How to Make Chorizo con Huevos
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.
- If you use beef chorizo, it is usually leaner.
- You will need to add oil to cook it.
- Pork chorizo is fattier and usually can cook in its own fat.
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 Cook Chorizo
- 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 to cook chorizo in my video for Chorizo con Papas.
Chorizo Around the World
All around the world, people have made their own versions.
Don’t taste Mexican chorizo straight from the package because it’s not cooked and you will die! LOL. Ok, maybe not, but it will make you sick.
Spanish chorizo is delicious, and it is cooked. Love Portuguese chourico. Mexican pork chorizo is raw.
