Now add these cooked chorizo and potatoes in a bowl. Cover it to keep it warm. Clean the frying pan. You can just wipe it.

Now is the time to warm the flour tortillas. Put the tortillas in the oven till they get warm. While the tortillas warm, you can cook the egg. Whisk the 2 eggs in a bowl till they break up. Season the egg with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to the same pan in which you cooked the chorizo. Make sure it is wiped out though! Heat olive oil in it and then once it is hot, pour the beaten eggs. You do not need to do anything to the eggs till the set at the edges. Now once they are set, you need to scramble them. You need scrambled eggs out of these eggs. This should be done in about 3-4 minutes.
