Chorizo can look like either sausage or ground beef with various degrees of spiciness. You can find it in the meat department of your local grocery store.


  • 10 ounces Mexican chorizo sausage, casings removed
  • Canola oil
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2/3 cup Mexican four cheese blend, grated
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup prepared tomatillo salsa
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, sliced


  • 1 Brush canola oil on both sides of the corn tortillas and grill for 3 minutes each side. Form in the shape of a taco while still warm and set aside.
  • 2 In a large skillet cook chorizo over medium-high heat, breaking up, about 5 to 6 minutes or until cooked through.
  • 3 Add onions and sauté for 30 seconds.
  • 4 Drain and transfer to bowl; cover to keep warm.
  • 5 In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 6 Add oil to the same skillet; heat over medium heat. Add eggs; cook until softly scrambled.
  • 7 Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  • 8 Divide eggs between the tacos. Top with cheese, chorizo, cilantro, salsa and avocado.
