Chorizo time! We recently discovered soft chorizo in our local super market and got pretty excited. It is like discovering a new ice cream flavour for us. This is slightly inspired by a breakfast chorizo taco dish we had in the USA.  We actually had them for dinner so I guess you can have them for breakfast or dinner.

Chorizo Egg Taco

It is really easy to put this dish together. You’ll need some vegetables, eggs and last but not least chorizos! If there are no chorizo readily available, I suppose you could have Breakfast Italian Sausage taco instead? I kinda miss spicy italian sausage! They could be a good substitute for this. Well I think if you don’t have any tacos, you could even turn them into Breakfast chorizo/ italian sausage sandwich! Yup have them as a sandwich. Why not? Be a rebel. Alright I can go on and on with the different variations possible.

In any case it is really simple to make and you get a good balance of smoky spicy sausage and crunchy refreshing vegetables. Who can forget the soft scramble eggs on top too. Easy tasty and great on a weeknight!
