The Stuff you need;

  • Olive oil (or bacon fat)
  • 1 small onion, diced (red, white or yellow onions)
  • 1 medium jalapeno` seeded and diced (use gloves!)
  • 1/2 lb (4-6 links) Mexican chorizo sausage, removed from casing
  • 5 to 6 eggs
  • Salt, pepper for seasoning
  • GARNISHES: optional…
  • Tortillas – (warmed for serving)
  • diced cilantro
  • sliced avocado
  • diced tomatoes
  • shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese
  • What to do with the Stuff: 
  • Heat 2 TBS olive oil or bacon fat in large skillet over medium heat
  • Add the chopped onions, and jalapenos, and saute`until softened
  • Move onions & jalapenos to the side of the pan
  • Add ground up bits of chorizo
  • Use a wooden spatula to break up the pieces of sausage
  • Stir until the sausage is cooked through, though not necessarily browned
  • If you are not using lean chorizo, drain the excess fat from the pan before proceeding
  • If you are not using lean chorizo, you may want to cook the chorizo first, draining the excess fat, then remove to a plate while you cook the onions in the remaining fat. We usually cook with lean chorizo, so excess fat isn’t an issue
  • Crack the eggs one at a time, into the pan
  • Break the yolks and stir the eggs into the sausage
  • Add a light sprinkling of salt and pepper
  • Stir constantly until the eggs begin to set
  • Remove from heat

Serve immediately with a side of warmed corn tortillas and garnishes listed above.

Bon Appetite!
