Equipment

  • large skillet

Ingredients

  • 8 oz chorizo links casings removed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Heat a skillet under medium heat on the stove. Once warm, add chorizo.
  • Break up chorizo into medium sized chunks and let brown for 2-3 minutes. Once browned on bottom side, break into smaller chunks and allow second side to brown. Cook chorizo, stirring gently, until completely cooked through (when no pink is showing).
  • Crack eggs into a small bowl or measuring cup. Add salt and pepper and beat quickly with a fork, until mixed.
  • Push the cooked chorizo to the edges of the pan and pour the eggs into the middle. Using a spatula or spoon, move back and forth as you would scrambled eggs. Stir the eggs gently until cooked through (or to your liking).
  • Serve as is or with warm tortillas and hot sauce.

Notes

  • Too Greasy: If the chorizo results in too much oil from cooking, there are two options to drain some off the grease. You can either use a paper towel and dip it into the oil to soak up some of the chorizo, or you can pour it out from the skillet. If doing the latter, be careful that none of the fat drips down the side of the skillet.
  • Storage Directions: Keep cooked chorizo con huevos in an airtight container for up to one week in the refrigerator.
  • Freezing Directions: Freeze for up to 2 months.
  • Reheating Directions: When in the refrigerator, microwave for 60-seconds (with a lid loosely on top if possible so the chorizo and egg fat doesn’t splatter!).
