Delicious breakfast casserole that I came up with based on traditional Mexican breakfast fare, Chorizo con Huevos, or simply Chorizo with Eggs. This recipe freezes and stores very well. I like to take this to work and heat it up, in the microwave, for an easy breakfast on the fly. Serve with a nice dollop of Crema or Sour Cream and your favorite sauce or salsa for added kick.
