Chorizo Potato Breakfast Burritos are hearty breakfast burritos made with pork chorizo, onion, bell pepper, and potatoes – they are the perfect start to your day!
Breakfast burritos always remind me of a warm summer morning at the farmers market. Along with stopping by the donut stand, grabbing a warm breakfast burrito from a local food truck seems to complete our farmers market trip. Of course we pick up fresh produce but I’d be lying if I said a good breakfast wasn’t part of the fun of the market.
During the colder months when we don’t frequent the farmers market, I have to take things into my own hands and make my own breakfast burritos. I’ve been making these Chorizo Potato Breakfast Burritos on repeat lately and they definitely hit the spot!

These chorizo breakfast burritos have a few things going on, but the process of cooking them is very simple. First, you’ll brown the chorizo. I recommend using ground Mexican chorizo in this recipe. Mexican chorizo is typically made from pork and is highly seasoned, opposed to Spanish chorizo which is dried and cured, like a salami. Using chorizo, which has a ton of flavor, means you don’t really need any other seasonings in the rest of the ingredients. The chorizo is definitely the star of these burritos!
Once the chorizo is cooked, the onion, peppers, and potaotes are sauteed in some of the grease from the chorizo and olive oil. You’ll want to dice your potatoes pretty small so they don’t take long to cook. Lastly, the eggs are scrambled. It is best to cook scrambled eggs over lower heat, so they turn out light and fluffy, and not rubbery.
The only thing left to do now is assemble! Wrap the eggs, potatoes, and chorizo up in a warm burrito tortilla along with shredded cheese, and avocado, and then top it all off with salsa and sour cream. You could even top them with some guacamole if you’re feeling a little extra.
Just like the farmers market in the summer, these breakfast burritos are a staple for us on winter Sunday mornings!
