Chorizo Breakfast Bowls
These Chorizo Breakfast Bowls are a great way to start the day, but they are also hearty enoigh for dinner! My healthy turkey chorizo recipe inspired me to make these Mexican breakfast bowls. You can make the chorizo and potatoes ahead, then cook up some eggs in the morning and breakfast is ready! Another great Mexican breakfast idea with chorizo for a crowd is this Tex Mex Breakfast Casserole. I have tons of more Breakfast Recipes here!
These savory breakfast bowls are high in protein. They start with a layer of roasted potatoes, followed by turkey chorizo. Chorizo is usually made of pork and high in fat. However, my chorizo recipe uses lean ground turkey to keep it light. After the chorizo, add the fried egg, Mexican cheese, and avocado. I like to use queso blanco or queso fresco, both white Mexican cheeses, in these bowls. If you like a little spice, add some of your favorite hot sauce on top.
My family really enjoys breakfast for dinner, so these egg breakfast bowls are perfect. Chorizo is excellent to have on hand during busy weeknights because there are so many uses it for it. If we have leftover chorizo, we’ll add it to other meals, like tacos and
burritos, throughout the week.
How To Meal Prep Chorizo Breakfast Bowls
These healthy breakfast bowls are ideal for meal prep. I’d recommend scrambling the eggs instead of frying them since scrambled eggs will reheat better. Make the potatoes and chorizo and assemble in meal prep containers.
- Omit the chorizo if you want to make these bowls vegetarian.
- Add in black beans for some extra fiber and protein.
- Omit the cheese for dairy-free.
- Sub the baby gold or red potatoes for sweet potatoes.
- Top with pico de gallo.
