Chorizo Con Huevos (or Mexican Chorizo with Eggs) is pork sausage mixed with eggs.
This is an easy to make breakfast or Sunday brunch recipe, and it’s absolutely delicious!
You know when you gotta get food on the table FAST, and it has to be fabulous?
I hate that. I really really hate that.
Especially in the morning because I need some java in me before I even consider turning on the stove.
Chorizo con Huevos is one of those yummy yum yum, easy breakfast meals that you can make in lighting speed time.
5 ingredients and everyone is happy, even the cook.
When I was a kid, we couldn’t find a lot of Mexican products at the grocery store.
Nowadays, I can find chorizo at just about every grocery store.
This is pork chorizo. You can also use beef chorizo.
Chorizo is basically spiced pork sausage. And since we’re all pig fans (or at least, most of us are), there are many types of chorizo.
For my vegetarian friends, soy chorizo is good too. Many people say that it’s almost like the real thing.
I’m not too sure about it, but I will eat it if it’s in front of me. Lol.
Who can say NO to a tasty breakfast taco?!
We love our breakfasts in Mexico.
My personal favorite is Huevos a la Mexicana, but if you have leftover tortillas, you can make some delicious Chilaquiles Verdes.
How to Make Chorizo con Huevos
- Cook it in a pan and break it down with your spatula.
- Before you add the eggs, drain it.
If you don’t drain it, you will die. LOL.
Ok, I’m in exaggerating, goofy mood today, but it will make your Chorizo con Huevos come out gross and greasy and yucky. No one wants that.
You can watch how I drain chorizo in my video for Chorizo con Papas.
