Is it just me or do I add Chorizo to just about everything?! Well this recipe is going to have it too, because it just makes everything better. If you are not a fan no worries there are plenty of things you can substitute if you want (but who wants to)?!
Ingredients: 1/2 package of Chorizo ~ 2 Eggs ~ 10-12 inch Tortillas (I used Wheat) ~ Frozen Hash Browns ~ Optional: Shredded lettuce ~ Salsa ~ Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt
Directions: Cook frozen hash according to directions on the package in a skillet. I didn’t measure the frozen hash but approximately 1/2 cup to one cup will be good for 2 servings. Move the hash to one side of the pan and cook the chorizo until lightly browned.
Crack the eggs into the pan and scrambled mixing it with the rest of the ingredients. Once cooked through, transfer all ingredients to a bowl and set aside. Replace pan to the stovetop and add in a Tsp of oil or spray with Pam; place tortilla into the pan.
Add in half of the Chorizo mix to one side of the tortilla then fold the tortilla in half.
Flip if needed to cook the other side. I choose to let the tortilla cook flat then just folded over just as it was done. Cut into 4 wedges and serve. I added some shredded lettuce, salsa and Greek yogurt to dip the Quesadillas in. I had some Thousand Island dressing too but it wasn’t as good as the salsa and yogurt.
Substitutions: Not a fan of Chorizo? Substitute crumbled sausage, ham, or even bacon. Bacon will not yield as much of a filling so you may need more egg to fill it up.
Vegetarian Option: Skip the meat all together and add in your favorite veggies.
This was a no muss no fuss breakfast and easy to whip up! I really liked it and can’t wait to make it again.
