Breakfast Taquitos with an Avocado Lime Sauce

Breakfast Taquitos with Avocado Lime Sauce

Directions:                    

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a medium pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Combine onion, bell pepper, garlic, jalapeños, 2 teaspoons salt, pepper and eggs. Sauté for 5 minutes or until eggs are cooked completely. Reserve.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine egg mixture, chorizo, 1/4 cup cilantro and cheeses. Toss to combine.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons mixture to one end of tortilla. Roll tortilla tightly and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  5. In a large sauté pan over medium-low heat, add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add taquitos and fry for 10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy, rotating every few minutes.
  6. Remove toothpicks and transfer taquitos to a small baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes to ensure cheese is fully melted.
  7. In a food processor, combine avocados, sour cream, lime juice and remaining 2 teaspoons of salt. Pulse until smooth. Drizzle sauce over taquitos. Garnish with green onions and remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro.

TIP: Complete steps 1 through 5 to save time in the morning. Store taquitos on baking sheet, refrigerate overnight and pop in the oven for a quick breakfast!
