Excerpt from Austin Breakfast Tacos: Jose Luis Perez, El Primo
Why do you think Austinites love breakfast tacos so much?
I really don’t know what has made the breakfast taco so popular. When I first opened on First Street, it was just me and Torchy’s Tacos. Now, no matter where you go, you can find one. At first, there were like one to two hundred food trucks; now there are over a thousand, and not just breakfast tacos but all kinds.

Chorizo, Egg and Cheese Taco
Cook chorizo on a hot griddle for about 3 minutes, or more if you prefer. Pour the egg on the griddle and mix with the chorizo until it makes an omelet and then scramble. Heat up the tortilla until warm. Add cheddar cheese on top of the egg and chorizo until it melts, and wrap it all inside the tortilla.
