Potato, Egg and Chorizo Burrito

This is another copy-cat recipe that my husband and I have created. This is a copy of the delicious chorizo burrito from Beto’s. This is about as close as you can get to Beto’s, though nothing is ever as good as the real thing. I did not capture a picture of this, but just imagine a giant delicious burrito.
Chorizo is a Mexican sausage. Sometimes it can be spicy; it just depends on who is making it. You can find this at the grocery store, but I suggest you either buy it in ground or sausage form at a local Mexican market. If you do have a local market that makes their sausage in house (like sunflower market) you can buy it there too.

Potato Egg and Chorizo Burrito

1 lb chorizo (removed from casing)
3 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 lb chorizo
6 eggs, beaten
Several tortillas (the bake your own from Costco or Wal-Mart are the best)
Shredded cheese and hot sauce

Cook the chorizo in a large frying pan (or sauce pan) over medium heat. When cooked through, remove chorizo and set aside. Add cubed potatoes to the pan and cook in the chorizo grease (you may need to add some extra oil). Cover the potatoes, and let cook until soft (about 15 minutes), stirring often. When potatoes are soft add the chorizo back to the pan, and add the beaten eggs. Mix it all together and let the eggs cook. When the eggs are done, remove from heat and assemble on your tortilla with cheese and hot sauce.
