El CIELO BREAKFAST TACOS

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 El Cielo 14cm Full Flavour corn tortillas or Light Flavour corn tortillas
  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/2 pound chorizo
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 oz), at room temperature, plus more as needed
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 Cup cotija cheese, crumbled or grated

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Plunk the potatoes in a saucepan and add enough cold water to cover along with a teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Immediately drain the potatoes in a colander in the sink and rinse them under cold running water, until they are very dry and completely cool.
  • Heat a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo, spread evenly around the skillet, and cook, until nicely caramelized on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir to get the uncooked parts of the chorizo in contact with the skillet and continue cooking until all the meat is cooked through, about 5 minutes more. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a large bowl.
  • If the skillet looks dry, add more oil to the fat in the skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Spread the potatoes evenly in the skillet and cook, stirring and turning gently with a spatula, until golden brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Dump the potatoes into the bowl with the chorizo and mix gently. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • Pour off any excess fat in the skillet into a small heatproof bowl. Place the skillet over medium heat. One at a time, add the tortillas and fry on each side until they soften and blister slightly, about 30 seconds per side. If the skillet dries out, add a wee small amount of the reserved fat (or, if there wasn’t any fat to reserve, a little olive oil). Keep the tortillas warm by stacking them and wrapping them in a kitchen towel as they come out of the skillet.
  • In a small nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add a scant teaspoon butter and swirl the skillet to mix the fats. Crack an egg into the skillet and cook until the white is just set, about 3 minutes. Slide the egg carefully onto a platter you’ve rinsed with hot water and cover to keep warm. Repeat to cook the remaining eggs in the remaining butter, adding more oil as needed.
  • To assemble the tacos, place 2 warm tortillas on each plate and spoon a few tablespoons chorizo and potatoes in the middle of each tortilla. Top each with a fried egg and radish slices. Finish with a big pinch cilantro and a sprinkle cotija. Serve right away.
