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.

Variations:

  • 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.

Ingredients

For the potatoes:

  • 12 (1 lb) baby gold or red potatoes, quartered
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • fresh black pepper, to taste

For the bowls:

  • olive oil spray
  • 1-1/3 cups cooked turkey chorizo, heated through
  • 8 large eggs
  • kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp crumbled Mexican cheese, queso blanco, queso fresco
  • 4 ounces sliced avocado, from 1 small haas
  • cilantro or scallions, for garnish
  • Cholula hot sauce, for serving

Instructions

  1. I made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent! So many of your recipes are in my regular rotation, and this is another to add to the list. Thank you!

  2. Just wondering where you find turkey chorizo. I have not seen it in the grocery stores. Long Island, NY Thanks

  3. Fantastic!!!  Sooo flavorful.  Made this for breakfast this morning for the fam.   Can easily be adapted to serve less or more.  I love knowing that I can now make my own healthy chorizo and we’ll be using some for taco Tuesday!   Thanks for yet another great recipe.  We cook almost exclusively from Skinnytaste these days and it’s paying off in a tasty way!  

  4. This is the best ST dish I have made. I used the chorizo recipe on the website and it is so flavorful! It will become my go-to for a lot of things. The seasoned potatoes, chorizo, and runny egg yolk are so meant to be. 

    One question, is the 2T of cheese each bowl or distributed throughout all four bowls? 

    Thanks so much!

  5. Made this today – very good recipe. Used regular chorizo as it was what I had at home and cooked the potatoes in the air fried for reduced time 20 min total. My family loved it! P.S forgot to put the cheese but still delicious!

  6. OMG that was delicious!!! Used a sweet potato and only had cheddar cheese. Everything blends great together. Easy and filling and terrific. Thanks for another great recipe.

  7. Where did you find turkey chorizo?

  8. This is so good, and the turkey chorizo really does taste like chorizo! I did use half the vinegar for the meat seasoning, as suggested by some comments on the turkey chorizo recipe (and also because I’m not a big fan of vinegar flavors generally), but otherwise followed to a T. Will definitely make this again.

  9. I bulked up the nutrition by sauteeing 2 poblano peppers and a sliced onion in a splash of chicken broth then did the turkey chorizo in the frond. OMG so good!!

  10. Awesome idea, I love the turket chorizo! I think I may try this with sweet potato and maybe black beans!

  11. Hey Gina – I’m sure this is more than obvious but JUST TO MAKE SURE –

    Is it 12 1lb potatoes or just 1lbs potatoes?

  12. Can you air fry the potatoes and if so, what temp would I set the fryer at and how long would you cook them for?

  13. I love your chorizo recipe!!!! And everyone I’ve shared it with loves it too!!!

  14. I LOVE the chorizo-potato combo! ❤️ Can’t wait to try this recipe!
