Chorizo and Egg Tacos

Chorizo and egg tacos (or Tacos de chorizo con huevo) were my favorite childhood meal. If you grew up in a Mexican household, you knew that these foods were always in stock: beans, eggs, tortillas and chorizo. I am so excited to share my vegan version of chorizo and egg tacos with you all. It’s super easy to make, takes less than 20 minutes and is so satisfying!
Mexican Chorizo is not to be confused with Spanish Chorizo. Mexican chorizo is a spicy ground meat sausage that is commonly paired with eggs, beans and tortillas. Luckily it is 2022 and vegan chorizo (also known as Soyrizo) is now a thing! There are many different vegan versions found in grocery stores but my favorite is the one from Trader Joe’s. It’s my favorite because of the authentic flavor and it’s affordable price of $1.99. I’ve tricked many of my non-vegan, Mexican friends/family members plenty of times with this one.
If you’re looking for a homemade vegan chorizo recipe, I highly recommend trying this one out. It is one of the best vegan chorizo recipes I’ve ever tried.

Tips and Substitutes:

I highly recommend using extra firm/pressed tofu for best result. Here I used Trader Joe’s high protein tofu. It is already pressed so no need to do it yourself.
If you don’t have vegetable broth you can also use water, slightly less flavorful so up your game on the spices and seasonings here.
I highly recommend using garlic powder instead of raw garlic here for flavor purposes. I’ve tried both and garlic powder seems to mix in much better.
To get a nice yellow egg-like color you must use turmeric. For the egg-like flavor make sure you use black salt also known as Kala Namak. Unless you have an indian store nearby, I recommend getting it online.
If for some reason you are not a fan of tofu I recommend adding Soyrizo to beans or Just Egg.
Soyrizo con Huevo pairs best with avocado, tortilla, beans and salsa! You can also use it in burrito bowls, burritos, tacos and more. Vegan chorizo tacos are my personal favorite!

These chorizo and egg tacos bring me back to my childhood every time. They are so easy, quick, and super delicious! Pair with breakfast potatoes or refried beans and enjoy.


  • 1 block of tofu, extra firm
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1/23/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup vegan chorizo
  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk or vegan sour cream (optional but highly recommended)
  • 1/2 Tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tsp black salt (Kala Namak)
  • 1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat pan on medium heat and once it’s hot, add oil and onion. Cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Use your hands to crumble the tofu into the pan. Make sure to not crumble it too much because it will continue to crumble in the pan. Fry it along with the onions.
  3. After 2-3 minutes add about 1/4 cup vegetable broth and your crumbled tofu.
  4. Add vegan chorizo, seasonings, and stir in until well incorporated. Cook for about 5 minutes adding splashes of vegetable broth throughout as it dries up.
  5. Finally, add coconut milk or vegan sour cream and cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Once it is done serve with tortillas, and enjoy!
