Wonderful Chicken and Chorizo Breakfast Burritos Recipe

Spice up your mornings with this great burrito dish, waking the family up to the smell of chorizo and filling their bellies with this amazing south of the border treat. Serve these with guacamole, sour cream or tomato sauce, or without if you prefer. Burritos are usually served as lunch or dinner, but they are also perfect breakfast fare, so why not consider this recipe if you want to make something extra-special for your family, offering a wonderful breakfast or brunch?

This recipe combines fantastic tastes in the form of chorizo, a salty sausage with lots of flavor, along with chipotle pinto beans or another kind of beans if you prefer, rice, eggs, and some chopped cooked chicken. You will find this makes not only a tasty filling but also something with the perfect consistency to hold together inside the tortilla. You might prefer your south of the border dishes spicy, in which case feel free to add in a drained can of jalapeño slices, or a spoonful of chili powder. You can also swap the beans for kidney beans, black beans, or even mixed beans.

If you usually have the same thing for breakfast every day, consider this for a special treat. You will still be getting your eggs but instead of being fried, poached or scrambled, they are going to be combined with tasty south of the border ingredients and used to fill tortillas, to make these lovely burritos. You can adapt the recipe if you wish, swapping some of the ingredients for others, or even making it vegetarian by switching out the chorizo and chicken for extra beans and/or cheese. Make this your own and you will get the perfect flavor and amazing results.

Once you have prepared the filling and filled the tortillas, wrap them up and your burritos are ready, and they are best served hot. Something you might wish to do though, in fact almost certainly, is scatter shredded cheese on top, either a Mexican blend, a nice sharp cheddar, or anything you want, and then broil the burritos until the cheese is golden brown and melted. This adds a wonderful finishing touch, but you must keep an eye on them because you do not want to burn that tasty cheese topping. Then serve the burritos immediately, with tomato sauce or guacamole perhaps.
