Soy Chorizo Breakfast Burritos

chorizo burrito in pan mw


I made these breakfast burritos with ingredients that all have a long fridge/freezer life.

Having enjoyed a few days of cereal with yogurt, bananas and blueberries… we were ready for something different and warm for breakfast!  I had the following ingredients onhand and the results… rewarding!

Serves 6

Enough for my husband Jeff and me for breakfast with leftovers to freeze for 2 additional meals.


chorizo burrito on plate


4                 eggs

2 slices      cheddar cheese

1 cup         frozen hash browns

2                 soy chorizo sausages

1 tbsp          vegetable oil

2 tsp           butter

a no salt all-purpose spice or salt and pepper to taste

6                  flour tortillas ~ 8″ size


  1.  Gather ingredients for the burritos and place them in a work area near your stove.
  2.  In a medium saute’ pan add 1 1/2 tsp of oil.  Turn the stove to medium high.
  3.  When the oil is warm, add the hash browns.  Stir and cook for about 7 minutes or cooked through, stir periodically.  Remove the hash browns to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tsp of vegetable oil to the pan.  Remove the chorizo from the casings, saute’ and stir until thoroughly cooked according to package directions.  The package I used advised to cook the chorizo to 165 F.  Remove cooked chorizo to a plate.
  5. In a medium bowl whisk eggs together with a tsp of water.
  6. Add a tsp of butter to the pan over medium heat.  Melt butter then add the eggs.  Stir as needed until eggs are cooked.
  7.  Tear 1 slice of cheese into 4 pieces. With the heat on medium place cheese on top of the cooked eggs.  Add cooked hash browns and stir.  Add cooked chorizo and stir.
  8. Cut the remaining 1 1/2 tsp of butter in 4 and place along the inner edges of the pan.
  9.  Top with the final piece of cheese, torn into 3 – 4 pieces.  Let the cheese melt some then turn off the heat.
  10.  Cook the tortillas 1 at a time over low flame or heat from the stove.
  11.  Assemble and roll your burritos using about 1/2 cup of chorizo mixture per buritto.
  12.  Package the leftover burritos single layer in a zip top freezer bag.  Label the outer bag listing the contents and date packaged.  Enjoy within 3 month.
  13.  Reheat the frozen burritos in the microwave until hot and center is warm.
