Breakfast Burrito with Chorizo and [Leftover] Roasted Potatoes
with fruit salad
These breakfast burritos make for a hearty dinner and come together fast thanks to roasted potatoes made earlier in the week. Add your favorite fresh fruit for a simple side.
- Eggs - 6, whisked
- Milk - 1 Tbsp
- Salt - 1/4 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
- Green onions - 2 stalks, chopped, green and white parts separate
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp
- Chorizo - 6 oz
- Roasted Paprika Potatoes (leftover from Tuesday) - ~2 cups
- Tortillas, burrito-sized - 4
- Cheese, queso fresco - 2 oz, crumbled (sub Mexican or cheddar cheese, shredded)
- Salsa - for serving
- Sour cream - for serving (sub plain or Greek yogurt)
- Fresh fruit, any mix - 1 lb, chopped (use your favorites for fruit salad)
Transfer chorizo to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain off oil from the pan and wipe it clean with a paper towel.
Return pan to medium heat and add second portion of oil. Pour eggs over heated oil. Let sit until the bottom parts start to set. Lightly scramble and cook until eggs are cooked to the consistency you’d like. Fold in green parts of green onions.
While eggs are cooking, reheat leftover potatoes in the microwave.
Warm tortillas according to package directions.
Set tortillas out on a clean surface. Fill each tortilla with eggs, crumbled cheese, potatoes, and chorizo. Top burrito filling with some salsa if you’d like (you can also just reserve it for dipping).
Fold the sides of the burritos and then roll to enclose the filling.
Serve burrito with salsa and sour cream for dipping. Enjoy fruit salad on the side.
Made smoothies instead of fruit salad, otherwise great!1 Helpful

Really tasty. Servings were huge! Kids ate everything. Didn't do the potatoes earlier, but used the air fryer and it cut the time to roast them in half - so we were still able to pull this off pretty easily on a weeknight. Also did a smoothie to use up some aging bananas and pears instead of doing a fruit salad and that worked really well.0 Helpful
