Simple Ingredients

Move over ordinary scrambled eggs, this spicy chorizo and eggs recipe will energize! Make it and enjoy in just minutes using one pan.

Chorizo – There are two kinds of chorizo – fully cooked Spanish sausage, and Mexican which is raw. This recipe calls for the Mexican variety. No chorizo? Use regular sausage and add a tablespoon of homemade southwest seasoning.

Eggs – Fresh eggs are always best. Check by dropping each egg into a glass of water. If they sink to the bottom they’re still fresh.

Variations – Feel free to add in diced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, black olives, jalapenos, or green chiles. Blend in some shredded cheddar, Monterey jack, a Mexican blend, or cotija crumbles for a cheesy flavor!

Love Creamy Eggs?

A dash of salt will make the eggs creamier, but you can also whisk in a little half-and-half or even heavy cream for ultra creamy eggs!

Tips & Tricks

  • Chorizo is best when cooked fresh, but it can be cooked in advance and kept in the refrigerator (don’t drain that delicious oil) until ready to reheat.
  • Eggs and salt (or other add-ins) can be whisked together and kept in a tightly covered container. Simply give it a good shake when you’re ready to cook!
