Chorizo & Egg Breakfast Taco | A Dorm Room Recipe

Why A Dorm Room Recipe?

I have two really good reasons to write about dorm room recipes.

Chorizo and Egg Taco from our Dorm Room Cuisine eCookbook. A great resource for the new college student.

First, my amazing daughter is in college and is learning how to cook.  I love coming up with recipes she and her friends can enjoy while picking up some cooking skills along the way.  When she was home for the holidays, we went wild with some dorm room cuisine.  We worked together to problem solve cooking issues and ingredient issues.  We spent some quality time together.  This brings me to my second reason.

We wrote a cookbook!  Yikes!  I don’t know what we were thinking but we had a lot of fun.  This was a long project that took a few months and a lot of work and  we are very excited.

Today I am going to share with you one of the recipes from our eCookbook.  This recipe is cooked in a rice cooker.  Actually a very specific type of rice cooker.  We used a non-hinged rice cooker with a free standing lid.  It is easier to cook with this type of rice cooker when you are using the rice cooker for cooking other things besides rice.  With the independent lid you can use your rice cooker like a skillet or soup pot.  This is important because hot plates, toasters, toaster ovens etc usually aren’t allowed in dorm rooms.  Appliances with an auto shut-off usually are.  The rice cooker has an auto shut off so they typically are allowed.  An added bonus is that this type of rice cooker is usually much cheaper than the fancier hinged variety.

Our eCookbook has lots of tips for cooking and eating well in a dorm environment.

The rice cooker we used in our college eCookbook.

The Chorizo & Egg Breakfast taco is one of my favorites.  I love chorizo, especially in eggs and this recipe is so easy, it’s crazy.  You can even make a double or triple batch and wrap the extra tacos in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge.  You may need to keep the lid on your rice cooker so that the cook button will engage. Every rice cooker is different.  Once the food weighs down the cooker, generally you can keep the lid off.

In just a few minutes, you have a super tasty breakfast that can be wrapped in foil and taken to go.  Perfect for a college student.

If you are in a real kitchen, you can just cook this in a skillet.

I hope you try this recipe, let me know how it turned out.
