Breakfast tacos are here to make your morning shine! Soft and cheesy scrambled egg, smoky chorizo and crispy onions all folded into a soft tortilla.
I love making fancy breakfasts. Normally when I'm meal planning I'll focus on dinner recipes but every now and then I'm in the mood to make something really special for breakfast.
Whether it's a big pan of chorizo shakshuka or a quinoa breakfast bowl I don't like to do my breakfast by halves, especially when they're just begging to be tucked into on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee in front of the TV.
These breakfast tacos are the ultimate Saturday morning breakfast!
I am so in love with these tacos. I think they're one of the best breakfasts I've had in a while.
At the weekends Will and I always make something a bit special for breakfast. Or we go out if we're feeling like something extra.
Even if it's just a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea it's one of my favourite weekend traditions and gets the weekend off to an excellent start.
When I'm meal planning I like to slot in one or two special breakfast recipes and this was one I planned as a surprise for Will because I knew that he'd love it.
Also, if I'm honest, Will is normally the one making us breakfast at the weekends while I laze around in bed. I am very lucky!
So I thought I'd make these breakfast tacos as a treat one Sunday and they were a huge hit.
So these tacos start off with a scoop of cheesy scrambled egg with chorizo stirred through it and then they're topped with a squeeze of fresh lime, some crispy onions, coriander (cilantro) leaves and hot sauce for dayssss.
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE BREAKFAST TACOS:
- Chorizo - I used cubed chorizo which worked really well stirred through the eggs
- Onion - Thinly sliced for frying
- Vegetable Oil
- Small Tortillas - I like the Mission ones
- Coriander (Cilantro)
- Lime Wedges
- Hot Sauce - Cholula chipotle hot sauce has my heart always and forever

I think my favourite thing about these tacos has to be the crispy fried onions on top. The cheesy eggs and chorizo are amazing but they're both set off by that crunch and sweetness from the onions.
When I had the idea to add the onions I thought frying them would be too much of a faff in the morning but it was actually completely fine.
I put the oil on to heat and quickly sliced the onion then fried in batches before removing to a paper towel lined plate.
After frying the onion everything else comes together super quickly. Fry the chorizo in a drop of oil until starting to get crispy.
Then the eggs need a quick whisk and a glug of milk before softly scrambling over a medium heat.
Mixed with grated cheddar and the chorizo they have the most delicious flavour. I then simply toasted my tortillas on the gas hob (not strictly necessary but, well, pretty necessary) and topped each with a scoop of eggs and all my toppings!
HOW TO MAKE BREAKFAST TACOS (STEP BY STEP):
- Heat 5cm of oil in a small saucepan until a piece of onion dropped into it starts to bubble and fry. Fry the onion slices in batches until crispy. Set aside.
- Fry the chorizo until the fat is rendered the set aside.
- Whisk the eggs with the milk then heat a tablespoon of oil and gently scramble the eggs. Add the chorizo and cheese.
- Serve tortillas topped with eggs, crispy onion and toppings.
