Description

Switch up your morning egg routine with these sensational chorizo and egg breakfast tacos topped with tomatoes, onion, avocado, feta and cilantro. Use gluten-free or low-carb tortillas for a healthy twist.


Ingredients

Scale

For chorizo mix

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ red pepper (capsicum/bell pepper), diced
  • ½ green pepper, diced
  • 200 g chorizo (78 oz), peeled and diced into small cubes
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (smoked paprika ideally)

Other toppings

  • 46 eggs (12 per serving depending on hunger)
  • A splash of oil or butter for cooking
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 avocado, diced or sliced
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ⅓ cup chopped coriander
  • 1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Hot sauce or salsa for serving
  • 4 low-carb tortilla wraps (see notes)

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet/frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers and diced chorizo and cook for 7-8 minutes until softened, slightly caramelised and chorizo browned. 
  • Add the garlic, cumin and paprika at the end and stir through for 30 seconds. Remove to a bowl.
  • In a clean pan, heat the tortilla wraps one at a time. Pan-fry on each side for 30 seconds to 1 minute until golden brown. Set aside in a bowl covered with a towel to keep warm.
  • Finally, pan-fry the eggs until sunny side up, season with a little salt and pepper. You can also scramble the eggs. While the eggs are cooking, prepare other ingredients.
  • To assemble, fill the tortilla with a little chorizo mix and egg on top, then scatter a little more chorizo mix over the top. Top each tortilla or place on the side the following: diced avocado, diced red onions and tomatoes, coriander and crumbled feta. Place a wedge of lime on top. Drizzle with hot sauce or salsa or serve on the side in a ramekin.

Notes

  • I used Mission brand low-carb tortillas (like these), which are slighter bigger than the small street tacos. You are welcome to use any tortillas you like and make 6-8 smaller ones instead of 4 large ones. 
  • For a paleo, Whole30, keto version, serve in bowls without tortillas.
