Breakfast burritos stuffed with chorizo sausage, potatoes, eggs, salsa and plenty of melted cheese!

Burritos are one of my favourite foods and it’s fun to enjoy them for breakfast! These burritos are super easy to make! You simply cook spicy fresh Mexican style chorizo sausage, cook potatoes until golden brown and crispy, cook scrambled eggs, throw everything into tortillas, along with cheese and salsa, before wrapping, warming and enjoying! These breakfast burritos can be made ‘as you like’, so you can change the chorizo to your favourite sausage, or bacon; change the potatoes to hash browns, or tots; use your favourite cheese; use your favourite salsa. I like to make a batch of breakfast burrritos ahead of time and warm them up for quick and easy breakfasts for busy mornings!
