Preparation
  1. Heat taco shells as directed on package.
  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.
  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.
  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.
