Mexican Restaurant-Inspired Breakfast Burrito

There is a small Mexican restaurant close to our house that Josh loves. I’ve never tried it because it is too greasy for my taste, but Josh loves it. He is always begging to eat there, but I always try to convince him to eat elsewhere…like at home!

That is why he made these chorizo breakfast burritos! He was craving a breakfast burrito from his favorite Mexican restaurant, but I wanted to make breakfast at home, so he took breakfast into his own hands and made Chorizo Bacon Breakfast Burritos.

A Loaded Breakfast Burrito that Freezes Well

He filled Old El Paso’s flour tortillas with spicy chorizo, bacon, potatoes, eggs, and cheese. He was going to stop there, but I suggested adding fresh pico de gallo and avocado to top off his breakfast burrito. I am always trying to sneak fruits and veggies into his diet:) He loved my suggestion. We make a great team:)

The breakfast burrito cured his craving and the best part? He had leftovers to put in the freezer. These chorizo breakfast burritos froze beautifully. Now, he can enjoy a breakfast burrito at home with no work. All he has to do is heat the burrito up!

Josh is going to have to fight Caleb for the leftovers though. Caleb downed a whole burrito. I was shocked. I thought it would be too spicy for him, but nope, he takes after his daddy! My boys love their chorizo burrito!

Total Time
40 minutes
Servings
8 burritos

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. bulk chorizo sausage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 16 oz. frozen diced hash-brown potatoes with onions and peppers
  • 8 large eggs beaten
  • 8 strips bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar or Mexican Blend cheese
  • 8 8-inch Old El Paso flour tortillas, heated
  • Pico de gallo chopped avocado, and/or hot sauce, for serving, if desired

Instructions

  1. 1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  2. 2. Wash the skillet to cook the potatoes. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and cook until tender and slightly cripsy, about 8-10 minutes. Remove potatoes from skillet and set aside.
  3. 3. In the same pan, cook the eggs. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and add the beaten eggs. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  4. 4. To assemble the burritos, sprinkle shredded cheese down the center of each warm flour tortilla. Next, spoon about 1/4 cup of sausage over the cheese. Top with about 1/4 cup of potatoes, egg, and 1 strip of chopped bacon. Fold bottom of each tortilla up over filling; roll up. If desired, serve with pico de gallo, avocado, and hot sauce. Serve warm.
  5. Note-these burritos are freezer friendly! Wrap each burrito in foil and place in a Ziploc freezer bag. When ready to eat, unwrap frozen burrito from foil. Place Wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave for about 3 minutes, depending on microwave power.

  1. Will definitely make & pin. In the directions, the step for the bacon was omitted – however I would probably cook the bacon first, before the chorizo, since the pan can get a bit sticky after cooking chorizo. That’s why I’m sure you mentioned to wash the pan before cooking the eggs. Great recipe Josh and thank you for sharing!

    1. In the recipe, it says to use cooked bacon. You can cook the bacon however you like. Josh always makes it in the microwave. If you want to cook it in the pan, you can!

  2. I meant “wash the pan before adding the potatoes”. Sometimes I clean the pan after that step to cook the eggs as well. So yummy looking-adding to my shopping list!

  3. These sound great. I can make a batch of the breakfast burritos and the breakfast muffins and freeze them all. That way when I have my B&B people come and stay – its a quick and easy breakfast for me to give them. I think I would replace the potatoes with refried beans! When microwaving them (after freezing) always sprinkle burritos or muffins with a few drops of water so they dont get hard or rubbery. Thanks.

  4. I’m embarrassed to admit that I never heard of Chorizo before I went to Denny’s! But who doesn’t love eggs, bacon, cheese and potatoes? Everyone’s love language.

  5. I had this wonderful breakfast place in college that I would always go to that had THE BEST chorizo breakfast burritos. MMMmmmmMM! And one time my meat and potatoes man asked for no cheese and they spelt it “no cheeses” on the box. It’s still an inside joke with us! Hah. Question though do you put any milk or water in your eggs? Or do you purposely not so that you can freeze them? Great recipe!
