I have never been into breakfast casseroles – until now! I took a bite of a chorizo burrito and suddenly I realized how amazing chorizo and eggs are paired together!

The burrito was filled with chorizo and eggs, topped with white queso, pico de gallo and salsa verde. It’s a flavor explosion! I love Mexican food in all formats, but it’s so much fun to serve it for breakfast too!

Another simple shortcut is purchasing pico de gallo. You can find it in the produce section of your grocer. You can also make your own pico de gallo with fresh onion, tomato, cilantro and a touch of lime juice.

How to Make a Chorizo Burrito Breakfast Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×13” baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook chorizo over medium high heat. Optional: add taco seasoning
  3. Whisk eggs and cream. Set aside.
  4. Line the casserole dish with flour tortillas.
  5. Add chorizo.
  6. Add another layer of tortillas.
  7. Top with egg mixture. Don’t worry if your tortillas float.
  8. Bake 60 minutes.
  9. Cover with queso blanco. Garnish with pico de gallo and salsa verde.

Chorizo and Eggs

Chorizo and eggs go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s an unexpected combination that is so amazing! Blending the two together in a casserole is quick and easy. No need to make scrambled eggs, you can just blend them with cream for an irresistible light and fluffy texture.

Mexican chorizo is simply a seasoned pork sausage. I love integrating it into this Mexican Breakfast Casserole, but it’s also amazing in queso, on tacos and more!

A couple quick tips!

  • While I love flour tortillas for this casserole, corn tortillas work just as well and are an excellent gluten free option.
  • The best thing about this casserole? You can cook the chorizo and put the whole thing together the night before! Then you can just pop it in the oven in the morning! So easy, so good!
  • You can decide exactly how spicy you’d like this dish to be. If you like a milder spice level, choose a mild chorizo and salsa verde.
