Ironically, even though I love breakfast foods, I’m not usually hungry for a big breakfast in the morning. Weird right? Probably because I’m the one who cooks in my house, and well, let’s just say, I’m NOT a morning person lol. I need a good hour or so before I’m fully functional, which is no time to be near a stove top burner!
So while you can absolutely make these for breakfast, or brunch, I love to make them for dinner! Breakfast for dinner is a popular dinner choice in my house, as well all love the amazing comfort food!
These breakfast tacos do have a bit of a kick, from the Mexican chorizo and the serrano peppers in the potatoes, but it can easily be modified to be less spicy if you prefer. Instead of using the serrano pepper, use a jalapeno (with the seeds taken out) or use a green bell pepper. The chorizo is a mild heat, but if you really can’t take it (or want the kids to eat it), I think some ground pork or turkey would work well.
One thing I really love about these breakfast tacos is that most of the components can be made ahead of time, then reheated to serve. The chorizo can be browned and refrigerated… as can the potatoes and onion. I wouldn’t make the eggs ahead of time, as I think they’d be a bit rubbery, but making the eggs doesn’t take a whole lot of time, so you’re still getting an easy meal!
The next time you’re craving something different for breakfast, brunch or dinner, give these chorizo and potato breakfast tacos a try!! They’re great with my restaurant style salsa drizzled over the top (takes just 5 minutes to make!).
