Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the potato slices in the skillet and season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan to a baking sheet and put in the warm oven.
  3. Stir chorizo into skillet and cook until browned and crumbly, stirring frequently to break apart. Pour off the grease, then place the chorizo in the oven with the potatoes. Wipe the skillet dry with paper towels.
  4. Wrap the tortillas with aluminum foil and place in the warm oven.
  5. Melt butter in the skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the eggs and continually stir while cooking. When the eggs are nearly set, mix in the chorizo and potatoes. Add the cream cheese and stir until melted; just before serving, fold in the cilantro.
  6. Place the tortillas onto individual plates and spoon the eggs onto the lower half of each. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll the tortillas into a tight cylinder; top with green salsa to serve.

Wow - were these ever good! I LOVE chorizo sausage plus given these weren't your typical run of the mill breakfast burritos I had to give these a try. I was definitely not disappointed. I added a little bit of smoked paprika along with the chili powder and used light cream cheese. You could definitely add some Mexican blend cheese or Cheddar if you like - when it comes to cheese and eggs wrapped in a tortilla the more the better! You just can't go wrong here. Thanks for a great recipe Seattle Dad!

These are delicious! My mother started making these when we lived in New Mexico and we still make them here in Maryland! Instead of using sausage my mom uses bacon, and i use scrapple. Either way it just depends on what kind of meat you like. Also we make tons of these at a time and wrap them in tin foil and freeze them. Its great for kids to just pop in the microwave. Also you may have a problem finding green chili, i know we do in Maryland, but it is a must, DO NOT substitute, we order ours online.
