuce, eggs and chorizo, tater tots, and top with scallions, cilantro and sour cream as desired.
