Soyrizo Breakfast Tacos
with roasted potatoes

Active: 30 minTotal: 35 min

I know most of us don't make the time to have a real breakfast, so let's make up for it with breakfast for dinner. Soyrizo is a flavorful non-meat alternative to chorizo, and I promise the meat-eaters won't be able to tell the difference. Then use our special roasting vegetable technique for quick and crunchy weeknight potatoes.


Roasted Potatoes with Paprika:
  • Baby or new potatoes - 1 1/2 lbs, quartered
  • Olive oil - 2 Tbsp
  • Paprika - 1 tsp
  • Ketchup or hot sauce - for serving
Soyrizo Breakfast Tacos:
  • Green onions - 2 stalks, chopped
  • Onions - 1/2, diced
  • Eggs - 6 to 8, whisked
  • Avocado - 1, sliced or cubed
  • Soyrizo - 1 lb ((Can be found usually with the tofu. If you can't find use faux ground meat))
  • Tortillas, soft taco sized (corn or flour) - 8
  • Sour cream or creme fraiche - for serving over breakfast tacos
  • Hot sauce - for serving

  1. Green onions / Onions - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  2. Eggs - Whisk (if you have some milk, cream, or yogurt, add a tablespoon or two in for fluffier eggs).
  3. Avocado - Slice or cube.
  4. Potatoes - Quarter.


  1. Preheat oven to 500F (260C) degrees. {Check out our how to roast vegetables video.}
  2. Place potatoes in a sheet pan and then cover tightly with foil. Bake for 10 minutes on top rack.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add in 1 tbs. (15 ml) cooking oil and then diced onions to heated oil with a dash of salt. Saute for ~3 minutes, until softened. Add in soyrizo (remove from casing). Saute for another 3 minutes. Remove from skillet.
  4. Return skillet back to heat and add remaining tablespoon of oil. Add in eggs and then lightly scramble until you get them to the consistency you want. Remove from heat.
  5. After potatoes have steamed for 10 minutes, take them out and toss with olive oil, paprika, and a generous sprinkle of salt. Roast for another 10 to 15 minutes uncovered, giving them a shake midway through.
  6. Warm tortillas according to package instructions. Spoon eggs and soyrizo into warmed tortillas. Top with avocado, sour cream, and hot sauce. Enjoy potatoes dipped in ketchup or drizzled with hot sauce.

These were perfect with only 4 eggs and 12 oz. (one package) of Soyrizo. Added diced tomato for freshness. I could see adding shredded cheese as well, although I didn't want to increase the calorie count -- I think the number up top (699 per serving) is too low, as it doesn't account for 2 tbs of cooking oil that you need for the eggs and onions.

I used Aidells Chicken & Apple sausage and it was amazing. The flavors were so great together!

I used chorizo seitan because I also couldn't find soyrizo. But I'm glad I did b/c it was really great. I hate sausage, but this had an awesome texture and was very, very flavorful. The eggs were almost overkill and make terrible leftovers. I completely forgot to make the potatoes and we had a lot of food. Oh, I also threw some peppers in to the meat, which was great.

I admit I couldn't do the soyrizo so I tried it with chorizo. It was delish!

Couldn't find Soyrizo, but used a different brand 'soy sausage'. The problem is that it didn't cook very 'sausagey'...but tasted pretty good.

Loved this one. I did use beef (I couldn't find soyrizo at my store), and of course it was tasty. The potatoes were awesome (I love this roasting technique and use it constantly now). I will definitely make this again.
