Posted online

Corn tortillas packed with spicy chorizo and scrambled eggs topped with a tomatillo salsa, Mexican cheese, ripe avocado and cilantro. A fine example of the breakfast trend: Ethnic Invasion. A lovely Latino-style way to start the day.

Why Try? These breakfast tacos are inexpensive, quick and perfect for on-the-go families.

Foodie Byte: Chorizo can look like either sausage or ground beef with various degrees of spiciness. You can find it in the meat department of your local grocery store.
