What a fantastic chorizo breakfast tacos recipe. This is hearty and delicious.
I was concerned that the quick cooking time for the potatoes would leave me with underdone potatoes, but that wasn't the case. The potatoes came out tender and golden brown and were perfect with the chorizo. The radishes offered a wonderful crunchy texture, while the egg was still somewhat soft and runny and able to blend the entire taco together. My chorizo was a bit lean, so I did add some fat to the pan before warming the tortillas. This was a great dish for breakfast, but would also be wonderful for dinner. Because my chorizo was lean, next time I'll use a nonstick skillet for the chorizo and the potatoes.
Every once and a while it's good to shake things up at breakfast time. This chorizo breakfast tacos recipe does just that! If you like huevos rancheros, then this delicious dish is right up your alley. Tender corn tortillas filled with spicy chorizo sausage, browned potatoes, crisp radishes, and cheese.
I had shredded Cheddar in the house, so that's what I used, but I do think a feta cheese or cotija would be best. Hearty as any breakfast dish can get, this is a good brunch for a lazy weekend morning. The only items I'd add would be a dash or two of hot sauce and maybe a dollop of sour cream. Simple ingredients, just the right amount of spiciness, and over-the-top tasty!
We really enjoyed these chorizo breakfast tacos. I used really good homemade chorizo, which elevated the taste of the tacos quite a bit. The radishes added a nice, crisp texture and tangy, fresh flavor. We made our tacos with the cotija, which I would think is a more authentic choice.
