Chorizo Breakfast Burritos

This this breakfast is full of flavor! Chorizo, a Mexican sausage, is made from either pork or beef. It features flavors of cumin, oregano, thyme, cloves, and chilis. Chorizo is paired with eggs for a delicious combination. Definitely different than the typical sage breakfast sausage.

These buritos can also be served with avocado, sour cream, and cilantro.
