When you think of a "classic savory breakfast food," what comes to mind? I always think of eggs first. And while they're a great source of nutrition (omega-3 fats, good cholesterol, and protein), I almost feel like I get hit in the head with the "eggs for breakfast" mentality and it's a total turnoff.
Does that mean I don't ever have eggs for breakfast? No. In fact, these breakfast burritos are one of my favorite ways to have eggs in the morning and I've grown fond of my recipe for the best meal prep egg muffins.
BUT. I try to have healthy breakfast recipes on the blog that don't need eggs.
When I started doing research for "breakfast tacos" and "low carb breakfast tacos," I swear every single recipe called for eggs! It was almost annoying. Like, c'mon people, there are other ways to make low carb breakfast tacos besides using eggs!
So that's how today's recipe for Chorizo Sausage Breakfast Tacos came to be. I wanted an easy breakfast, ready in 30 minutes or less, that had tons of delicious flavor and no eggs. These chorizo sausage tacos are everything I wanted and I promise you'll love them!
Like I said, I wanted these breakfast tacos to be easy to make, so there's only a few steps here. Plus, you can do half the work during your weekly meal prep or the night before!
Step 1: crumble and brown your turkey sausage. If you couldn't find the pre-seasoned sausage, you can use a seasoning packet like this one or this one OR make your own homemade chorizo seasoning using the spices below:
Add in the onion and minced garlic while the sausage cooks. The oils from the sausage will help soften the aromatics faster and reduce the total amount of oil you need.
Step 2: prepare the jalapeno ranch. This homemade dressing is foolproof and you will LOVE it! Just make sure to deseed your jalapeno or else your mouth will be on fire haha. (I have a 15 second tutorial here to help you out!) Add all the ranch ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Yum.
Step 3: serve! Grab your tortillas and spoon 1/4 cup of the prepared sausage mix on top, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cheese and 1 tablespoon of ranch on top. That's it! Breakfast is served!

*I've been able to find this specific flavor of turkey sausage at most stores, but if you cannot find it, just grab one pound of Jennie-O turkey sausage and a packet of chorizo seasoning from the international aisle. You can also make your own chorizo seasoning from scratch. See the blog post for the full recipe for the chorizo seasoning.
