Healthy, delicious Mexican Breakfast Burrito Bowls with roasted sweet potatoes, seasoned black beans, homemade turkey chorizo (optional- or use vegan chorizo) avocado, cilantro and an egg (or sub scrambled tofu). Easy, Full of flavor and lightened-up! Vegan-adaptable.
Weekend mornings start off slow around here, with breakfast sometimes morphing into the lunch hour. By the time we’ve gotten around to it, it’s already noon and we’re famished. It was Brian who first started making these Mexican Breakfast Bowls for us, and I really love them because each time they are just a little different, based on what we have on hand and what’s in season.
Here, they’re with roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, a lightened-up turkey chorizo, avocado, cilantro, scallions and an egg. (Leave off the chorizo, or sub soy chorizo for a vegetarian version.) In summer, add tomatoes or sautéed bell pepper or even zucchini, keeping it seasonal. In fall, try it with braised kale, or white beans and sage. You get the idea!
The eggs can be scrambled, poached, over easy, sunny side up or however you like. You can even leave the eggs off altogether and use scrambled tofu, which I really like too.
The sweet potatoes can be roasted in the oven or cooked in a skillet.
The easy flavorful Turkey Chorizo can be whipped up very quickly – and the best thing is the leftover turkey chorizo is delicious in so many other things too – think tacos, burritos, pizza or nachos or this Enchilada Pie Recipe.
If looking for a vegan alternative, you can always try this Walnut Chorizo, or use store-bought version.
Heat and season the black beans. Scramble, poach or fry the eggs. And once your ingredients are ready, just assemble, dividing among the bowls.
Top with avocado, cilantro, scallions and tomatoes when in season.
Drizzle with hot sauce or a little dollop of sour cream.

Absolutely great! This is one of those dishes that you can just come back over and over again! It’s easy to make, it is well balanced and the flavor combination makes this an instant favorite!
Wonderful to hear Dmitry!
Made a few modifications to the recipe. I had to use what I had available in the kitchen. I didn’t have chorizo, so I had no meat. I don’t like sweet potatoes so I used hash browns. Everything else was the same. I scrambled my eggs. Everything tasted great. Nice, simple, clean breakfast.
Sylvia – my husband and son LOVE this recipe. I make it using turkey chorizo once a week for dinner. We never get tired of it. I used to have very little confidence and very little interest in cooking, but your recipes have transformed me into a really fantastic cook! I never imagined I would be so into it. I can’t thank you enough! Please keep them coming 🙂
🥰 Awwww, love hearing this! Thanks Heather!
This recipe turned out beautifully! And tasted oh so good! Would be lovely for brunch. I doubled the recipe for our bigger family and also did half chorizo and half ground beef to lessen the spice factor for my little ones. A big hit in our house!
Perfect, love it!
How would you recommend reheating this?
Really good and filling. I made it as a skillet breakfast and added some chopped spinach to make it even healthier and added cumin and cayenne for more flavor.
This was super yummy! I did it with ingredients entirely from Trader Joe’s, including their soy chorizo (it is out of this world!). I also added some sautéed greens for an extra power kick. You can make a healthier “sour cream” sauce by just adding a squeeze of lemon juice and a bit of water to some Greek yogurt until desired consistency. Next time, I think I’ll add fajitas, as well! Affordable, healthy, and very filling. Thanks!
Love it thanks for sharing your adaptions!!!
I didn’t know breakfast could even have this much flavor! This looks absolutely incredible!
Ahhh, thanks Karly!
