Expert Tips

  • Popular in Mexican and Spanish cuisines, chorizo is a coarse pork sausage that's generously seasoned with garlic and chili powder. Mexican chorizo is made with fresh pork while Spanish chorizo is made with smoked pork. Smoked pork chorizo can be used in this recipe; cook only the potatoes for a few minutes, then add the sausage and continue cooking just until thoroughly heated, another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Refrigerated hash-brown potatoes can be used in place of the frozen variety.
  • Bell pepper can be used in place of the green onions.

More About This Recipe

  • You may note in the ingredients list for this chorizo burrito that it calls for tortillas that have been heated. That’s because heating your tortillas just a bit will make it much easier to wrap them around the filling (and as a bonus, it makes burritos taste a bit better!). We’ve all rolled a few burritos that fell apart almost immediately when taking a bite. The technique just takes practice, but heating the tortillas will make them more pliable and easier to wrap around the filling securely. Heat your tortillas by placing one at a time on the skillet just for about 10 seconds or so on each side. You don’t want the tortillas to get crispy! Then set them aside and cover so they stay nice and warm for when your filling is ready. Use this tip not only for this burrito recipe, but all burrito recipes. Once you’ve tried burritos, give another classic Mexican dish a try. How about enchiladas?
