  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 lb ground Mexican chorizo
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 serrano pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • soft taco sized corn or flour tortillas
  • chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • salsa, for garnish
  • sour cream, for garnish
  • shredded cheese, for garnish


  • Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over MED HIGH heat.  Add chorizo and brown, breaking into crumbles until fully cooked and slightly crispy.  Transfer to a plate, reserving grease in the skillet.
  • Add potatoes and onion, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste, and saute in the chorizo grease (adding a bit of vegetable oil if necessary), until potatoes are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, about 12-15 minutes.
  • Add Serrano pepper and sliced green onions and cook for 1 minute more.
  • Add potato mixture to the cooked chorizo on the plate. Wipe out skillet to remove browned bits of food.
  • Add butter and heat over LOW heat. Add beaten eggs to skillet and scramble, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, set aside.
  • Microwave or char tortillas over an open burner flame, until pliable and warm.
  • Top tortilla with potato and chorizo mixture, eggs, and garnish as desired.
