Breakfast Street Tacos

Did you know there’s such a thing as a taco diet?  A diet in which you eat only tacos.  I think I could be onboard with that.  Tacos are seriously my favorite.   The kids love them too.  Sometimes when I’m making something I don’t think they’ll eat, I put it in a tortilla and tell them it’s tacos.  They don’t know any better, so don’t tell them.  It’s our little secret.  I’ve made curried chicken “tacos”, pot roast “tacos”, black bean and sweet potato “tacos”.  I even sometimes add ketchup to their “tacos” for good measure.

But back to my love affair with tacos.  I think I like them so much because they’re so versatile.  And you really can eat them for any meal.  The other day I made some breakfast street tacos.  So this came about because I was in the grocery store, buying a package of tortillas and I found this package of cute little tortillas for street tacos.  So of course I bought them and then made breakfast street tacos the next day.  With a little bit of chorizos and some cheese.  A big hit with everyone!

Start by browning the chorizo sausage in a pan with a little bit of olive oil over medium heat.
