Just because it’s breakfast time does not mean you shouldn’t make tacos. Tacos are life, no matter the time of day or meal. In fact, I would eat these for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or maybe even for all three meals in one day). In fairness, I’m an extra big taco fan – but these are just so damn good that I’d eat them at any time, day or night. Very few ingredients and practically no prep time are required to make these tacos, and the taste payoff is big.
These meat-free breakfast tacos will satisfy your craving for chorizo tacos and are so much healthier than the meaty original. If you have never given soy chorizo a try, now is the time. I rarely eat regular chorizo anymore because this stuff is legit. If you’re a vegetarian, these are perfect for the days you are craving meatiness and satisfaction. If you’re not a vegetarian, you might just flirt with the idea of becoming one after you eat these breakfast tacos.
Ingredients (makes 8 tacos):
1 package of soy chorizo, removed from plastic casing
2-3 Tbsp butter
2 jalapenos or serranos, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
⅓ c. cotija cheese, crumbled
8 warm tortillas
Salt and pepper
Serve with any other favorite toppings, including:
Cook the soy chorizo according to package directions and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium high heat and fry eggs to your desired doneness. I like mine sunny-side up! Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble the tacos, place the soy chorizo on top of warm tortillas. Top with fried eggs, peppers, onions, and cotija cheese. Serve immediately!
