red potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch slices

bulk chorizo sausage
burrito-size flour tortillas

1 (4 ounce) package
chopped fresh cilantro
Wow - were these ever good! I LOVE chorizo sausage plus given these weren't your typical run of the mill breakfast burritos I had to give these a try. I was definitely not disappointed. I added a little bit of smoked paprika along with the chili powder and used light cream cheese. You could definitely add some Mexican blend cheese or Cheddar if you like - when it comes to cheese and eggs wrapped in a tortilla the more the better! You just can't go wrong here. Thanks for a great recipe Seattle Dad!
do not used sour cream
These are delicious! My mother started making these when we lived in New Mexico and we still make them here in Maryland! Instead of using sausage my mom uses bacon, and i use scrapple. Either way it just depends on what kind of meat you like. Also we make tons of these at a time and wrap them in tin foil and freeze them. Its great for kids to just pop in the microwave. Also you may have a problem finding green chili, i know we do in Maryland, but it is a must, DO NOT substitute, we order ours online.
Loved these! I used 4 blend Mexican cheese instead of cream cheese and thought it was wonderful!
This was delicious! I made several changes. I used only 5-6 potatoes and increased the eggs to 8. I also used red salsa instead of green. The recipe made about 7 burritos. We'll definitely do these for brunch again!
This was great, Seattle Dad! I used 4 good sized organic red potatoes, ground california chili pepper (you get the full flavor of the chili powder without a ton of heat), 3 full eggs and 4 egg whites and light cream cheese. My kids were on the fence about it but both my husband and I thought this was GREAT! I think next time instead of cream cheese, I'll use mexican cheese or shredded monterey jack but that's not a reflection of the recipe. Just a personal choice.
These burritos are delicious! For those of you complaining about the calorie content, just simply don't make them I don't know why you have to make such a big deal over a recipe! Thanks Seattle Dad for a terrific recipe. It's nice to splurge once in awhile!!!
I skipped the potatoes to reduce the carbs. Great remedy for a late night out. For more heat pass the hot sauce. I substituted flour tortillas and covered in a cheesy sauce.
