Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Burrito

If you’re looking for a delicious and filling brunch dish, my Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Burrito is for you. Packed with tasty vegetables, chorizo and a slight spice, this is the perfect way to start your day.    

Is breakfast an important meal in your house?

In my house, breakfast seems to be the least thought about meal. Although I do love a good breakfast, I seem to fall into the pattern of having the same things. This is especially during the week when I’m at work. Sometimes at the weekend I do branch out and make a bacon sandwich, but this Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Burrito is definitely a treat. 

This isn’t a recipe I recommend making as a regular breakfast, but for a brunch dish every so often it is great! It takes a bit longer to make than a bacon sandwich, but in my opinion it is well worth it. This is why I suggest making it as a weekend brunch dish, after you have had a nice lie in or a lazy morning and then have the energy to potter around in the kitchen. This energy is what I lack early in the mornings!

Adapt this Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Burrito to your taste

This recipe is really adaptable. You can use as many different chilli powders and as much of them as you like. I personally would keep it relatively mild as it is a breakfast/brunch dish and I do not fancy something really spicy in the morning; but feel free to increase the spice if you want. You can also add other ingredients that you like. For example onions and mushrooms would go really well with the other flavours. You could also add more eggs and less potato if you want the eggs to be a more prominent ingredient.  

This burrito is very tasty and is a hearty meal so perfect for a lazy Sunday at home with a cup of coffee and catching up on the news.
