Let's Make Tacos!

  • Heat griddle to 350 degrees. Brown the chorizo like you would hamburger. Make sure the internal temp reached 165 degrees. This should take 4-6 minutes. Once cooked reserve.
  • Toss the potatoes, red bell peppers, and onions in oil then season. Place on the griddle and cook until the edges of the potatoes are brown and the inside is soft. This takes around 7-10 minutes. When finished reserve.
  • Add some oil to the griddle and cook the eggs any way you like them. We like them sunny side up. Reserve the cooked eggs and clean the griddle.

  • Lightly brown each tortilla.
  • Fill each with about a 1/4 cup of chorizo. Then place an egg in each one. Top the tortillas off with the sliced avocado, salsa verde, diced tomatoes, and extra cilantro. Feel free to add any of your favorite taco toppings.
