The almighty breakfast taco has been a Texas staple for a very long time and it’s something that we Texans generally take very seriously. You can spend hours arguing over the best breakfast tacos in town, or you can make your own amazing morsels at home. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for duck egg breakfast tacos that’s sure to meet popular appeal:
Yields: 2 Tacos
2 Flour or Corn tortillas
2 Teaspoons of Butter
2 Duck Eggs (They’re bigger than chicken eggs)
1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
1 Handful Tortilla Chips
1/4 Cup Chorizo (Seitan or Regular)
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large saucepan on medium heat melt 1 teaspoon of butter and add the 1/4 cup of chorizo, cook throughly.
Add 2 duck eggs, beaten, and lower heat to medium low. Cook the eggs in the chorizo until they’re almost done, don’t cook them all the way through just yet.
Take a a handful of tortilla ships and crush them into the pan, mix throughly.
Top with grated cheddar cheese and cover turning heat to simmer.
In another, smaller pan, melt a teaspoon of butter on high and heat the tortillas until slightly browned.
Add filling to the tortilla and top with your favorite salsa.
