Eggs with Sausage - what a classic. Made around the world - whats not to love?
The Mexican, or Tex-Mex, or Amer-Mex way is Huevos con Chorizo - a.k.a. Eggs with Chorizo. Often served with beans (refried or not) on the side, with corn tortillas. It is simple, hearty, filling, and delicious.
Ingredients are simple - eggs, chorizo, beans, tortillas, cheese. Fry the chorizo, add the eggs, serve with the beans (which you heated along the way) and cheese and tortillas. But there are a few secrets....
For my breakfast this am, it included:
3 eggs from our chickens in the back yard
1/2 cup of refried beans (homemade, leftovers)
1/2/ cup fried onions and peppers (leftovers)
3/4 cup chorizo
Cheese and Tortilla Chips
This is a great use of leftovers - the onions/peppers, refried beans and chorizo were all leftovers - it makes breakfast a 5 minute meal, most of which is waiting for the frying pan to get hot.
Find a local mexican grocery that makes it's own chorizo - shop around - homemade sausage is all different and there are definitely regional differences. Consider it an adventure. I got mine (this time) from La Nortena. Many stores sell chorizo (walmart, for example) but I find it meh at best.
Buy Mexican Chorizo, not Spanish Chorizo! Definitely different sausages.
Chorizo is not often hot - spicy yes, but hot, no. The hot stuff is usually called Longaniza.
Don't be pedantic with this recipe- use what you have. You can make it with tortillas, or like me, tortilla chips (El Milagro, of course)
Chorizo is fatty - live with it
For me, dirt simple
Re-heat chorizo in pan
Add eggs to hot chorizo
Cook till just done (no, don't you dare overcook them)
