Austin is one of my favorite cities to travel to largely because there are so many good eats! They have a little bit of everything, but what always blew me away were the amazing breakfast tacos! I constantly wonder why they aren’t everywhere in my neck of the woods in the North East, so I often resort to making them at home! They’re quick to make, easily customizable but best-of-all: so delicious! My favorite Austin inspired version uses refried beans, chorizo, a good scramble and sausage. But feel free to sub with what you do have on hand, though keep in mind with breakfast tacos: the simpler, the better.

How to Make Them

Really, this recipe is more of a suggested meal than a recipe, as a lot of this is just gathering together ingredients!

  1. We recommend making your own refried beans, since it’s so simple, so start with that.
  2. We love the use of raw chorizo cooked and crumbled without the casing, so that will need to be quickly sautéed up.
  3. Then move on to preparing the eggs. Scrambled is good choice here, but go ahead and fry up some sunny side up eggs if you want.
  4. Next gather the remaining ingredients you need, (mainly salsa and cilantro) and set aside before heating up the tortillas! Our favorites are Siete Tortillas or some corn tortillas.
  5. Then either assemble the tacos or set out all of the ingredients to let everyone assemble their own!
