Chorizo y Papas Breakfast Burritos

For reasons I will explain in another post, it took me a huge amount of effort to make this dinner. It's actually really easy, I just lacked the motivation. I used that grain sausage I've used before in "chorizo" recipes, and it was good but I honestly think this would have been a much stronger recipe without the fake chorizo. I added cheese because I'm Lauren and I love cheese, and if I'd had sour cream I would have added that too. But the chorizo just was a little too much. I would have liked just the potatoes and egg.

Chorizo y Papas Breakfast Burritos
Vegetarian Times, June 2011

3 teaspoons canola oil
1 medium russet potato, diced
1 8-ounce package soy chorizo
4 extra-large eggs
4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
2 green onions, thinly sliced (1/4 cup)

1. Heat 2 tsp. oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange diced potato in single layer in pan. Cook 7 minutes, or until golden, turning once. Move potato to side of pan. Add remaining 1 tsp. oil to opposite side of pan, then add soy chorizo; cook 1 minute, crumbling with spatula. Stir potato and chorizo together; cook 2 minutes more, or until potato is tender. Transfer to bowl, and cover.

2. Wipe out skillet, spray with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Crack eggs in pan, and cook 2 minutes, or until whites are set, turning once for over easy.

3. Lay eggs in centers of warmed tortillas. Divide potato mixture among tortillas, and top with green onions. Roll up tortillas, leaving one end open.

Servings: 4
