Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place sweet potatoes and green onions on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine and spread out evenly.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until soft, about 25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook chorizo in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, breaking apart with a wooden spoon, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain any excess fat; transfer chorizo to a bowl and set aside to cool. Wipe out the skillet and return it to the stove.

  • Whisk eggs in a bowl. Heat butter in the skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in eggs and scramble until just set, 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape eggs into a bowl and let cool.

  • Line up tortillas in assembly-line fashion. Divide chorizo between the 8 tortillas. Top each with a portion of sweet potato-onion mixture, scrambled eggs, 1 tablespoon salsa, and queso fresco. Fold the bottom of each tortilla up over the filling, then fold in both sides and roll up burritos.

  • Flip burritos so they are seam side-down. Wrap each individually with aluminum foil and place into a resealable plastic bag.

Cook's Note:

These reheat more evenly when thawed. To reheat a thawed burrito, remove from aluminum foil and wrap in a paper towel. Heat in the microwave at 30% power for 2 to 3 minutes, or until warmed through. For frozen, heat at 30% power for 5 minutes, or until warmed through, turning over halfway through.

Love love loved these! I make a breakfast skillet for my family with sweet potatoes and chorizo so I knew we'd love this. I was sneaking the sweet potatoes after I took them out of the oven and had to stop myself from eating them all. My kids requested I make "those new burritos" again this week. I brought one to work and people were asking what I was eating because it smelled so good.:) I once had something very similar at a local breakfast restaurant and still remember it to this day!

I made this as a change up for my husband from his usual breakfast taco to go. I'm not a big breakfast eater so I haven't tried it myself. but he likes chorizo and sweet potatoes but he said that the two of them together was too strange of a taste for him. Read More
