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!
