The only thing we’re craving more than The Cheesecake Factory’s brown bread? Brunch. Among the slew of the chain’s recipes available online is one for their breakfast tacos, a drool-worthy breakfast beauty if we’ve ever seen one. And luckily, they’re super easy to make at home.
We’ve already tackled the restaurant’s famous Cajun jambalaya pasta and life-changing warm crab and artichoke dip. But these breakfast tacos are even simpler. Even the pickiest of kids won’t have any complaints. Read on for the full recipe.
1 cup raw chorizo
¼ cup yellow onion, diced into ¼-inch pieces
1 tablespoon butter
2 eggs, beaten
¼ cup American cheese, grated
¼ cup cheddar cheese, grated
4 corn tortillas, street taco-sized
1 tablespoon canola oil
¼ cup jack cheese, grated
2 teaspoons chipotle mayonnaise
¼ cup fried potato sticks
2 tablespoons pico de gallo, drained
1 teaspoon cilantro, thinly sliced
½ cup black beans, warm
1 tablespoon white cheddar cheese, grated
Guacamole, sour cream and salsa as desired
Step 1: Place the chorizo in a nonstick pan and break it up with a rubber spatula. Add the onions and peppers. Mix and continue to cook until they begin to caramelize. Set aside in a warm place until needed.
Step 2: Heat the butter to a light sizzle in a small nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat.
Step 3: Add the eggs, American cheese and half of the cheddar cheese into the pan and scramble to incorporate. Continue cooking until the eggs become slightly firm.
Step 4: Brush both sides of the tortillas evenly with canola oil and place onto a griddle or large nonstick pan to heat, about 10 to 15 seconds.
Step 5: Flip and sprinkle the grated jack and remaining cheddar cheeses evenly onto the tortillas, continuing to heat them until the cheese begins to melt, and the tortillas are soft and warm, about 10 to 15 seconds.
Step 6: Place the tortillas, side by side and cheese side up, onto a large platter. Place the chorizo and peppers mix evenly into each tortilla.
Step 7: Place the eggs evenly into each taco.
Step 8: Drizzle the chipotle mayonnaise evenly into the tacos.
Step 9: Place the potato sticks evenly into the tacos. Place the pico de gallo evenly into the tacos.
Step 10: Sprinkle the cilantro evenly onto the tacos.
Step 11: Place the black beans into a small dish and sprinkle the white cheddar cheese onto them.
Step 12: Serve with guacamole, sour cream and your favorite salsa.
