These chorizo ​​breakfast tacos wrap delicious ingredients in a cheesy quesadilla

I have a very healthy obsession with tacos. If you were to ask me on any given day what I want for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the chances that I would suggest tacos for at least one of those meals is very high. I mean tacos are the perfect vessel for delicious ingredients. And typically it means a quick meal with little cleanup.

These breakfast tacos are my favorite taco recipe right now. The taco is a street-style corn tortilla. These tortillas are the smallest ones you can find at your local grocery store, and measure about 4 inches in diameter. I prefer this size, as they are the perfect two-bite mini taco, but you could use whatever size you want. I take two tortillas and add cheddar cheese between them and warm them in my cast iron, so that the cheese melts, and it’s like a mini quesadilla as the base for the taco.

The filling for these tacos is pork chorizo, hash browns, scrambled eggs, salsa verde and a sprinkle of cotija cheese on top. The chorizo ​​and hash browns are mixed together, and the salsa verde is made from scratch. Trust me when I say the way all of these flavors come together is nothing short of magical.
