Chorizo con Huevos

I adore Spanish food. I never attempted to make this before, but I had plenty of chorizo left in the freezer. We decided to make breakfast out of it. Just so you know, the picture will look extremely meaty because we only had five eggs. I modified the recipe to include a lot more eggs, so the meal won't be so meaty. Feel free to modify the amount of meat or eggs! Oh and if you haven't guessed by now, chorizo con huevos translates to chorizo (a Spanish sausage) with eggs. This recipe is extremely simple and delicious. We actually attempted to make Spanish rice with this meal, but it turned out horribly because my friend did not follow directions :).

Chorizo con Huevos
 4-5 servings.


- 10 eggs (the idea is 2 eggs per person, which we couldn't do)
- 3 chorizo sausages (we used a store bought type)
- 1/2 cup of salsa (make your own or use a store bought jar)
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 small diced onion, diced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 cup of grated cheese (we used cheddar and mozzarella)


1. Cook the sausage in oil (any kind you desire). Break up the sausage into pieces while you're cooking.
2. While the sausage is cooking, crack the 10 eggs into a bowl and whisk.
3. When the sausage is cooked, pour the egg mixture over the sausage.
4. Add the 1/2 cup of salsa and mix.
5. Add the bell peppers, onions, and garlic. Mix and scramble into your liking. Add the cheese
6. When egg is finished cooking and cheese has melted, serve!

Tortillas go great with this dish, especially if your dish turns out as meaty as ours :p. You can also serve it with rice as well.
