Spicy Chorizo and Egg Wrap Recipe

This is a very simple recipe that the boys love most any time of the year.  I use 1/2 of the pre-packaged chorizo I get at the Mexican Market in Fremont Ohio.  This is perfect to divide for my Chorizo and cheese dip recipe.  Be sure to take advantage of the print option below because you will want to make this up often.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces fresh chorizo
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup of spicy salad microgreens

Instructions

  1. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook chorizo over medium heat until cooked through, breaking into crumbles, 6-8 minutes. Drain and return to pan.
  2. Whisk eggs and milk until blended.
  3. Add egg mixture to skillet with chorizo. Cook and stir until eggs are thickened and scrambled.
  4. Fold in cheese before spooning egg mixture across center of each tortilla.
  5. Add toppings of your choice (see suggestions in this post) before rolling up your tortilla as you like!

Notes

Optional toppings: Thinly sliced green onions, minced fresh cilantro and salsa

This recipe was inspired after discovering Chorizo at a grocery store many years ago (2013).   Can you believe I had no idea what Chorizo was until that time?   My original recipe used salsa on the wrap but not needed when you add fresh ingredients like Spicy Microgreens that can be grown year-round.

A benefit of having access to a location with a controlled growing environment is being able to harvest from your favorite season. You can enjoy summer year-round when you grow your own produce in a controlled environment.  Many of the tomatoes I use for meal planning are from my summer harvest or from produce from the local farmers market. Herbs like cilantro, parsley, rosemary, thyme are favorites that are super easy to grow in my geodesic biodome. The weather may not allow you to grow fresh herbs like cilantro outdoors but in a controlled environment, you can. Enjoy Summer Year-Round with Chorizo Wrap And homemade Salsa featuring herbs you grew in a controlled environment.  The list below is a few of the vegetables and herbs I love to grow for this recipe.

  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Chives
  • Cilantro
  • Peppers
  • Arugula
  • Spicy Microgreens
