How To Make chorizo and eggs

  • 1
    In a large skillet heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil or bacon fat over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened. Move to side of pan and add broken-up bits of chorizo into the pan. Stir until sausage is cooked through but not necessarily browned. If not using LEAN choriza, drain the excess fat from the pan before proceeding.
  • 2
    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. Stir constantly until the eggs begin to set, but are still moist. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Serve immediately with a side of warmed corn tortillas and cilantro as a garnish, if desired.
