  • Ingredients 8


  • 1 package (4.7 oz) Old El Paso™ Stand ‘n Stuff taco shells
  • 1 lb ground chorizo sausage
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can (16 oz) Old El Paso™ refried beans, heated
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
  • Make it FRESH toppings, as desired (see below)


Step 1 Heat taco shells as directed on package.

Step 2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown. Stir in chiles. Continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes, sitting occasionally, until liquid evaporates. Transfer to bowl, and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out skillet.

Step 3 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat eggs and salt with fork or whisk until well mixed. Return skillet to medium heat; heat butter just until it begins to sizzle and look hot. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist and creamy.

Step 4 Spread 3 tablespoons heated refried beans in bottom of each taco shell. Spoon 1/4 cup chorizo mixture into each shell. Divide eggs evenly, about 1/4 cup each, over filling, then top with cheese. Serve immediately with FRESH toppings.
