The Best Chorizo Sausage Breakfast Tacos

These savory Chorizo Sausage Breakfast Tacos are made with turkey sausage, cotija cheese, fresh kale, and NO eggs. You'll love these low-carb breakfast tacos because they're full of flavor, packed with protein, and perfect for meal prep.













For the Tacos

  • 1 lb. Jennie-O Chorizo chorizo turkey sausage* (see notes)
  • 8 oz. fresh kale
  • ½ onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 16 low carb street taco tortillas
  • ⅓ C cotija cheese

For the Jalapeno Ranch

  • ½ C Bolthouse Farms Ranch Dressing
  • ¼ C nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ C fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno, deseeded


  1. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Saute onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, then add in the turkey sausage (and seasonings, if using). Brown and crumble sausage until little pink remains, about 5 minutes. Fold in the kale and allow to soften, about 2 minutes. Drain any excess liquid or oil and add the taco mix to a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, make the jalapeno ranch by adding all "ranch" ingredients to a food processor or blender and blending until smooth.
  3. To serve, scoop ¼ cup of taco mix onto a tortilla and top with 1 teaspoon cotija cheese and 1 tablespoon jalapeno ranch.


*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.
