Excellent breakfast burrito! I always cook the chorizo sausage and drain it to avoid a bunch of grease and cook the eggs and onions separately. I also have a non-stick pan so no need for cooking spray. These were so good, especially with some salsa on the side!

I've been making these for a long time without a recipe...and they are definitely a fan favorite. I have found there are a few tips to avoiding a greasy mess. 1. Drain the chorizo a bit. and 2. push the chorizo off to one side of the pan and scramble the eggs by themselves and then mix them with the chorizo. This helps keep chorizo from muddying up the whole thing.

Thought this would be like what I got back home in Texas. These were good, but not "eggy" enough for me. I will make these again, but use more eggs next time, as I want a more of a scrambled egg type burrito. This was all meat, like no egg at all in it.

very good, but be sure to use "beef" Chorizo as the pork kind is a bit too greasy.

Tasty recipe. This was the first time I had used chorizo so I wasn't sure how long to cook. This isn't the prettiest dish but it tasted good. I used canned diced green chiles as a timesaver. Will make again. Served with a potato/onion side dish.

I used beef chorizo. Added another egg. Didn't use any peppers, family doesn't like spiciness, BUT I DO ~sigh~. Did fry up some potatoes to add to the burrito mix....yummy.

These are very good! I changed it up a little by making more of a quesedilla by using Pam and grilling the tortilla and adding the chorizo, egg and some cheddar/jack cheese. Yummy!! My kids really enjoyed this for Sunday breakfast. They are quesedilla addicts!

So so so good! Just the way I like them. The proportions were exactly right! I made them for my husband to take to his co workers ( and of course some for me too) everyone enjoyed them!!! Be sure to not get cheap chorizo. I got mine from a great butcher. Get quality and you will taste the difference.

Store didn't have chorizo so I substituted sage ground sausage. I drained is as other reviewers have suggested. I also used a yellow onion 1/2 c red bell pepper & 1 clove of garlic. Also used a 4 oz can of green chiles drained and chopped. I liked it:)
