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.

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.
