A note about serious food allergies

"Breakfast" and "burrito" are perhaps the two greatest words that can be put side by side. Our version with chorizo-spiced pork delivers on that promise and then goes above and beyond. Bursting with scrambled eggs, smoky poblano pepper, and cheddar-jack cheese, you'll be shocked so much flavor fits inside a tortilla. Along with crispy plantain tostones, this Southwest-style breakfast portends a great start to your day.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel plantain and cut into ½” slices. Stem poblano pepper, core, and cut into ½" dice (remove seeds for less spice). Peel and halve onion. Cut halves into small ¼” dice. Mince garlic. Stem and coarsely chop cilantro.

  • Step 2 - Make the Tostones
    2

    Make the Tostones

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add sliced plantains to hot pan and cook 2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Remove to plate and let cool slightly. Once cooled, lay slices on a clean surface and, using the bottom of a clean pan, smash plantains to ¼” thickness. Return to pan, replenishing oil if necessary, and cook an additional 4 minutes per side, or until deep golden brown. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and place in oven until ready to plate.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Pork

    Cook the Pork

    While tostones cook, heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add garlic, ground pork, and seasoning blend to hot pan and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees. Stir in cilantro and season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Transfer to a plate or bowl, and wipe pan clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook Veggies and Eggs

    Cook Veggies and Eggs

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat in pan used for pork. Add poblano pepper (to taste) and red onion to hot pan and cook 2 minutes, while stirring, until vegetables are tender and slightly charred. Add butter, melt, and add liquid eggs. Use a rubber spatula to constantly scrape along the bottom of the pan until eggs are set and a little wet, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner, season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper, and transfer to a plate or bowl. Wipe pan clean.

  • Step 5 - Assemble the Burrito

Place veggie scramble, cheese, and cooked pork in center of tortillas. Fold sides of burrito in and gently roll burrito away from you while keeping filling tucked in.
