Step 1

Brush a large skillet with olive oil.

Step 2

Char tortillas over a gas frame or directly on an electric burner (a grill also works well) until blackened in spots, turning with tongs. Arrange tortillas in a single layer in skillet. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 cup of the cheese and set aside.

Step 3

In a bowl whisk together the eggs and 2 tablespoons cilantro and season with salt and pepper. Saute the chorizo in a skillet over medium high heat until cooked through (5 minutes). Add green onions and saute another 2 minutes. Add egg mixture and stir until very softly set (1 minute). Remove from heat.

Step 4

Cook tortillas in skillet over high heat until beginning to crisp on bottom, but still soft and pliable (1 minute). Divide egg mixture among tortillas and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro. Fold each tortilla in half and serve with sour cream and salsa if desired.

.Great brunch recipe. I used 7" tortillas, Lightly toasted them, folded them and filled them. I cut the recipe back to two tacos. I used Grk yogurt instead of sour cream. Medium salsa was the last topper..
